Lumbar canal stenosis

Lumbar canal stenosis is the narrowing of the anterior-posterior and transverse diameters of the spinal canal.

The symptoms are paraesthesia, pain, discomfort, weakness and feelings of heaviness in the legs. The intermittent sensory-motor difficulties in walking are similar to those that result from chronic vascular insufficiencies. These issues can affect one leg, or both and can occur after a prolonged period spent standing up, or even after just a short walk.

During the consultation, doctors will be aware of the rachis’ limited range of motion and will likely request an X-ray if they suspect stenosis is the cause. CT and MRI scans can allow for more precise grading of the stenosis intensity.

The rehabilitation cycle will usually involve last at least 2 months, with 2-3 sessions per week in the gym and swimming pool, accompanied by chiropractic treatments. It is very important to have massages to relax the dorsal-lumbar region, as well as stretching of the posterior chain muscles and core stability exercises.

Surgical treatment must be considered as a backup - the last option when faced with a particularly persistent and disabling case.
