Stretches for Relieving Spinal Stenosis Pain

Has your back doctor in Miami diagnosed you with spinal stenosis? If so, then you may be wondering what you can do to relieve your symptoms. In addition to your recommended treatment plan, performing some specially designed movements may provide you with some relief. Watch this video to learn stretches that can address spinal stenosis pain.

Spinal stenosis causes pain by pressing on the nerves when the spine bends backward. For this reason, stretches which bend the back forward may provide you with relief. To start, lay on your back with your knees bent and your feet flat on the floor. Next, lift 1 leg and pull your knee towards your chest and hold this stretch for about 30 seconds. During this stretch, you may feel some tension but should not feel pain. Then, switch sides and repeat the stretch on the other leg.
