Spinal stenosis is a condition, commonly found in adults over the age of 50, in which the open spaces within the spine start to narrow. This leads to pressure on the spinal cord and the nerves that that travel through the spine to the arms and legs. Spinal stenosis is most common in the lower back or neck. The most common cause of spinal stenosis comes from wear-and-tear and changes in the spine related to osteoarthritis.
Stiffness, numbness, and back pain are the most common symptoms of spinal stenosis. But, not everyone who has spinal stenosis shows those symptoms or any symptoms. Treatment for minor cases of spinal stenosis can be as simple as common pain medication. For more severe cases, a steroid such as prednisone can be injected into the back or neck, which can help make inflammation go down.
For some who have a strong case of spinal stenosis, like struggling to walk or the inability to control their bladder or bowels, other treatments are also available at the University Pain Medicine Center.
