  1. I am 20 almost 21 and I have been diagnosed with spinal stenosis along DDD (mild), 3 bulging discs and 2 just barely touching nerves. I have no pain down any of my limbs or anywhere else for that matter but it’s all central in my lower back. My PT is convinced I have no pain from the stenosis but also insists I shouldn’t be getting pain from my bulging discs. It almost seems as if my PT doesn’t believe I have any pain which is absurd to think. I’ve had this problem for 3 year and it’s gotten worse over the last year even after PT for 4 months so I don’t believe it’s from the bulging Discs. It has to be my stenosis getting worse I’m so convinced even though I don’t have pain down my legs.

  2. I’m 46 and have a diagnosis of spinal stenosis, with the nerve pain down my legs I now have a permanent ache where the nerve pain generally goes to (hope that makes sense) my question to Bob & Brad is does that damage to the nerves ever reverse or is it always going to ache? My physio has me doing pelvic floor exercises 🤷🏻‍♀️ and rolling against the wall with a firm ball.

  3. How can I manage my thigh going into spasm? I have had a few surgeries and I know for sure I have a herniated disc that is squashed and as you said if just gives way and you fall but the pain in my left leg is a killer and when I say that I mean it cause of Covid I have no help and I have very dark thoughts going through my head cause the pain in unbearable and they have me on low doses of opioids that just aren’t strong enough to make that pain tolerable. I can do all these exercises but as soon as I stop pulling my leg to my chest the pain starts immediately. I don’t know what to do.

  4. Hi i have lumbar lateral recesses narrowing (L4:L5 central protrusion and L5:S1 foraminal protrusion). When i try to do decompression by hanging then it increases nerve pain in my right leg. should i avoid it ?

  5. This is great. My stenosis hit me at 58. I am an an athlete.I can't stand very long, nor walk (or hike in the forest.) But I can ride a full-suspension mountain bike for hours pain free, To complicate things, I have a intravenous filter in my vena cava right where the stenosis is, so puncturing that during surgery is risks with great consequences.

    Your videos are well put together. I've found tightness in my hamstring and quads add to the psoas tightness, and spending 10 minutes foam rolling the knots out greatly reduces the pain immediately. If I can't stand up to make my morning coffee, there is a problem.

    To other people. Avoiding surgery takes a lot of work. Every day. It's hard. It hurts. You will want to quit. Don't. Take a break, but don't let it get away from you. To avoid boredom, find different exercises, with different props, and run them past your PT You don't want to be on the "surgery train."

  6. Amen Amen, Thank you sirs, I'm so grateful for your video's, and stretch therapy..there is currently No surgery options available for my chronic condition, However I'm coping an Have been with the so called New normal,lol whatever the Word normal means regardless ! Ty again for the light exercise regimen s..

  7. You always mention age of people over fifty. Yes gods! Fifty is still in diapers, age-wise. I’m 86-1/2 and felt young UNTIL I, during a household move, (got married 2-1/2 years ago), and carried too many boxes of books — picking up a long, heavy one from off the floor. I felt a pop in my back. Since then, as I ignored it and continued to use my back as usual (for instance,' playing frisby and having to constantly pick up the frisby), my upper legs now hurt, especially the psoas, walking is painful and now my lower back is beginning to hurt, and I tire very easily. I don’t hurt sitting, but, WOW, getting up and trying to move is like trying to move a painful elephant. And I’ve become bent over. And leg spasms are demoralizing. I don’t think doctors know what these spasms are. They aren’t pain, but perhaps worse. You always mention pain down the back of legs — mine is down the front. Love you guys and your information — I’ll keep looking. But please start mentioning people over 80. We’re still out here and before Covid we were very active (some of us). Sadly, since Covid, I put on 20 pounds. Took off ten of those now. I was planning to go walking in the Cotswolds, going to get up to seven miles per day. Now I have a hard time due to leg pain walking one block. Really, 50 is nowhere in age!!!!!🤪 Start including me — mention us over 80!

  8. I was diagnosed with spinal stenosis in my early 30s, degenerative disc disease in my early 20s and scoliosis when I was 12 years old. I try to be careful but I hurt myself just scooting down on my bed 🤦🏻‍♀️ so fraustraing.

  9. I had a spinal fusion six years ago and just found out my pain is from adjacent disc degeneration. Did physical therapy because I do not want another surgery, but every morning I wake with my hips and back hurting. Can I do these exercises for my degeneration?

  10. Hi! I have been watching you for almost 2 years. I am very grateful for what you do! I had L5 S1 laminectomy/discectomy Feb 2020. Also have lumbar stenosis, arthritis and L5 spondylothesis. Pain in back of right thigh on ocassion but numbness is my biggest concern. From crotch down to right foot and sometimes in left foot. Sometimes it's worse depending on what I sit on or for how long or depends on if I may overdue simple household activities. Numbness on a good day is just the outer part of my right foot. Doctors and PE have not been helpful. But you are both very knowledgeable and helpful. I just watched this video and will try it out. You are the greatest and have helped me after my surgery and with other issues. Thanks so much guys-you are the most famous in my book! A forever fan!

  11. Hi Bob & Brad!😊 I have narrowing of L4-5 & SI joint disfunction. For the past few weeks, I’ve had lower back pain with a burning sensation which radiates to the groin/lower abdomen area. A few weeks back, I was helping a friend & lifted one of those big bottles of water. I made sure to lift it correctly, but the pain has since exacerbated. Is it possible that I have a herniated disc? My low back pain has been pretty constant for at least 10 years. I wasn’t sure if these exercises would help me or not.
    I’m considering another X-ray to see if something has changed. Please advise! Thank you!

  12. I’m 30 and I have it lol it’s crazy that people only regard old people and illness or ailment because it’s not uncommon anymore glad I found this channel they discuss a lot

  13. Can we please highlight red flags…loss of bladder or bowel function (or both) pain in both legs at the same time, loss of feeling in both or one leg, numbness within the saddle area (front &/or back passage) call 999 or 911…this is a medical emergency, I was rushed in by blue lights with a very rare condition called CAUDA EQUINA SYNDROME. If you get ANY of the above red flags, don't waste time, get it seen too because it may just save your mobility. I ended up in a wheelchair for 4 years and I still have problems and struggle with daily life. Take care of your spine!

  14. I had an sciatica attack for 2 months I almost went out of my mind with constant muscle spasms now that's gone but I have a numbness in my right foot from time to time and it's also a problem and I wondered whether or not these stretches would alleviate that condition
