On average there are over 100,000 injuries a year from skiing alone with snowboarding adding another 80,000. Those lovely ice skating rinks popping up all over New York City, gracing Bryant Park and Central Park with their presence, they account for upwards of almost 50,000 winter injuries.

Spinal Stenosis might sound like fun and games, but it definitely isn't something you want to sign up for. Spinal Stenosis is the compression of the spinal cord. The smooth line of the spine gradually narrows until the nerves and vertebrae are pinched, resulting in back pain, legs, arms, neck, and even hands. Where your body feels pain from your spinal compression depends on where in your body the compression is occurring.
