LUMBER SPINAL STENOSIS (LSS) BOOTCAMP

Dr. Darlene Buan-Basit is certified to provide the manual therapy and prescribe exercises of the Spinal Stenosis Bootcamp Program. This evidence based program was developed by Dr. Carlo Ammendolia and his research team at Mt Sinai Hospital in Toronto.

The program combines manual therapy, special exercises, instruction on body re-positioning techniques and self-management strategies. Manual therapy aligns the spine to maximize the openings for the spinal nerves. Special exercises help restore weak back and leg muscles and when combined with body alignment strategies, help to reduce the pressure on the compressed nerves.
