What is Spinal Stenosis?

Spinal stenosis is a condition characterized by the narrowing of the spaces within the spine, leading to compression of the nerves and spinal cord. This can result in a range of symptoms, including pain, numbness, and weakness in the affected areas. The condition can occur in various parts of the spine, including the neck (cervical stenosis) and the lower back (lumbar stenosis). 

Spinal stenosis is often associated with aging and degenerative changes in the spine, but it can also be caused by other factors such as herniated discs, spinal injuries, or congenital conditions. Understanding the causes, symptoms, and preventive measures for spinal stenosis is crucial for managing the condition and improving quality of life for those affected.
