Home based exercise therapy with observation tools like a
pedometer or logbook and walking are other beneficial alternatives
to supervised exercise, allowing a bit more of the preferred independence.

A newer report states that
supervised physical therapy for lumbar spinal stenosis patients provided
significant short-term improvements in symptom severity, walking distance,
pain, physical activity and function compared with
unsupervised. (2) A follow-up study evaluated a more specialized
schedule of supervised physical therapy visits – two times a week
and one time weekly - to home exercise. It reports
specifically that 6 weeks of supervised physical therapy twice a
week for lumbar spinal stenosis patients allowed
significant short term improvements in the severity of symptoms, physical
function, back and leg pain and gait disturbance rather than
once a week PT visits and home exercise alone.
