Lumbar spinal stenosis

It is a disorder of the lumbar spine defined as a narrowing of the spinal canal. It may involve the entire lumbar segment or can be localized. It can be congenital (very rare) or degenerative due to the arthrosis of the spine, the latter becoming more and more common, especially in the elderly.

 

In the arthrosis of the spine, there is a bone growth at the facet joints between the vertebrae, an increase in the thickness of the ligaments that join them and a degeneration of the intervertebral disc. All of these together reduce the diameter of the spinal canal where the nerve roots pass and the foramens through which they emerge. This narrowing causes compression of the nerves, low back pain that radiates into the legs, a tingling sensation and a lack of strength in the legs making it very difficult to walk. The first treatment option is the conservative treatment with medications and physical therapy, but if there is no response, an intervention can be performed with a minimally invasive microsurgery in a very short time and with excellent results.
