The spinal canal is the area your nerves and spinal cord travel through. When this area becomes narrower, it results in your nerves and spinal cord getting pinched and squeezed. This squeezing is known as “compression”. Spinal stenosis may affect the chest (thoracic), neck (cervical), or lower back (lumbar) spines. The area that is most commonly affected by this condition is the lumbar spine followed by the cervical spine.
