- This injury is degenerative and occurs when space around the spinal cord narrows. This narrowing puts extra pressure on the spinal cords and surround nerves, making the person feel pain down the back. Causes for this condition are mostly getting older, however, particular motions can also progress its onset. This pain may be stronger in the spot where the narrowing occurs, but may also radiate down the back.
By stretching the back and strengthening the muscles, physical therapy will lessen the pain.
