Lumbar spine stenosis

I visited an osteopath a few months ago. For stenosis. he proceeded to tell me the best way for me to address the problem was lose weight.
He didn't really have any other method. he tried very hard to adjust my back but failed. A small guy of about 65 kg. whereas I am around 105 kg.
Oh stretch the hip flexors which didn't make any difference at all.
On the last visit he injured me. Bruised ribs. Doctor said I was entitled to 3 days off work but if I don't work I don't get paid.
any ideas to cure lumbar stenosis. I spend an hour a day on my core muscle exercises. Even then pain will come if I stand more than an hour.

I have heard people talk about inversion tables.
I have not tried one yet.
Just because I believe it today, doesn't mean I will believe it tomorrow.

I would focus on glute activation as that actually is quite vital to lumbar health.
Obviously I am not a doctor but have had enough care by body workers of all types and anytime I had lumbar issues with my very strong core they would have me work on glutes and the pain would be eased quickly. I realize your issue is more serious than what I have encountered but if you are already looking at exercise to support the issue it is worth incorporating.

Also lots of core exercises will activate the quad, sort of as an aid to the abdominals when they get fatigued or are weak to the point you become quad dominant and your body will naturally use glutes less so they become weak and cannot do their job supporting the lower back.

If you select core exercises that do not activate quads it will help keep you from making your body naturally neglect use of glutes.
