Dr. Carlo Ammendolia talks about Spinal Stenosis on Canada AM (CTV)

Dr. Carlo Ammendolia, a chiropractor and associate scientist at Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto, has developed a specialized six-week “lumbar boot camp” exercise program for spinal stenosis patients.

He appeared on Canada AM on Tuesday, April 21st, to discuss spinal stenosis and his research, which aims to tailor treatments to prevent further episodes and disability. His approach empowers patients with the knowledge, skills, and self-confidence to self-manage future episodes independently.

“Spinal stenosis impacts people’s ability to walk, stand, and function,” Ammendolia told CTV’s Canada AM. “There are a number of medications that can be used, but none of them have been shown to be effective right now.”

Ammendolia’s boot camp focuses on exercise to treat symptoms, rather than relying on drugs or surgery. His exercises are currently being tested in clinical trials.
