It depends where the stenosis is, and how severe it is. A detailed diagnosis is a really good investment for your health! You can take it straight to a physical therapist, and ask your PT to prescribe strength training for specific muscle groups, plus a general program to recondition you. That way you have a program that works for the long haul.

Hope this helps.

Cheering you on!

Exercises to improve balance, increase flexibility and stability of the spine and increase overall strength are also often part of a comprehensive treatment program. Has your doctor provided any suggestions? You might want to ask if they can refer you to see a physical therapist who can design a set of exercises specific to your needs.

I'm looking for exercises that won't make my pain worse from Spinal stinosis yet get enough results to lose weight/get fit.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated. I am currently doing chair exercise cardio and resistance band videos on SparkPeople and Treadmill so far. I'm looking for new things to try.
