Spinal Stenosis Therapy

back surgery recovery patient

Pictured here:  This man had back surgery for spinal stenosis.  He comes to us three days a week for a total of about five hours to work on balance and agility.  He still lives alone, and still does his own yard work.  He also runs a soup kitchen most every weekend of the year.

Spinal stenosis is the narrowing of the open spaces within the spine.  This puts pressure on the spinal cord and the nerves that travel back through the spine.  It most often occurs in the neck and lower back.

Our Approach

In spinal stenosis therapy, we strengthen weak muscles in the neck and back. We also address the muscles in the lower back, hips, buttocks, lower legs, and feet. This helps build balance and stability.

The earlier we start spinal stenosis treatment, and the more aggressive we are, the better. Frequent activity and exercise can slow the progress of the disease. The more active you are, the more likely you are to live independently.

We use RedCord therapy to work with the deep core muscles of the back and neck, called the multifidus. We have helped patients remain active and stay in their homes for years after the onset of the disease. Call us – we can help.
