Abstract: Lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) is a prevalent condition in the elderly population, which leads changes in the neuromuscular system and causes gait disturbances and abnormalities. Diagnosis was based on confirmation of anatomical stenosis on MRI and review of patient neurogenic intermittent claudication history. Gait analysis is increasingly being used to characterize dysfunction of the neuromuscular and orthopedic diseases, however, its application in LSS has not got enough attention. This systematic review has described the application of the gait analysis in LSS, aims to provide a comprehensive understanding and method of gait analysis in LSS patients, as well as summarizing the etiology of the abnormalities, the clinical value of the gait analysis and its future application foresight.
