Most cases of Spinal Stenosis can be treated with non-surgical methods aimed at pain relief.  Over-the-counter medication or prescription medication may be used to reduce pain.  If your symptoms do not improve significantly with these medications, your doctor may recommend physical therapy or epidural steroid injections.
 
Epidural steroid injections may be performed by your doctor or by a pain management specialist.  The injections are placed into the space around your spinal cord and nerves.  The steroid (a type of cortisone) "leaks" around the nerves to decrease inflammation and irritation.  The injections are often given in a series of three-once per week for three weeks.  The results of these injections are very variable.
 
Occupational or physical therapists can help you strengthen your back, stomach, and legs.  Persons with weak stomach muscles and spinal degeneration may wear a lumbar brace or corset during activities to provide support.  Stretching exercises will help to keep your back flexible.  Cardiovascular exercises help to build up your endurance and improve blood circulation to your nerves.  This can help to relieve the symptoms of Spinal Stenosis.  Your therapist can also recommend durable medical equipment to aid your safety and activity performance.  Such devices could include a cane for walking or a shower chair.  Physical therapy is also used following surgery for spinal stenosis.  See the section on recovery for specifics.
