Spinal Stenosis


The spinal stenosis program is a six-week program consisting of manual treatment, education, specific exercises and instruction on self-management techniques to reduce compression to the spinal nerves when standing and walking.

Degenerative lumbar spinal stenosis is caused by osteoarthritis---a wear and tear type of arthritis that causes narrowing (stenosis) of the spinal canals where the nerves travel through to the back and the legs. These nerves become compressed and can lead to pain, numbness, and weakness of the back and legs and can impact the ability to stand and walk. Degenerative lumbar spinal stenosis is a leading cause of pain, disability, and loss of independence in people over the age of 65.

Spinal stenosis helps treat:

  • Back pain
  • Pain numbness
  • Tingling
  • Weakness
  • Heaviness of the legs when standing and walking
