Home Management for Spinal Stenosis

Your PT will follow your MD’s recovery protocol for spinal stenosis. Proper postural awareness and core stability will also be of extreme importance to your recovery. Slouching and forward rounding of the shoulders and pelvis needs to be avoided along with poor lifting mechanics.

Application of ice packs or heat may also be suggested to help manage chronic or acute pain and inflammation at home.

PT for Spinal Stenosis

Spinal stenosis can often be managed through physical therapy without the need for surgical intervention. If you require surgery, upon your initial evaluation at Elite Physical therapy, your physical therapist will educate you on your physician’s protocol for recovery.

Following your evaluation, your physical therapy team will develop and guide you through an individualized exercise program.
