Lumbar Stenosis Overview:

  • Lumbar stenosis is a condition where the spinal canal narrows, putting pressure on the spinal cord and nerves in the lumbar (lower) spine.


Causes of Lumbar Stenosis:

  • Aging:

    • Degenerative changes, such as thickening of ligaments and bone spurs.

  • Herniated Discs:

    • Disc material bulges and compresses the spinal canal.

  • Congenital Factors:

    • Abnormalities present at birth that affect spinal canal size.

  • Tumors or Injuries:

    • Abnormal growths or trauma leading to spinal canal compression.


Signs and Symptoms:

  • Low Back Pain:

    • Often worsened with activity.

  • Leg Pain (Claudication):

    • Pain, cramping, or weakness in the legs during walking or standing.

  • Numbness and Tingling:

    • In the buttocks, thighs, or calves.

  • Difficulty Walking:

    • Impaired balance and coordination.


Diagnosis and Evaluation:

  • Clinical Examination:

    • Assessment of symptoms, physical function, and neurological signs.

  • Imaging Studies:

    • X-rays, MRI, or CT scans to visualize the degree of stenosis and assess spinal stability.


Treatment Approaches:

  • Conservative Measures:

    • Physical therapy and exercises to improve core strength and flexibility.

    • Medications for pain management.

    • Lifestyle modifications, including ergonomic adjustments.

  • Interventional Procedures:

    • Epidural steroid injections for pain relief.

    • Facet joint injections to alleviate inflammation.

    • Physical therapy for targeted rehabilitation.

  • Surgical Options:

    • Reserved for severe cases or when conservative measures are ineffective.

    • Procedures may include laminectomy or spinal fusion.
