In brief: Initial care

Pain clinics can diagnose and offer some nonsurgical treatment options for symptomatic spinal stenosis.
However, for refractory sciatica from severe stenosis, the most effective treatment is surgical decompression by a ortho spine surgeon or neurosurgeon.

In brief: Safe pain management

Spinal stenosis will probably be diagnosed via imaging, like ct or mri.
A pain clinic may help a person safely manage pain through a proper combination of therapies including medications. Pain clinic is especially useful if surgery is not an option for a person. I encourage you to talk with your doctor about your questions. Good luck. Lgromkomd.
