Spinal stenosis is a debilitating condition characterized by narrowing of the spinal canal or neural foramen that can lead to compression of the spinal cord and nerves. There are various treatment options to help this condition.  

Conservative therapies include physical therapy, activity modification, and exercise. These treatment options help to improve flexibility, strengthen muscles, and enhance posture to alleviate pain symptoms.

Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as Tylenol or ibuprofen can offer temporary relief by reducing pain and inflammation. Long term medications should be carefully monitored due to potential side effects.
