Buy Lumbar Spinal Stenosis WorksheetLumbar spinal stenosis can press on the spinal cord and the nerves that travel through the spine. Symptoms include pain or cramping in the legs when standing for long periods or when walking.

Lumbar spinal stenosis often happens with age. The discomfort usually eases when bending forward or sitting down. These exercises & stretches should help relieve lumbar spinal stenosis pain.

Start off by stretching your lower back and gluteus muscles. This will help take the pressure off your spine.

Finally, you will do a bird dog progression in quadruped. This helps strengthen the core, and it helps work on general stability.
