Abstract

The fastest growing age group in the United States is the 45 and older population. Due to the nature of the aging lumbar spine, a significant majority of this population will experience low back pain (LBP) and symptoms associated with lumbar spinal stenosis. Accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment is required if this particular aging group of our population is to maintain an active and productive life into their later years.
