What is lumbar spinal stenosis?

Where is the spinal canal? The spine is composed of vertebral bodies with foramina, which are stacked together to form the spinal canal. Lumbar spinal stenosis is caused by bone or fibrous tissue hypertrophy, thickening, and shortening of the sagittal diameter of the spinal canal or nerve root canal due to various reasons, resulting in mechanical compression of the spinal cord nerves and a series of lumbar and leg pain and neurological symptoms, known as lumbar spinal stenosis.

It is mainly divided into two categories: congenital lumbar spinal stenosis, also known as developmental lumbar spinal stenosis, which is caused by congenital developmental abnormalities. The second category is acquired lumbar spinal stenosis, which is mainly caused by spinal degeneration and aging with age.

Lumbar spinal stenosis is one of the common causes of significant mobility impairment in elderly people. It mainly manifests as lumbar and leg pain and intermittent claudication of the lower limbs, severely affecting the quality of life of patients.
