What is lumbar stenosis?

Lumbar stenosis is a medical condition that occurs when the spinal canal, which houses and protects the spinal cord, becomes narrowed. The narrowing of the space puts pressure on the nerves in the spine and can cause pain in the lower back or legs. This condition often occurs as people age due to the degeneration of spinal discs and bones or the formation of bone spurs.

What are the symptoms of lumbar stenosis?

Symptoms of lumbar stenosis typically include pain in the lower back and/or legs while standing or walking, but may also be caused by prolonged sitting or lying down. The pain often radiates through the buttocks and can worsen with repetitive motion. Other common symptoms include decreased sensation or numbness of the legs and feet, as well as problems with maintaining one’s balance while walking. In extreme cases, complete paralysis of the lower limbs may occur due to pressure on the nerves running through this area of the body. If you experience any of these symptoms it is important to speak with your doctor immediately for further evaluation and treatment.

What are the treatments for lumbar stenosis?

Treatment for lumbar stenosis varies depending on the severity and cause of the condition, but can include chiropractic care, physiotherapy, anti-inflammatory medications, injections or massage therapy. A chiropractor may recommend manual spinal manipulation to improve posture and range of motion while physiotherapy focuses on strengthening core muscles to reduce strain. Massage therapy is beneficial in loosening tight muscles surrounding the spine and loosening joint restrictions.
