Our Approach to Treating

Spinal Stenosis in Adults

Specialists at NYU Langone’s Spine Center and Rusk Rehabilitation have the experience and training to diagnose and treat spinal stenosis. This condition causes back or neck pain and other symptoms due to a narrowing of the spinal canal. Spinal stenosis often occurs as a result of changes in the spine related to aging, but other conditions can cause this constriction, as well.

Our specialists diagnose and treat spinal stenosis, a condition that causes back or neck pain due to compression of the spinal canal.

Our specialists in neurology, neurosurgery, orthopedic surgery, physiatry, and radiology collaborate to diagnose the cause of spinal stenosis. This multidisciplinary approach ensures that every diagnostic angle is explored and that the cause of your symptoms is identified quickly. Working closely with specialists in rehabilitation and pain management, our doctors create a treatment plan tailored to your diagnosis and designed to relieve pain and help you remain active.

Treatment for Spinal Stenosis in Adults

Spine specialists at NYU Langone offer medication, physical therapy, and therapeutic injections to relieve pain due to spinal stenosis. If your symptoms don’t respond to nonsurgical treatment, or if symptoms interfere with your ability to perform everyday tasks, our doctors can determine whether spine surgery can help you.
