As we age, our bodies experience the natural wear and tear of daily life—something we notice readily in places like the skin or our vision and mobility. The spine is also subject to this process of degeneration; however, it is less noticeable. One of the most common conditions people experience as they age is spinal stenosis.
Symptoms of spinal stenosis include:
- Numbness or tingling radiating in the legs or feet.
- Gradual to sudden clumsiness. A loss of coordination and increased frequency of imbalance can be caused by spinal stenosis.
- Difficulty walking. If you’re having pain radiating to the buttocks or down both legs and is relieved by bending forward or leaning on a shopping cart, you could have spinal stenosis.
The nerve roots and spinal cord are located within this space, and compression can cause the nerves to become pinched. Most commonly, people experience this phenomenon in the neck or low back, and it can lead to pain or numbness in the neck, shoulders, arms, back, legs, and/or calves. Symptoms start slowly and worsen over time. Depending on the severity and the cause of the spinal stenosis, it can usually be treated conservatively without spinal surgery.
