A narrowing of the central vertebral canal that houses the spinal cord is known as spinal stenosis. Disease and injury including bone spurs, herniated or bulging disc and osteoarthritis can lead to the development of the condition. Generally significant discomfort and debilitating pain accompany canal stenosis, although some individuals may not experience these. Symptoms are exhibited in the neck, back, arms, hips and legs and may include numbness, tingling and weakness spreading out to other parts of the body.
