Symptoms of Lumbar Spinal Stenosis
Lumbar Spinal Stenosis is a narrowing of the spinal canal in the lower part of the spine that can produce the following symptoms:
• Pain, weakness or numbness affecting the buttocks, calves or legs
• Low back pain that eases when sitting or bending forward
• Burning sensations or tingling in the extremities
• Bladder and bowel problems
• Paraplegia or significant loss of function (very rare)
Lumbar Spinal Stenosis can be caused by general wear and tear on the spine combined with aging and gradual degeneration of the spine. Also, any trauma or other situation that has caused a disc in the spinal cord to bulge can cause joints near the spine to become enlarged and the ligaments near the spine can start to thicken. The thickening of ligaments around the spine can put pressure on the nerves surrounding the spine which will cause pain in the back and possibly pain that radiates down into the lower leg.
Generally, lumbar spinal stenosis affects people who are older, people who have been in accidents, and suffered trauma or people who were born with abnormal spinal canals. An x-ray will help your physician see if you have had any thickening of the ligaments around the spine that may lead to lumbar spinal stenosis. Our board-certified physicians will clearly explain all of your treatment options once your condition has been diagnosed.
