What is Spinal Stenosis?

Spinal Stenosis is a narrowing of the canal of the spine that can cause pressure to be placed on the spinal cord and nerves of the spine. In a healthy spinal column, nerve roots leave the spine via nerve root canals unrestricted. Spinal stenosis occurs when bone and soft tissues begin to grow over top of the vertebrae and end up covering the nerve root canals.

There most common types of spinal stenosis are Lumbar Spinal Stenosis and Cervical Spinal Stenosis. Lumbar Spinal Stenosis is more common while Cervical Spinal Stenosis is more dangerous.

The most common cause of Spinal Stenosis is natural wear and tear due to the aging process in which ligaments may thicken, herniated discs or bulging discs may occur and cysts may form. Arthritis and spinal injuries are also seen as causes for Spinal Stenosis.
