What are the two types of spinal stenosis?

The two main types of spinal stenosis are:

  • Cervical stenosis. In this condition, the narrowing occurs in the part of the spine in your neck.
  • Lumbar stenosis. In this condition, the narrowing occurs in the part of the spine in your lower back. It’s the most common form of spinal stenosis.

What are the different levels of spinal stenosis?

There are three main types: central spinal stenosis, lateral recess stenosis, and foraminal stenosis, each of which can happen in any region of the spine (i.e. cervical, thoracic, or lumbar).

Is canal stenosis the same as spinal stenosis?

Spinal stenosis is the narrowing of one or more bony openings (foramina) in the vertebrae of the spine. When spinal stenosis occurs in the spinal canal, it is called central canal stenosis and may cause compression of the spinal cord.

What is the difference between spinal stenosis and lumbar stenosis?

Spinal stenosis refers to the narrowing of the spinal column, which contains the spinal nerves. Cervical spinal stenosis occurs in the neck, causing arm, shoulder, and hand pain, while lumbar spinal stenosis affects the lower back and can cause symptoms in the legs, feet, and buttocks.

Why are paramagnets not magnetized in the absence of a magnetic field?

Paramagnetic properties are due to the realignment of the electron paths caused by the external magnetic field. Paramagnets do not retain any magnetization in the absence of an externally applied magnetic field, because thermal motion randomizes the spin orientations.

Which is stronger diamagnetism or paramagnetic electron spin?

Paramagnetism is stronger than diamagnetism but weaker than ferromagnetism. Unlike ferromagnetism, paramagnetism does not persist once the external magnetic field is removed because thermal motion randomizes the ​ electron spin orientations. The strength of paramagnetism is proportional to the strength of the applied magnetic field.

What’s the difference between spinal stenosis and lumbar stenosis?

Spinal stenosis refers to the narrowing of the spinal column, which contains the spinal nerves. Cervical spinal stenosis occurs in the neck, causing arm, shoulder, and hand pain, while lumbar spinal stenosis affects the lower back and can cause symptoms in the legs, feet, and buttocks.

What are the symptoms of spinal stenosis in the neck?

Spinal stenosis is a narrowing of the spaces within your spine, which can put pressure on the nerves that travel through the spine. Spinal stenosis occurs most often in the lower back and the neck. Some people with spinal stenosis may not have symptoms. Others may experience pain, tingling, numbness and muscle weakness.
