Spinal stenosis term refers to the narrowing of the spinal cord channel. The space reduces due to the bulging of an intervertebral disk. This is the source of the pain found in the neck and lower back. 

The spine is made up of connected bones (or vertebrae) one upon another and shock-absorbing discs. It helps in protecting the spinal cord, an important part of the central nervous system that connects the brain to the body. The cord rests in the canal formed by the vertebrae.

It is possible that the narrowing of the spinal cord channel is a result of changes caused by arthritis. As the spinal canal narrows, the open spaces between your vertebrae start to shrink. The swelling can pinch the spinal cord or the nerves around it, causing pain, tingling, or numbness in your legs, arms, or torso.

While some people may not experience pain, over time, both types of spinal stenosis have common symptoms of muscle weakness, numbness, and tingling.

Like many other disc injuries, spinal stenosis is often age-related from prolonged wear and tear and osteoarthritis.


You can differentiate the two types of degradation in the spinal column based on where it occurs.

The two major types of spinal stenosis include:


While you may have lower back or neck pain, it may not always be spinal stenosis, but another disc-related issue.

The only way to truly know if you have spinal stenosis is through diagnostics such as an MRI or CT scan, and sometimes the patient doesn’t even realize they have it because they have no symptoms. 

If you do have symptoms, they may begin gradually and get worse over time and you may experience the following:

Cervical Stenosis:

Lumbar Stenosis:


Again, aging is one of the leading causes of spinal stenosis, however, some are born with smaller spinal canals that can subject them to spinal stenosis as they mature. Other factors include:


It is important to monitor the progress of your lower back and neck pain, but schedule an appointment if the pain becomes unmanageable and disruptive to your daily activities.

Lifestyle – Spinal stenosis is a result of aging, but you can better quell its effects by living a healthy lifestyle. This includes eating healthy, staying active every day, and limiting alcohol and nicotine use.
