Health in Focus: Lumbar Stenosis
Board-certified neurosurgeon Dr. Jay Jagannathan, with Jagannathan Neurosurgery, says this kind of ailment is called lumbar stenosis.
Symptoms can include shooting pain down the legs, numbness and tingling, or back pain.
“Stenosis just means narrowing around the spinal canal or around the nerves and lumbar stenosis is, as the name implies, narrowing around the nerves that travel out of the lower back, which is the lumbar spine,” Jagannathan says.
