Disease States

What is Spinal Stenosis?
Spinal Stenosis is the narrowing of spaces in the spine (backbone) that can result in pressure on the spinal cord and/or nerve roots. Pressure on the lower part of the spinal cord or on nerve roots branching out from that area may give rise to pain or numbness in the back or legs.

What causes Spinal Stenosis?
The normal vertebral canal provides adequate room for the spinal cord and nerve roots. Narrowing of the canal, which occurs in spinal stenosis, may be inherited or acquired.
