In brief: Decompression
Posterior decompression laminectomy facetectomy foramenotomy other names removal of constrictive bone ligament surgically or epidural steroid injections can provide diagnostic clarity and probably temporary relief.

Non-surgical treatment options (in addition to image guided lumbar injections) include TENS/NMES, therapy, coanalgesic medications. However, all of these are palliative and not curative of the underlying structural problem causing the pain/dysfunction

In brief: Surgery
For patients that have failed appropriate conservative care, surgery can be very beneficial.
A thorough work up is required. The most common surgical treatment is a laminectomy. The success rate is good. Check out spinehealth .Com.

In brief: Depends
Surgical if it's really bad & the patient can withstand the surgery.
If the stenosis is not severe, medical management.
