Up until two decades ago, clinical interest in the etiopathogenetic interpretation of lumbo-radicular syndromes was prevalently concentrated on the pathology of the inter vertebral disc. This vision gradually changed and grew as a result of the affirmation of the concept of pathological narrowing of the osteoligamentous vertebral canal as a cause of compression of the lumbar nervous structures. Finally, in the last ten years, lumbar stenosis has become more and more a subject of current interest not only as a result of problems related to nosography, diagnosis, and therapy, but also as a result of the increasing frequency with which vertebral canal or nerve root canal stenosis syndromes are recognized and treated. At the same time there was a tendency to include in stenotic pathology other pathological conditions responsible for lumbo-radicular syndromes. This led to dilation of the concept of stenosis, which perhaps no longer responded to reality, and which was not useful from a practical point of view. The need to define stenotic pathology and to correctly locate it within the vast field of lumbar pathology inspired the writing of this volume. This monograph gathers many diagnostic and therapeutic concepts matured at our In stitution over the years. Some of these concepts have already been defined in scientific meet ings or in publications.

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. Exercise sheets are included to help guide you step-by-step through a sixweek program. Jim Johnson, P.T. is a physical therapist who has spent over nineteen years treating both inpatients and outpatients with a wide range of pain and mobility problems. He has written many books based completely on published research and controlled trials including The Multifidus Back Pain Solution, Treat Your Own Knees, The Sixty-Second Motivator, Treat Your Own Rotator Cuff, The 5-Minute Plantar Fasciitis Solution, Finding Happiness in a Frustrating World, Exercise Beats Depression and Treat Your Own Tennis Elbow. His books have been translated into other languages and thousands of copies have been sold worldwide. Besides working full-time as a clinician in a major teaching hospital and writing books, Jim Johnson is a certified Clinical Instructor by the American Physical Therapy Association and enjoys teaching physical therapy students from all over the United States.

Suffering from a variety of conditions, we formed a small group of individuals that were also struggling, and we helped each other remain accountable as we healed ourselves naturally. How did we do this? We researched tirelessly and tried multiple different methods until we finally started seeing results through the use of protocols taught by legendary healers, Dr Arnold Ehret and Dr Robert Morse. Note: all information and resources are readily available for personal study and application, online. Dr Arnold Ehret's books can be downloaded freely if you search for "arnold ehret books pdf". Visit rawfigs.com for Dr Robert Morse videos which can be searched through by keywords via the search bar. Familiarise yourself with their teachings and protocols and move forward as you put this journal to use. Throughout our healing journeys, we found the process of recording our progress to be of great help. Our journals also helped us in note-taking of anything that we found useful, along with any tips and hacks that we came across. We felt inspired to create a personalised 30 day journal for your condition encouraging you to track your thoughts, feelings, progress and knowledge as you enjoy success and fulfillment on your journey of self healing. One of the key conclusions that we reached through our individual journeys was that whether you are a sufferer of Lumbar Spinal Stenosis, or any other condition, the same protocol that we used to heal will apply to you. However, dependant on the severity and time endured, you may need to follow the protocols for longer, using specific herbs (and glandulars) in order to achieve positive results, but you can make your own adjustments as you learn more. Equipped with the information found on this page, we trust that you will benefit greatly from this journal and reach your goals. Use it to keep yourself accountable, use it for noting down useful information that you discover, whilst recording the raw vegan foods (fruit, vegetables, herbs) that you eat and juice. Record daily routines such as time spent fasting, time spent eating, water consumed, sauna or lymph moving exercises performed, and anything else that you find to be supportive. You will never miss a moment now and remain focused on your goals. We wish you all the best. The Health Formation Team

The characteristic symptom of lumbar spinal stenosis is neurogenic claudication (spinal claudication). When walking, the patient experiences pain (which usually starts in the back and radiates to the legs), numbness or weakness. If the symptoms are tolerable and the patient’s functional capacity is intact, the first-line management options are conservative treatment, analgesia and physiotherapy. Indications for surgery include unbearable pain not relieved with conservative treatment, gradually shortening walking distance (< 200–300 m), progressing neurological deficit or cauda equina syndrome.

Bridging the gap between the medical literature and the practice of lumbar spine medicine, this user-friendly, accessible text describes the causes of lower back pain and associated “sciatic” pathologies and how these problems can be successfully treated without surgery. Beginning with a review of the anatomy of the lumbar spine and the most common causes of lower back pain, diagnostic and management strategies for a variety of conditions are discussed, including discogenic pain, facet joint pain, sacroiliac joint pain, spondylolisthesis, lumbar radiculopathy, piriformis syndrome, spinal stenosis, and compression fractures. Chapters on epidural steroid injections, exercises for lower back pain and alternative treatments follow, as well as when it is appropriate to recommend surgery. The second section of the book is devoted to numerous clinical scenarios in which evidence based medicine is applied to actual clinical cases. Non-Operative Treatment of the Lumbar Spine will be a valuable reference for orthopedists, rheumatologists, physiatrists, pain management specialists, neurologists, and anyone treating patients with lower back pain.
