In brief: Back or Leg Pain

There are two types, one causes back pain and the other leg pain.
Both seem to get worse with standing or walking. Don't assume you have spinal stenosis as other conditions can mimic it. See you doctor and get a firm diagnosis.

In brief: Spinal narrowing

Spinal stenosis is the narrowing of the spinal column that causes pressure on the spinal cord, or narrowing of the openings where spinal nerves leave the spinal column.
It usually occurs as we age & disks become dry & shrink. Also, the bones & ligaments of the spine swell or grow larger due to arthritis or inflammation. Besides pain, numbness and weakness can also occur.
