Most commonly occurring in the lower back, spinal stenosis can put pressure on your spinal cord and the nerves that travel through your cervical and lumbar spine affecting your arms and legs. Respectively, this may cause extreme pain in some patients and little to none in others.

Spinal stenosis in the cervical area can have devastating effects on a patient quality of life and affects the spinal cord as well as the nerves. Spinal stenosis is mostly caused by the wear and tear caused by osteoarthritis.
