In brief: Spinal Stenosis

Ddd/djd/muscle spasm/bulging discs/bone spurs/stenosis are non-specific diagnoses & may or may not cause pain.
More effective treatment plan may be mapped out if the specific pain generators can be identified. In advanced cases w/ stenosis, pt may not be effective & meds can create a viscous cycle. Concurrent consultation and collaboration with a spine surgeon & pain management is advised.
