WHAT IS SPINAL STENOSIS?

Craig Forsthoefel, MD, Illinois Bone & Joint Institute

Tuesday, February 22nd at 7pm

Spinal stenosis is a condition that occurs when the spaces within the spine become narrower, putting pressure on the spinal cord.  A tightened space can cause your spinal cord or nerves to become irritated or compressed. It can also lead to back pain, nerve issues like sciatica, limb numbness, weakness, and pain. Spinal stenosis is most likely to occur in adults over 60. Learn more about the symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment options for spinal stenosis from IBJI’s orthopedic spine surgeon, Dr. Craig Forsthoefel.
