Thanks for your reply.  It's very nice that you do this.

I checked and you were  right, there weren't any in the US.

I did mean to ask if spinal stenosis can actually get better.  I thought that was some kind of calcification and nothing could change that?

Hi Katielyn, that is right nothing may change the calcification but if the area is properly supported by strong healthy balanced muscles you probably won't have any symptoms anyway. If you read the Bad Back Book I talk about the study done that found may older people are walking around with multiple spinal problems but no pain.

Regards
Steve

As a physiotherapist it will also help your own patients because you will learn a lot about treating their back pain Hellen,

Hi Stevie,

Pain in the buttocks and around te sacrum when sitting is usually from a rotated pelvis. The tingling in the toes is normally from thower back being too tight from that rotation and irritating a nerve. It is possibly the sciatic nerve but which one doesn't really matter.

You need to get the rotation out of your pelvis so the pressure on the muscles around your lower back can be released.

Make sure you get a full body treatment approach for this with focus on the muscles rather than adjusting the joints. My self treatment program will help guide you through this if you need more help.

Good luck,
Steve
