Spinal Stenosis Boot Camp

Active Healthcare Centre is proud to offer the spinal stenosis boot camp. Dr. James Koehle has been certified to offer this program. Until recently, patients wishing to benefit from the boot camp program were referred to the clinic located at Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto.

The boot camp program was developed at Mount Sinai Hospital by Dr. Carlo Ammendolia D.C, PhD.

Dr. Ammendolia is the Director of the Chiropractic Spine Clinic and Spinal Stenosis Program at the Rebecca MacDonald Centre for Arthritis & Autoimmune Diseases located at Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto. He is also the founder of Spine mobility. Dr. Ammendolia and his research team have developed a new treatment approach with the focus of improving standing and walking ability in patients with lumbar spinal stenosis.

The overall goal of the program is to improve the quality of life and maintain independence among the growing number of people who have lumbar spinal stenosis.

The program combines manual therapy, special exercises, instruction on body re-positioning techniques and self-management strategies. Manual therapy uses a special table that helps align 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 when standing and walking. It is known that changing body alignment can reduce symptoms. LSS is a chronic problem and learning how to live more effectively with it using self-management strategies allows you to become more in control and therefore better able to better cope with lumbar spinal stenosis.
