Lumbar Spinal Stenosis: Diagnosis And Management London Spine Lumbar Stenosis

The article discusses lumbar spinal stenosis, a condition that affects over 200,000 people in the United States each year, with a mean age of 64 years. This degenerative condition of the spine leads to narrowing around the neurovascular bundles, causing chronic low back pain that can radiate to the buttocks and lower extremities bilaterally. It is a progressive process that worsens with standing and walking, but improves with bending forward or sitting. Magnetic resonance imaging is recommended for diagnosis, and treatment options include physical therapy, exercise programs, spinal injections, chiropractic treatment, acupuncture, and lifestyle modifications. Surgery may be considered if nonsurgical options are not effective. However, there is limited high-quality evidence supporting the effectiveness of these treatments

Abstract

Lumbar spinal stenosis is a clinical syndrome that affects more than 200,000 people in the United States annually. It is a common cause of chronic insidious low back pain, especially in older patient populations (mean age = 64 years). Lumbar spinal stenosis is a degenerative condition of the spine leading to narrowing in the spaces around the neurovascular bundles and the classic symptom of low back pain that radiates to the buttocks and lower extremities bilaterally. It is typically a progressive waxing and waning process that may deteriorate over years. The pain is typically burning or cramping, which worsens with standing and walking and improves with bending forward or sitting. Magnetic resonance imaging is the recommended diagnostic test because it allows cross-sectional measurement of the spinal canal. Options for nonsurgical management include physical therapy, exercise programs, spinal injections with and without corticosteroids, chiropractic treatment, osteopathic manipulation, acupuncture, and lifestyle modifications; however, few of these treatments have high-quality randomized trials demonstrating effectiveness. Surgery may be considered if nonsurgical management is ineffective.
