Spinal Stenosis


Tall Tree is excited to offer our Spinal Stenosis Program

Why are we offering it?

Lumbar spinal stenosis is typically treated with medications and surgery. Recent research has found physiotherapy alongside certain exercise therapies and education to offer long-term outcomes that are just as good!
