Nearly half of Americans aged 60 years and older suffer from “spinal stenosis” This narrowing of the spaces between the spine’s vertebrae is a common cause of back pain. As the bones of the spinal column undergo degenerative changes (such as osteoarthritis), bony overgrowths appear, ligaments harden, discs shrink and distort, and joints break down. as a consequence of these changes, the canals in the spine, through which the spinal cord runs and from which the nerves exit, narrow. When stenosis occurs in the lower (lumbar) spine, cramping may be felt in the legs and weakness in the extremities is possible. To relieve pressure on compressed nerves, chiropractic treatment may focus on aligning misplaced vertebrae and restoring joint integrity.
