What is spinal stenosis?

Spinal stenosis is the narrowing of the spaces in your spine, which can compress your spinal cord and nerve roots exiting each vertebrae. This may lead to back or neck pain, numbness, tingling or weakness in your arms and legs, and gait problems. This ailment is more common in those over the age of 60, and it tends to worsen with age. Consult a spine specialist for further diagnosis and treatment.
