Lumbar Spinal Stenosis

Spinal stenosis involves encroachment upon the spinal cord. Disorders that have been known to cause this condition: Disc herniations/bulges, advanced osteoarthritis and spinal cord masses/tumors. Spinal stenosis when left untreated can cause severe disorders to the lower extremities (Radiculopathy) and symptoms distal or below the encroachment.
