Since it is uncertain to me how you arrived at a diagnosis of spinal stenosis or what your physical complaints are it’s difficult to offer any insight as to whether acupuncture will be helpful for you. That said, often people equate spinal stenosis with back pain. Acupuncture in general can help with back pain irrespective of what’s causing it.
But in my own personal experience, I have had good results with patients. But again, it depends upon other factors, such as frequency of visits, how many treatments you get before making an accurate assessment of how you do overall with acupuncture. Making adjustments where needed on proper footwear, swapping out your mattress if it is too old or not supportive, postural changes, exercise, and so on. Good luck!!!!
I have several patients that are using acupuncture to push back the date of their surgery for their own reasons. Not everyone responds to acupuncture, but most people do and the risks
(bruising at the needle site) are so low that it's usually worth a try to see if it does help.
I hope you feel better soon!
There are several questions I would like to ask you regarding the symptoms you are experiencing eg. what are the symptoms you are experiencing, how long have you had these symptoms, the pain level, how do you cope with the pain, what makes you feel better and what makes you feel worse, regarding to the pain, do you feel pain all the time or the pain comes and goes, is there any time in the day you feel the pain worsen, etc…. Once I have all my questions answered, I will have an idea of how the treatment plan for you would be. If you would like, you can come by the clinic for a consultation. I hope my answers are helpful.
Be well, be confident, we can help.
