Spinal stenosis is a medical condition in which the spinal canal, which is the passageway for the spinal cord and nerve roots, narrows and compresses the spinal cord and nerves.
This compression can cause pain, numbness, weakness, and other symptoms in the back, legs, and arms. Spinal stenosis can occur in any part of the spine, but it most commonly occurs in the lower back or neck.
It's important to speak to a specialist if you experience symptoms of spinal stenosis. Early diagnosis and treatment can help manage symptoms and prevent further damage.
Spinal stenosis can cause pain in several places depending on the location of where the spinal canal has narrowed including your neck, arms, lower back and legs.
Symptoms of spinal stenosis often include pain, numbness, and weakness in the affected area.
Spinal stenosis can affect people of all ages, but it's more common in older adults and can be caused by factors such as age, genetics, trauma, arthritis, tumors, and other conditions.
"Spinal stenosis can be a very painful and debilitating condition, and it's important to seek medical attention if you are experiencing symptoms. While some cases of spinal stenosis can be managed with conservative treatments, such as physical therapy or medication, other cases may require specialist treatment, such as surgery. At Legent, we can help you find the right treatment that works for you.”
