Cervical Spinal Stenosis wasn’t in my vocabulary before July of 2021. Besides learning as much as I can about it I’m also experiencing it daily. Today is January 24, 2022 and I’m barely walking. I’m most comfortable walking with a walker. A year ago I was comfortable with a cane/walking stick. Three years ago I was walking without any aids. This last year my mobility has decline rapidly. I’m currently searching for a surgeon that believes a procedure could improve my condition.
This Cervical Spinal Stenosis page is focused on providing information about Cervical Spinal Stenosis, Cerebral Palsy and a little about my personal experience. I haven’t found a place that has collected and centralized the information that’s on the internet. I hope to continually add information as I find it so other individuals with Cerebral Palsy can use this website as a resource and/or a place to start.
