Most of us know that our spine supports our upper body and helps it to move around freely, even twist and turn. It consists of a number of bones. As such, our spine is divided into several parts, each with a function to support our body. Through the spaces between the bones on our spine, run the spinal nerves. These nerves are responsible for transmitting signals from the brain to the rest of our body such as pain, rest, walking, jumping, and other sensations.
As we age, the space between our spine starts to get narrow because of the wear and tear of the bones. This results in less space for the spinal nerves to pass through the spinal canal and hence puts pressure on the spinal nerve roots, resulting in its malfunctioning. Not only does it cause back pain, but our body also gets incorrect signals or no signals at all from the brain. For instance, we do not feel pain even when something is hurting us or we feel a lot of pain even when nothing is bothering us.
Some of the other symptoms of Spinal Stenosis include:
- Mild or chronic back pain that gets better when you lead forward
- Weakness in your arms and legs
- Tingling kind of feeling in your arms and legs
- Numbness or cramping in buttocks and legs
- Severe pain in only one side of your leg
Other than age-related cause, the reasons for this condition also include:
- Spinal injuries
- Thickened ligaments along the spine
- Herniated discs
- Bone overgrowth from Paget’s disease
