Treating Spinal Stenosis the Right Way

MS - Orthopaedics, MBBS

What is spinal stenosis: The narrowing of the gaps in the spine or the backbone is called as spinal stenosis. This leads to pressure on the nerves and the spinal cord. 5% of cases of spinal stenosis are seen in the low back of the lumbar spine. In some cases the narrowing of the spine leads to the compressing of the nerve root, which leads to pain in the leg.

Causes of spinal stenosis: It can be caused by aging, arthritis, trauma to the spine, spondylolisthesis and tumor of the spine

Symptoms of spinal stenosis: There is constant pain in the back and legs as stenosis pinches the nerve responsible for sensation and muscle power. Other symptoms are numbness and tingling in the legs, frequent falling and pain while walking.

Treatment of spinal stenosis:
- A routine program with exercises and physical therapy are the best treatment for spinal stenosis. The exercises are not a complete cure but they are beneficial in keeping the patient active. A physical therapy can be supervised and once the period of the same is over people easily transition to the exercise program. The key for exercise is starting slowly in order to build strength.

- Generally, the patients are counseled not to perform strenuous activities as that might worsen the symptoms of spinal stenosis. In case of lumbar stenosis, patients find it comfortable when they are flexed forward. The doctor might recommend walking while being bent over and leaning when using a walker if not walking upright; sitting in recliners is also recommended instead of straight back chairs.

- Injections of cortisone are usually given in the epidural space. This is believed to relieve the symptoms of spinal stenosis temporarily. Though there have been studies which question the use of these injections as they lead to the risk of osteoporosis related fractures. This is still being pondered over by the doctors as a suitable treatment option as it has its own benefits and risks.

- Medications such as the anti inflammatory medicines like ibuprofen or aspirin are helpful in controlling the symptoms of spinal stenosis. Narcotic drugs might also prove to be helpful if used with care and for a short while. This is helpful for severe pain related to the nerves. Muscle relaxants like gabapentins might also be recommended. In some case antidepressants might also be given to provide relief from pain.
Though side effects are a concern when using these medications and the patient should let the doctor knows about their allergies.

Mr. Lybrate-user, age by itself is not a contraindication for surgery. You should accept the risks of surgery, and meet a neurosurgeon who sub specializes in pediatric branch and take advice. There is no single hospital in india which specializes in children. You can go to reputed national institutions like aiims, delhi or nimhans, bangalore.

Living with Parkinson's Disease

MD - Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation, MBBS

Parkinson's disease

Parkinson's disease affects the part of the brain that controls muscle movement. The exact cause of this disease is not known, but there is a decrease in a chemical called dopamine in the brains of people with Parkinson's. There is no cure for Parkinson's, but it often progresses slowly and the signs can be managed.


Signs:
The 4 most common signs of Parkinson's are:

tremors or shaking when at rest

muscle stiffness

slowed movement or problems starting a movement

problems with balance and movement

As these signs worsen, you may also have trouble walking, talking, swallowing or doing simple tasks such as bathing or dressing. As the disease progresses, other signs such as pain, bowel or bladder problems and sleep problems may occur.

Care issues:
When you start to show signs of this disease, you should consult a neurologist for diagnosis and start medicines. Then you should consult a physiatrist or rehabilitation physician for making rehabilitation plan to prevent early onset of disability. Rehabilitation plan contains medicines, physical therapy or specific exercises, occupation-specific advises brace, etc.
The physical therapist can help you learn exercises that can help you with movements.
You may need to work with your neurologist or physiatrist to make adjustments in your medicines to keep your signs controlled. Over time, many people have side effects from the medicines used to treat Parkinson's disease. You may also need occupational therapy or speech therapy to deal with signs as the disease progresses. As your signs get worse, surgery may be an option to reduce tremors.


Things you can do to manage your signs:

When walking
walk slowly with a straight posture and with your legs further apart.
Think about taking big steps to help keep your steps more normal.

use a 4-prong cane or a walker if needed.

if you become stuck or freeze in one place, rock gently from side to side or pretend to step over an object on the floor.

place tape strips on the floor to guide you through your house.

Remove area rugs and furniture from your walking path.

stand up from a chair or bed slowly to avoid feeling dizzy or lightheaded.


When using the bathroom
install grab bars on the walls beside toilets and inside showers and bathtubs to help you stand up.

use a shower chair inside the shower.

install an elevated toilet seat to make standing up easier after using the toilet.

shave with an electric razor.


When dressing
wear loafers or shoes with velcro.

wear simple dresses or pants with elastic waistbands such as sweatpants.


When eating or drinking:
use a cup with a large handle to make it easier to hold.

use a bowl instead of a plate to limit spills and make it easier to scoop up food.

Work closely with your rehabilitation team to manage your signs of Parkinson's disease. Rehabilitation can significantly improve your quality of life.
