Lumbar Spinal Stenosis
As a result of age, intervertebral discs often become less spongy and smaller in height. The decreased support of these discs can cause the spinal canal to narrow and compress the surrounding nerves, causing pain and weakness in the lower back and legs. The distribution of the symptoms will vary based on the level involved. Lumbar spinal stenosis occurs most frequently in older patients, and can be a result of arthritis. This condition can be treated with medications, steroids or physical therapy. More severe cases may require surgery.
