Spinal stenosis usually brings to mind images of bone spurs, pinched nerves, a wornout spine and pain. However few people know that scientific studies have shown up to 69% of people over the age of 55 to have spinal stenosis on an MRI exam, but no pain. Clearly radiographic pictures of one's spine do not tell the whole tale, as there are many people that are able to live pain-free with spinal stenosis. But if having a horrible looking spine on an MRI doesn't necessarily mean you'll have pain, then what does? Well, consider the study that checked out the back muscles of spinal stenosis patients with an EMG - and found that 17 out of 22 of them had abnormalities! Apparently there are other factors involved that might determine if one will have pain or not. Treat Your Own Spinal Stenosis will answer these kinds of questions and more. It will teach you what spinal stenosis is and how it got there. Then, you will learn what you can do about it by putting your spine through a series of "Tune-Ups." Based en rely on randomized controlled trials, Treat Your Own Spinal Stenosis is a simple, yet effective program that can be done in the privacy of your home with minimal cost or equipment.
