Defining Spinal Stenosis & Symptoms Experienced by Patients
Spinal stenosis can be defined as the result of aging and "wear and tear" on the spine from everyday activities. Specifically, it is a narrowing of the spinal canal that can occur from the thickening of the ligaments, bulging of discs, or overgrowth of bone. When any of these occur, the spinal sac and nerve fibers that exit the spinal canal become crowded and pinched. The results from this narrowing of the spinal canal are pain, numbness, tingling, and/or weakness in the back and legs that can be especially noted while walking.
