Hi: I just found your wonderful and helpful website.. I have been diagnosed with Spinal Stenosis...I've had two MRIs and an X-Ray, two cortisone injections. The Doctor is recommending that I lose weight...yikes. I take Meloxicam, something like Advil, once in awhile.
I'm booked for accupuncture...not the regular acupuncture needles, but very long needles...just wondering if anyone has ever had this done, by a Doctor here in Vancouver, who received the Order of Canada and the Order of British Columbia. Glad to be on board.
God Bless, Holly.


  • Hi Holly,

    Welcome to Spine Health. I'm your neighbor living about 90 miles to the south. This is an excellent forum for gathering information, meeting others who understand and venting to others who totally "get it".

    Acupuncture is awesome. It doesn't last as long as most want it to, but any relief, no matter how short, is always welcome.

  • Hi Holly,

    I am just across the pond from you!:)
    I found acupuncture great relief!
    Looking forward to reading how you made out at your appt!
    wanted to share a great way to loose weight-- aquafit. Some recreation centres offer "gentle" waterfit classes too. Chat with your Dr or PT, see what they think.
    All the best!
