Effective Spinal Stenosis Care

If conservative treatments fail to alleviate the symptoms of spinal stenosis, patients can seek specialized spinal care from the Center for Minimally Invasive Neurosurgery, led by board-certified neurosurgeon Praveen Reddy, MD, MCh. With locations in Spring, Conroe, Kingwood, Willis, and The Woodlands, Texas, the center offers advanced minimally invasive surgical techniques to address pain and disability resulting from spinal stenosis. By widening the narrowed spinal canal, the skilled team aims to provide relief and improve the quality of life for individuals experiencing back or neck pain.

Spinal Stenosis Q&A

Spinal stenosis, a prevalent source of neck and back discomfort, involves the narrowing of the spinal canal, potentially leading to nerve compression or damage as they traverse the vertebrae. The condition may arise from various factors, including arthritis, leading to facet joint damage, ligament thickening, and bone spur formation. Additionally, issues with intervertebral discs, such as degenerative disc disease or disc herniation, can contribute to spinal canal narrowing. These abnormalities may irritate or exert pressure on nerve roots, resulting in symptoms associated with spinal stenosis. Identifying spinal stenosis typically involves recognizing symptoms stemming from nerve compression due to disc, bone, or ligament impingement within the spinal canal. It is important to identify it to treat back pain before it gets too bad.


  • Numbness
  • Tingling
  • Pain
  • Weakness
  • Loss of function
  • Pins-and-needles sensation

If cervical stenosis affects the neck, these symptoms can extend to the arms, while lumbar stenosis in the lower back may lead to symptoms spreading into the hips and down the legs. Temporary relief from spinal stenosis pain can often be achieved by sitting bent forward, which provides the nerves with more room to alleviate discomfort.
