Arthritis (also referred to as Stenosis or Degenerative Disc Disease) is a common cause of lower back pain. Many people diagnosed with lower back pain caused by arthritis are left wondering exactly what this diagnosis means for them.

Common questions include:

  • “If I have low back pain from arthritis now, how much worse will it become with age?”
  • “Will the arthritis become a crippling condition? Will I end up in a wheelchair?”

While you may not be 18 again, there are several steps you can take to prevent the condition of Stenosis or Degenerative Disc Disease form getting worse. First, the best advice is to stay active. Second, do the following exercises every day when you first get out of bed (usually when the pain is the worst.)
