Cervical Spinal Canal Stenosis

When the spinal canal in the neck region becomes narrow due to reasons like age, wear & tear, injury, etc., then the condition is called cervical spinal canal stenosis.

Cervical Spinal Canal Stenosis Symptoms

Most individuals with cervical spinal canal stenosis might experience mild symptoms or not experience any symptoms at all due to the spinal cord’s accommodative tendency.

In cases where symptoms are apparent, following are the common cervical spinal canal stenosis symptoms experienced by patients:

  • Neck/shoulder pain
  • Arm/hand pain
  • Weakness or numbness in the arms/legs
  • Difficulty maintaining balance while walking
  • Absence of coordination & rise in clumsiness
  • Loss of normal bowel/bladder control

Cervical Spinal Canal Stenosis Causes

The cervical spinal canal stenosis causes may range from:

  • Age-related degeneration of the spine
  • Loss of water in the spinal discs over time
  • Thickening of the spinal joints & ligaments
  • Bone spurs
  • Spondylolisthesis
  • Genetic factors

All these causes result in the narrowing of the cervical spinal canal, causing compression of the spinal cord & nearby nerves and resulting in pain & inflammation.

Cervical Spinal Canal Stenosis Diagnosis

Diagnosing cervical spinal canal stenosis necessitates carrying out a number of imaging tests like MRI & CT scans. In some cases, a CT myelogram (CT scan conducted after injecting contrast dye in the cervical spinal canal) may be required for accurate diagnosis. Also, in rare instances, the healthcare professional may prescribe a shoulder MRI and/or ultrasound.
