At-home pain management of symptoms from lumbar spinal stenosis may include heat/ice therapy, massage therapy, topical pain relievers and over-the-counter medications.

When nonsurgical treatments have failed to manage the symptoms caused by spinal stenosis, various surgical options may be considered.

Signs and symptoms of spinal stenosis can vary. An accurate diagnosis is needed to rule out other potential causes of pain and/or neurological deficits.

Spinal stenosis treatment options include exercise, activity modification, epidural injections, medication and spinal stenosis surgery.

The most common kinds of spine surgery for synovial cysts can be either a decompression alone or a decompression with a spine fusion.

Surgery for central canal stenosis may be performed from the front or the back of the spine and the goal is to decompress the spinal cord.

The symptoms and signs of central canal stenosis may occur anywhere along the body depending on the location of spinal cord compression. Typically, the cervical and lumbar spine are commonly affected.
