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.
If your kidneys are in good shape, you might want to try anti-inflammatories (NSAID).

     whereas suffering is caused by a distorted mind.

Stretching might be worth another look. I don't have stenosis but stretching has relieved my regular and quite intense back aches as I slowly got the tension out. Stretching back muscles is difficult and requires a patient and long term dedication. After a year of that I still have a ways to go with my back but I haven't had a backache except a similar pain I sometimes get after my stretches. It last only a minute (literally) now and then my back feels looser than ever. It's pretty much good except the vertebrae between my hips and near my neck now. I would get in a stretch like the butterfly or scorpion and go gentle if I were you. Just feel the stretch out, make little shifts until its stretching your hips. Be careful though. you usually have to stretch other muscles to get to muscles you need to stretch. For me at first I was stretching surface muscles, but I've gotten to the muscles between my spine and hips now, deep in my legs and back, and little tiny thin muscles that might be ligaments or tendons. Its CHANGED my LIFE! I try not to go to far an any one stretch now though lol... I've had multiple one or two hour long stretching sessions that changed my life just then... where my whole body felt loose and noodley afterward... now I just want the process to work, it taught me patience and listening to my body!

I worked on Orthopedics as an X-ray tech for 10 years. Its a condition where the spinal canal narrows so you are pretty much done. The only cure you can get now is believing in Jesus and Mary and asking the Physician to come heal you .. But it requires faith, tremendous faith.. like me. I have listened to Jesus on what he said about the cripple.. "have faith and be well!" Heck that's to easy for me!

I went out on a work comp back injury in 2009-- 2 bulging disk but I recovered with my faith. ++I was doomed to hvy labor to repay my child support. 10 years in the dumps.

All of the above :)...then ask yourself where do your feelings (perhaps unconscious) of a lack of support come from;
could be financial, could be
messages from the past like, "You'll never amt to anything"..or ''This world is hard''.
What is keeping you from standing tall and simply doing what it is you would like to....successfully.
Just a thought.

If you have extra weight that could be pulling on the lumbar causing discomfort ...again ...why are you retaining
this weight and not 'going for it' ---being slim and fit...

WHAT is holding you back, my friend ...a message from childhood?
Some nutty belief system?

(How many xs did I have to have a knee issue before someone simply said to me in a book club yrs ago, "Ya know knee
issues usually mean fear of moving forward."

Oh? Never had another knee issue!)

"Prepare yourself for the coming astral journey of death by riding daily in a balloon of divine perception.
Through delusion you are perceiving yourself as a bundle of flesh and bones...Meditate unceasingly,
that you quickly behold yourself as the Infinite Essence"
~~Lahiri Mahasaya, the guru of Yogananda's guru

I have no scientific evidence for anything I say.
Better to PM me if you want me to see a post to me. I miss a lot.
