Living with spinal stenosis can be a struggle, especially if you frequently experience back pain and discomfort that prevent you from walking and doing your usual activities. When you have spinal stenosis, the spaces within your backbone that house the spinal cord become compressed and narrow, thus putting pressure on the nerve roots that run through your spinal cord.
According to experts in pain management, Aventura, a lot of factors can cause the development of spinal stenosis. However, if you suffer from conditions like scoliosis, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, Paget's disease, spondylolisthesis, trauma, and spinal tumors then you have a higher risk for developing the condition.
As you age, you are even more predisposed to having spinal stenosis complications since 1 in 1000 people above 65 years old and 5 in every 1000 people above 50 years old have symptoms of this condition, according to the Spine Journal.
