NECK INJURIES – SPINAL STENOSIS – EXPLAINED


  • MAYO CLINIC . Spinal stenosis is a narrowing of the spaces within your spine, which can put pressure on the nerves that travel through the spine. It occurs most often in the lower back and the neck. Some people with spinal stenosis may not have symptoms. Spinal stenosis is most commonly caused by wear-and-tear changes in the spine related to osteoarthritis.
  • HOPKINS MEDICINE . Your spinal cord is a bundle of nerves that runs through a tunnel formed by your vertebrae. The tunnel is called the spinal canal. Lumbar spinal stenosis is a narrowing of the spinal canal in the lower part of your back. Stenosis, which means narrowing, can cause pressure on your spinal cord.
  • SPINE-HEALTH . Spinal stenosis occurs when one or more bony openings (foramina) within the spine begin to narrow and reduce space for the nerves. This process can occur within the spinal canal (where the spinal cord runs down the center) and/or in the intervertebral foramina where spinal nerves exit the spinal canal. Depending on the location and how much narrowing occurs over time, a spinal nerve or the spinal cord could become compressed and cause pain, tingling, numbness, and/or weakness.
