Hello! My mom is almost 60 and it is about ten years now since she was diagnosed with spinal stenosis which at first has affected his neck and this spinal stenosis pain was occasional at first it has developed into an chronic condition that has spread from her neck onto her shoulders, arms and arm's fingers causing her even more spinal stenosis pain. For years she is being taking some over-the-counter meds such as aspirin or ibuprofen but they don't seem to help her anymore in reducing this spinal stenosis pain. She has become even depressed for this pain and I am curious now if there is any effective spinal stenosis surgery that could help her with this pain that has become chronic practically? Thanks!

It is more likely that by the years your mother's spine has narrowed that much causing even stronger pressure of the nervous and that is actually the main cause of that spinal stenosis accompanied with pain. Anyway there are few spinal stenosis surgical opt but this would only help reduce spinal stenosis pain but it won’t stop the degenerative nerve process that worsens by aging anyway the usual spinal stenosis surgery is known as decompressive laminectomy-where the lamina is being removed and the lamina is the back part of the bone over the spinal canal-that is how more space for the compressed nerves is made so that is how spinal stenosis pain is to be reduced and usually some small incision is made while performing this surgery though in some case laporascopy may be done instead of this which is much more complicated surgery but also spinal stenosis pain is much more effectively relieved. Also you may count on somewhat prolonged recovery period after having spine surgery and in some cases it may take even months to the full recovery and the period right after the surgery is pretty much painful and plus recovery period also requires long lasting physical therapy. And still though the pain is somewhat released for the nerves are decompressed practically there is no surgery yet that could stop degenerative process and you may even expect the symptoms to return few years after the surgery.
