Spinal Stenosis

Spinal stenosis is a narrowing of spaces in the spine that results in pressure on the spinal cord and/or nerve roots that travel through the spine.

Spinal stenosis occurs most often in the neck and lower back. However, approximately 75% of cases of spinal stenosis occur in the lumbar spine (lower back). Pressure on the lower part of the spinal cord or on nerve roots branching out from that area may cause pain or numbness in the legs. Pressure on the upper part of the spinal cord, that is the neck area, may produce similar symptoms in the shoulders or even the legs. Spinal stenosis is most common in men and women over 50 years of age
