TOMS RIVER, NJ, January 26, 2009 – Lumbar

middle-aged and elderly populations, and results from the narrowing
in the lumbar spinal canal that carries nerves to the legs.
The most common cause of LSS is degenerative arthritis, which
commonly occurs in the spine as part of the natural aging process.
Other causes can include tumors, infection and other bone disorders.

Medical Center, will present a free lecture, “Treating Lumbar
Spinal Stenosis,” on Wednesday, February 25 at 2:30 p.m.

and symptoms, as well as discuss a minimally invasive procedure,
