    What is Myelopathy ?

    Myelopathy is a condition that refers to a disorder of the spinal cord or spinal nerves. Often caused by compression or irritation, this condition can occur after trauma, natural degeneration of the spine or another type of spinal deformity. Ranging in grade, severity and level, myelopathy is commonly caused by conditions such as spinal stenosis. As the spinal canal becomes narrowed (spinal stenosis), the spinal cord and surrounding nerves often become compressed. This leads to a number of chronic symptoms that can greatly reduce your quality of life, including:

    • Shooting pain and weakness
    • Radiating numbness into the hands and arms
    • Tingling in the hand and arms
    • Inability to walk or stand for long periods of time
    • Local pain and weakness
    • Loss of bowel or bladder control
    • Suffering from chronic pain and symptoms caused by myelopathy can prevent you from doing your hobbies or daily tasks.

    The first step to finding pain relief and recapturing a more active life is to reach out to your physician for a diagnosis. Once your condition is officially diagnosed as myelopathy, you and your doctor can work together to create a treatment plan that best fits your needs. Read on to learn more about the treatment options available for myelopathy, including traditional open neck or back surgery as well as minimally invasive spine surgery.
