Re: Spinal Stenosis Treatment
Bad luck for your daughter. I have congenital spinal stenosis, too, but I don't think it's all that unusual a condition, unless it's severe. (you could maybe look up "pedicles" and see how their being abnormally short would mean that the canal is too small)
Unfortunately for your daughter, she also has herniated disks. I doubt that there's a cause-effect relationship between the two, but the congenital stenosis does mean that her spinal canal has less room - less leeway, as it were - to keep the herniations from affecting the spinal cord itself.
I suspect that a surgeon would recommend diskectomy and fusion in someone middle-aged or older. Hopefully, being sixteen will provide alternatives, although I'm afraid I can't suggest any.
I would NOT try chiropractic, unless the doc who ordered the MRI says it can't hurt.
Why the wait until October? Is the doc hoping it will get better on its own?
