What is Lumbar Stenosis?
Lumbar stenosis refers to the narrowing of spaces within the spinal canal, which houses the spinal cord and nerve roots. When this space diminishes, it can lead to compression, irritation, or pinching of the spinal cord and nerves, resulting in issues like back pain. Various conditions and injuries can contribute to the development of a narrowed spinal canal, and although lumbar stenosis can affect anyone, it is more prevalent among individuals aged 50 and older. It most commonly impacts the lower back, involving the five lumbar vertebrae (L1 to L5).
