Spinal stenosis mainly affects middle-aged or elderly people. It may be caused by osteoarthritis or herniation of the disc or by an accident injury that causes pressure on the nerve roots or the spinal cord itself.



Spinal stenosis is a narrowing of the lumbar or cervical spinal canal. The narrowing can cause compression on nerve roots resulting in pain or weakness of the legs. Medications or steroid injections are often administered to reduce inflammation. If the pain is persistent and does not respond to these conservative measures, surgery is considered to relieve the pressure on the nerves.

Spinal stenosis is narrowing of the spinal canal. This can develop as you age from drying out and shrinking of the disk spaces. If this happens, even a minor injury can cause inflammation of the disk and put pressure on the nerve. It can also be caused by osteoarthritis and pressure on the nerve no matter which chronic condition is the cause can result in you feeling pain anywhere along your back and/or legs that the nerve supplies.

Some of the most common spinal stenosis symptoms are:

  • Back pain that spreads to the legs
  • Difficulty or imbalance when walking
  • Leg pain
  • Neck pain
  • Numbness in the buttocks, thighs, or calves that is worse with standing, walking, or exercise
  • Pain in the buttocks, thighs, or calves that is worse with walking or exercise
  • Weakness of the legs

There are many treatments available for spinal stenosis patients, depending upon the cause and other factors, but a conservative approach is generally encouraged involving medication, a variety of therapies and continued monitoring with adjustments made whenever necessary.
