A Spine Expert Describes Spinal Stenosis Symptoms

Dr. Jeffrey Wang, an orthopaedic surgeon and Chief of the UCLA Spine Service, explains the typical symptoms of spinal stenosis.

Pain that comes and goes depending on your position is the most recognizable symptom of spinal stenosis.  Typically, you’ll have pain while walking, especially while walking uphill.  When you stop, sit down, or bend over, your pain lessens.

Dr. Wang also talks about other possible symptoms, including sciatica.  That’s a specific leg pain that travels from your low back and down one leg.
