Stenosis

By Dr. Clifford Yun, PT, DPT

 

There are spaces in the vertebra that the spinal roots come out of. The center of the spine where the spinal cord runs through is called the vertebral foramen. Space, where the roots come out of, are called the transverse foramen. With aging, the foramen close and we begin to get a pinching on the spinal cord and spinal root nerves. This too can produce radicular symptoms to the lower back and the legs. (Image below is from www.back.com
