Buy Cervical Vertigo WorksheetSpinal Stenosis can cause pain, numbness, muscle weakness, and other issues. Here are some seated stretches and exercises that can help.

What is Spinal Stenosis? It’s basically when the space where the nerves come out of the spine start to narrow. This can put pressure on the spinal cord and the peripheral nerves that go out to the body. The pressure on the nerves can cause the pain and numbness mentioned earlier. These stretches and exercises might help for the low back area.

A seated pelvic tilt is a great exercise and a stretch. It does a great job of loosening up the area and warming up the muscles.

A seated rolldown and a seated trunk rotation help stretch the spine in different directions to help open up the spaces in the spine.

Finally, a seated hip flexor stretch and seated figure 4 stretch help relax the muscles in the hip and pelvic area that might be putting pressure on the spine. Getting these areas more flexible should help relieve the pain.
