Lumbar Spinal Stenosis

Understanding and Addressing the Condition

Lumbar spinal stenosis is a condition that can significantly impact one's quality of life. Characterized by the narrowing of the spinal canal in the lower back, it can lead to a range of symptoms, from mild discomfort to severe pain. At Nourish Family Chiropractic in Etobicoke, we are committed to providing information, care, and support for those dealing with this condition.


What is Lumbar Spinal Stenosis?


Lumbar spinal stenosis occurs when the spaces within the spine narrow, which can put pressure on the nerves that travel through the spine. This narrowing is often a result of wear-and-tear changes in the spine related to osteoarthritis. The lumbar region, or the lower back, is a common area affected by spinal stenosis.

Symptoms to Watch For

While some people with lumbar spinal stenosis may not experience symptoms, others might deal with:

  • Pain in the legs or buttocks, especially when standing for long periods or walking.

  • Numbness or tingling in the lower extremities.

  • Weakness in the legs or feet.

  • Back pain, though this is less common than leg pain.
