Information on spinal stenosis

Spinal stenosis is a spine condition that describes the narrowing of nerve passages in the spinal column. This is a degenerative condition that often develops in people over the age of 50 due to the natural aging process of the spine. Sometimes, spinal stenosis can be caused from other spine conditions, such as bulging discs or bone spurs, which protrude into the spinal canal and narrow the space in between the walls of the spinal canal and the spine. As the walls of the spinal canal narrow, the spinal cord or a nerve root may become compressed by a bulging disc or joint in the spine, resulting in chronic and radiating pain in the back and extremities.

If this condition is affecting you and you are researching spinal stenosis and the treatment options available to you, we encourage you to read through our library of information about spinal stenosis.
