A stenosis is a narrowing, in this case in the spinal cord. A narrowing of the spinal cord mainly occurs in people older than 50 years.
A canal stenosis is a constriction in the spinal cord. There is an opening in the spinal cord, alongside the spinal cord can be seen from above. The opening is also called vertebral foramen. In the opening there are all kinds of nerves, from top to bottom through the entire vertebral foramen. These nerves are protected by the spinal cord. When there is a canal stenosis, the opening (vertebral foramen) of the spinal canal becomes smaller and smaller. The nerves get trapped by this, which can cause irritation.
Age is the most common cause of stenosis. It develops gradually but can also be congenital, they are often born with narrow or small vertebral foramen. Osteoarthritis or thickening of the spinal cord can occur through age. This will cause the vertebral foramen to narrow and there is not enough space for the nerves that walk through it.
Also infections, tumors or broken vertebrae can later give rise to the development of narrowing of the spinal canal.
When the symptoms gradually arise due to age or osteoarthritis, it is recommended to treat the spine conservatively. It is important to adjust the posture of the body. Complaints and pain in the spine should in any case be avoided as much as possible. Long walks and long standing will be discouraged.
The posture of the back is very important. It is important that the posture of the back is good. Postural advice can be important here.
Wearing a corset or brace can also provide support with stability of the posture.
