I have been diagnosed with Spinal Stenosis caused by Short Pedicle Syndrome. I have been having more days with more severe pain lately. I just started some physial therapy to see if it can help with some of the pain. Nothing as severe as what most folks on here have experienced, but I wonder what the future holds.
And now to my question: I have been taking Tae Kwon Do with my daughters for almost 2 years and we have a great time together. Well, my doctor just told me that it is time to give up Tae Kwon Do
So, what do you think, will the martial arts speed up the damage/degeneration to my back, is the doctor right or does the exercise it gives me outweigh any negatives? Does anyone out there participate in martial arts ?
