Lumbar Spinal Stenosis is a cause of low back pain that can produce various symptoms such as Sciatica, back pain, buttock pain, tingling, cramping leg pain and pain on standing and walking. Stenosis means narrowing, and Spinal Stenosis refers to a narrowing of the spaces that surround the nervous tissue in the lower back, most often the spinal cord and the nerve roots that emerge from the spine.
Spinal Stenosis is narrowing of the spinal canal and foramen. This process can be due to a condition that someone is born with (Congenital Spinal Stenosis), or it can be acquired as aging processes affect the lower back (Acquired Spinal Stenosis). Because keeping the lower back ‘flexed' or bent forward relives their symptoms, patients will often walk with a slight stoop forward.
During flare ups of Sciatica and leg pain, anti-inflammatory tablets prescribed by a doctor are very effective at providing pain relief. Heat Packs and a Back Brace can also provide support and back pain relief during painful flare ups.
