Not Necessarily: Cervical stenosis, or narrowing of the canal that the spinal cord passes through in the neck, causes many different symptoms and if left untreated can lead to paralysis in some cases.

Different types: Cervical stenosis can cause neck and arm pain. In more severe cases, it may compress the spinal cord enough to produce legs and bowel/bladder problems. Surgery, if required, can be performed from the front of the neck (anterior approach) or from the back (posterior). It may require a fusion, where bone is placed to fuse several vertebra together. Your neurosurgeon can explain the risks of either. ...Read more
