Combined Pain

Many people are diagnosed with more than one spine condition.

You may be diagnosed with a combination of spinal stenosis, bulging discs, bone spurs, degenerative joint disease and facet joint deterioration.

The focus of exercise is a combination of flexibility and strengthening, which allows for support and relief of pressure on the spine and nerves, regardless of your diagnosed condition.

You should avoid aggressive exercises, sports or activities such as jet skiing, horseback riding and jogging. You should also avoid heavy construction and yardwork.

Do not bend too far forward or backward and avoid standing or sitting in one position for too long.
