Spinal stenosis is a condition caused by changes in the shape and size of the spinal canal. This typically occurs because of aging and natural wear and tear.
Common symptoms of spinal stenosis include:
Pain in the legs, buttocks, or groin regions
Increased difficulty walking or standing
Increased relief when sitting or in a flexed position
Numbness, weakness, cramping, or stiffness in the legs or buttock
