Arthritis, narrow spinal canal, injury to spine, spinal tumor and certain, post-surgery of spine and bone diseases are the most common causes of lumbar stenosis.
Dr. Jose Mena, Interventional Spine Specialist with Miami Orthopedics & Sports Medicine Institute, affirms arthritis is the most common cause of lumbar spinal stenosis. The second is congenital spinal stenosis, when people were born with the canal a little tighter.
His advice for people who are suffering back pain is staying active and seeking care quickly.
