Many people suffer from chronic back pain of varying degrees of severity. In spinal stenosis, the contents of the spinal canal, mainly the spinal nerves within the sac, are compressed by a variety of pathologies, such as bony overgrowth, disc rupture or long standing degeneration.
When this compression becomes severe enough, it can disturb the function of the nerves, thus causing chronic pain and functional limitations. The lumbar spine is the most common site for stenosis, and can affect lower extremity function, cause chronic severe pain, and can alter lifestyles.
