Lumbar stenosis refers to a narrowing of the spinal canal in the lower back which can cause compression of the spinal cord or nerve roots exiting the spine. It is typically caused by degeneration or “wear and tear” of the structures of your spine as you age. Physical therapy intervention can help reduce pain and symptoms but some of the more severe cases may require surgical intervention.
Common symptoms of spinal stenosis include: lower back pain, pain in one or both legs, weakness, numbness or tingling into the hips or down the legs. You may have difficulty walking longer distances. Leaning or bending forward may take some pressure off your back, decreasing symptoms.
