Neurogenic claudication is a common symptom

Back pain and leg pain occur with standing and walking

Spinal stenosis may be developmental or acquired or a combination of both

An important spinal differential diagnosis is loss of sagittal balance

There are many causes, both medical and orthopaedic, that may contribute to difficulty with walking and poor outcomes from surgical treatment.
