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.
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.
