Causes of Spinal Stenosis?

1.The most common cause of spinal stenosis is aging, although not everyone develops this condition as they grow old. People whose age is 50 years old are more susceptible to developing spinal stenosis than others. If a relative in your family has history of back pain or any other back problem, they have a high risk of back pain due to genetic symptoms.

2.Heavy laborers, who overload their backs also are at a greater risk than those with a more sedentary lifestyle.

3.Another common cause of lateral stenosis is soft and bone tissue changed because of aging, also known as degenerative arthritis
