Spinal Stenosis occurs when the small canal in the spinal cord compresses and narrows, subsequently causing pain, numbness or tingling in the neck, lower back or legs. This condition may be the result of a complication from osteoarthritis. However, spinal stenosis may also occur because of a spinal injury, abnormal growth or tumor within the spinal cord, or the thickening of the ligaments.
People over 50 years old are at risk for spinal stenosis. The pain could be disabling and could eventually lead to muscle weakness and loss of leg strength when left unmanaged or treated.
Although spinal stenosis can be very difficult to treat, patients can take some steps to manage to live with it.
