Spinal osteoarthritis that is accompanied by the overgrowth of bone formation or bone spurs
Flattening of discs due to normal ageing and wear and tear
Spinal injuries, tumors and bone diseases like (Paget Disease) may also lead to Spinal Stenosis

Spinal Stenosis may cause the following symptoms including:
Weakness, pain, tingling or numbness in the arms, legs, trunk or shoulders

If your Lumbar Spine is stenotic, you may feel pain radiating from the low back and into the buttocks and legs
If a nerve root is being pushed on due to the narrowing of space within the spine, you may feel pain radiating to nerve which reduces with sitting

* Discover the body deformities of these Hollywood Stars.
From big screens to magazines, celebrities are presented to us as these flawless creatures with the perfect bodies, the perfect complexion, the perfect life. What most people don’t think about is that before “lights, camera, action,” these stars are required to go through hours of makeup, wardrobe and hair. Even after the cameras are turned off, effects artist cover every blemish and tone every muscle so that their famous canvas looks as unmarred as possible. While the studios and publishers create the illusion of perfection, underneath it all stands a person just like you or me.
Celebs rock everything from extra nipples and digits to noticeable scars. Even Ke$ha told a story of being born with a tail, which she had surgically removed when she was a child. Of course, she’s also openly admitted to the press that she believes her vagina is haunted. But back to the point! No matter who you are or what your profession, no one is perfect. We each have our differences, no matter how noticeable they are, that set us apart and make us unique.
When asked, most stars are not afraid to openly discuss their abnormalities. Music star, Lily Allen, shockingly displayed her third nipple to a Dutch TV audience. Ashton Kutcher stripped off his shoes and socks to show British TV host Jonathan Ross his webbed toes. When the host called his toes “freaky,” Ashton replied, “When everything looks this good, something’s got to be messed up!”
The great thing about the majority of the stars on this video is that they embrace their differences as being a part of who they are. They let their talents speak for themselves and don’t let their imperfections get in the way of what they are truly passionate about. Plus, for the most part, they are willing to poke a little fun at their faults, which makes them even more relatable as a viewer or fan.
You may be surprised to learn that a lot of your favorite stars, who walk the streets of fame have been marked with imperfections either at birth or somewhere along their years of childhood. In this video, we will take a closer look at ten of those celebrities. Here are ten celebrities with physical deformities.
