Narrowing of the spinal canal in the lower part of the spine is called Lumbar stenosis. This narrowing can put pressure on the spinal cord and nerves. This could be congenital at times however mostly it is the result of aging and wear and tear on the spine. The symptoms of lumbar spinal stenosis include:
- Low back pain that eases when bending forward or sitting.
- Pain, weakness, or numbness in the legs, calves or buttocks.
- Burning sensations, tingling, and pins and needles in lower extremity like legs
- Bladder and bowel problems
