There are usually small spaces in the spine. When these spaces narrow Spinal Stenosis can occur. It causes pressure on your spinal cord and nerves. This condition is known to occur in the lower back or your neck. It is a common condition in patients over the age of 50. However, it is not to say that younger patients do not experience this medical condition as well.
Spinal Stenosis has no symptoms; however, depending on the severity of the pressure placed on your spine patients may experience numbness, pain and weakness. And in some cases it can lead to bladder and bowel problems.
What causes Spinal Stenosis?
This condition can occur through aging. It is a natural process of growing older. After decades of normal wear, where pressure is applied to the spine, the spine can become compressed. Other common causes are related spine conditions, injury or accident.
What about younger patients?
If you are below 50 years and diagnosed with Spinal Stenosis, it can mean you had a congenital birth defect which resulted in a small spinal canal.
