Neurogenic Claudication

Leg / Arm, Lower Back

Neurogenic or spinal claudication is the impairment in walking caused by the narrowing of the nerve root canal (or spinal stenosis). Neurogenic claudication causes pain, cramping, discomfort, or weakness in the legs during walking. Symptoms are alleviated at rest or when bending forward, such as when using a grocery cart to walk. Neurogenic claudication is most commonly associated with spinal stenosis in the lumbar spine.
