Stenosis: Stenosis can occur at any level of the spinal cord. The symptoms produced depend upon the level of the stenosis from the bottom to the top of the spine and can basically involve any area of the body. Stenosis can be demonstrated by correlation of symptoms, a good imaging study, clinical exam and electrodiagnostic testing.
