A narrow canal in the neck is a condition in which the spinal cord or nerve roots are compressed by narrowing of the canal through which the spinal cord or nerve roots pass in the cervical vertebrae.Causes of this condition may include degenerative changes caused by ageing, large-sized hernias, calcification between the vertebrae, and rheumatic changes. The answers to the following questions will provide more information:

1. What are the symptoms of a narrow cervical canal?
Symptoms of cervical stenosis may include neck and neck pain, difficulty using the hands, numbness or weakness in the hands, leg cramps, impaired bladder or bowel function. If the disease progresses, more serious problems such as difficulty walking and dysfunction of the hands may occur.

2. How is neck stenosis diagnosed?The diagnosis of cervical stenosis is usually based on the patient’s symptoms. The patient’s history and clinical examination are important. In addition, narrowing and spinal cord damage can be assessed using imaging methods such as Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI).

3. What are the treatment options for neck narrow canal?Treatment of neck narrow canal may include medical and surgical options. Medication may include muscle relaxants, painkillers and anti-inflammatory drugs. Physiotherapy may also help reduce pain. Surgical treatment may involve widening the narrowed area by approaching from the front or back of the spine, if necessary.

4. What are the expectations after surgical treatment?Patients usually experience a relief of pain and symptoms after surgical treatment. However, rehabilitation and follow-up after surgery are important. Pain and discomfort after surgery may be mild and can be managed with painkillers.
