The spinal column contains open spaces that create passageways for the spinal cord and the spinal nerves. Spinal stenosis is a narrowing of (or an intrusion into) these openings. This can cause a compression of the nerves. Spinal stenosis most commonly affects the cervical and lumbar regions of the spine.

Recovery time for spinal stenosis surgery can vary depending on the severity of the condition and the type of surgery performed. Some patients may be able to return to normal activities within a few weeks, while others may need several months to fully recover. Your doctor can give you a better idea of what your recovery time may look like based on your individual situation.
