Lumbar Spine Stenosis is a condition that affects the lower back. It occurs when the spaces within the spine narrow which irritates the nerves in the spinal cord, causing pain, weakness, or numbness, most often in the lower body – buttocks, legs, and feet.
The word ‘stenosis’ comes from Greek, and it means ‘choking.’ When a bone or tissue grows in the openings in the spine, they ‘choke’ the nerves and puts pressure on them. Patients with lumbar stenosis often describe a numbing pain that worsens with walking.
