Spinal Stenosis Pain Relief in the St Louis
Spinal stenosis is most often treatable and there are several ways to do so. Those who suffer from spinal stenosis may find that simple changes in posture provide them with relief. Practices such as flexing the spine by leaning forward while walking can relieve symptoms. So can lying with the knees drawn up to the chest. These positions enlarge the space available in the spine for the nerves and may help spinal stenosis suffers to do activities such as walking longer distances. Rest is another helpful tactic to aid spinal stenosis sufferers. Make sure your mattress and pillows are providing you with the proper support. After the right amount of rest, follow up with a gradual resumption of physical activity.
Aerobic exercise is another good practice to help with spinal stenosis pain relief. Doing things such as bicycling, yoga, swimming, and Pilates can be highly beneficial. When treating spinal stenosis, flexion exercises (forward bending) are often recommended. Flexing the lower spine by bending forward increases space in your spine and can alleviate irritation. Those who suffer from spinal stenosis often feel relief when bending forward rather than when they are standing up straight. There are also back exercises specific to targeting spinal stenosis pain. We also recommend using the McKenzie Method, which uses extensions and compressions to treat cervical and lumbar pain.
