Spinal stenosis treatment: The treatment of spinal stenosis aims to ensure that the nerves getting compressed get relieved. The chances of any other nerves getting compressed within the vertebrae are reduced to a minimum. Cold therapy is advised for at least 20 minutes in a go. Physiotherapy also proves to be very beneficial for the treatment of spinal stenosis. Lumbar or cervical traction is provided to pull the vertebrae of the cervical and lumbar region apart and increase the gap between them. The pulling technique ensures that the pinched nerves are relieved, thereby relieving the patient from the symptoms.
