David Wright fights spinal stenosis all the way to the World Series

By August 13th, 2021No Comments

If you watched the World Series, you may have heard the commentators talk about David Wright’s battle with spinal stenosis, which is a narrowing of the spinal column.  Wright, a homegrown superstar from Hickory High in Chesapeake, and the New York Mets’ team captain, was diagnosed with the condition earlier this year.

For months Wright underwent intense rehab and missed most of the season, but he returned to the field in late August and has helped the Mets reach the World Series.

While some physicians may have recommended surgery for Wrights’ spinal stenosis, Wright chose rehab and physical therapy and it looks like he made the right decision.

At our non-surgical spine center we treat many patients with spinal stenosis and help them return to their normal routines – WITHOUT surgery.  I applaud David Wright for having the determination and patience to choose a well-developed rehab program to overcome this condition.  Go David!!!

Symptoms of spinal stenosis include:

  • Numbness, tingling, cramping, or pain in the back, buttocks, thighs, or calves, or in the neck, shoulders, or arms
  • Weakness of a portion of a leg or arm
