Innovative Treatment for Myelopathy

Myelopathy is caused by severe compression of the spinal cord.

This can happen because of age, spinal stenosis, infections or injury – and in some cases, people are born with the condition. Myelopathy can be painful and can cause numbness, tingling, weakness  and even incontinence. 

Surgery is the most recommended treatment for myelopathy.
