What is Spinal Stenosis?
Spinal Stenosis is a common and disabling disorder occurring most commonly after age fifty, but can certainly be present in younger individuals. Spinal Stenosis is a condition which involves a narrowing of the spinal canal and subsequently the spinal cord and the spine nerves. The spinal canal is made from an opening in the back of each vertebra. Twenty four moveable vertebrae align from the skull to the pelvis in such a way that they create a tunnel to house the spinal cord and spinal nerve roots.
