Spinal Stenosis

Spinal stenosis is a common condition that occurs when the space around the nerves or spinal cord narrows. This narrowing puts pressure on the spinal cord and/or the spinal nerve roots, often leading to symptoms of pain, tingling, numbness and muscle weakness. The condition usually begins gradually and progresses over time as the narrowing increases. When the narrowing takes place in the lumbar spine, these symptoms are felt in the lower back, buttocks, thighs, legs and feet.
