Hi, I’m Adam Heller.
Today, let’s talk about spinal stenosis.
Spinal stenosis, a very common diagnosis for back pain. The question is, does spinal stenosis actually cause back pain or is spinal stenosis just there and you have back pain?
There are certainly some arguments going on in the medical community, in the non-medical community, and certainly in the pain relief community because there have been studies that have shown that there are a lot of people, they’re given an MRI, and the MRI shows that they have spinal stenosis. Yet they’ve never suffered!
They’ve never had any pain.
So, how is it possible if some people have that same structural abnormality, but they don’t have any pain?
A recent pilot at Mayo Clinic was done and there were people, every single patient that had spinal stenosis, according to the writeup, was pain free and case closed within 28 days. All with a linguistic talk-only intervention.
So, it was a different approach using the brain. Every single case, according to the writeup, was closed and the people were pain free within 28 days.
What does that mean for you?
It means that perhaps there’s some more information for you. Perhaps there’s another viewpoint. Perhaps you want to chat with your doctor and you want to ask what’s possible for you.
At the end of the day, we all have to make our own decisions as to what’s best for us and sometimes that’s really overwhelming. So, the more you arm yourself with information, the better the questions you can ask, the better the information you get, the better you can work with your doctor, the better results that you can have.
Spinal stenosis: cause of pain or not? Maybe.
You’ve gotten some new information that you can use.
Thanks so much for watching this video.
I hope to see you again soon.
