Spinal stenosis is a narrowing of the canal/gap where the nerves exit the spine, which can cause pressure on your spinal cord or the nerves that go from your spinal cord to your muscles.
Spinal stenosis can happen in any part of your spine but is most common in the lower back followed by the neck and is most commonly found in people over the age of 50.
Spinal stenosis can be caused by several factors but is most commonly caused by the wear and tear that goes with aging, as the intervertebral discs can degenerate and protrude backwards causing increased pressure on the gaps/canal causing them to become narrower.
Degeneration occurs most frequently at the L5-S1 vertebrae (where the spine meets the sacrum) because of its extensive load bearing nature. This can therefore cause irritation of the sciatic nerve, causing sciatica like symptoms.
