Thoracic Spinal Stenosis

Thoracic Spinal Stenosis is a condition whereby the bony channel, the thoracic spine, through which the spinal cord runs is narrowed. This could be due to a congenital anomaly (something you were born with), bony overgrowth, ligamentous thickening, disc herniation, or all the aforementioned.

Symptoms of spinal stenosis could be weakness and/or numbness in the legs, difficulties with bowel and/or bladder, and/or imbalance. There is also the possibility of compression by a tumor.
