can you tell me if there is any cure for lumbar spine stenosis other than surgery?

No cure, but can: Treat symptomology and help strengthen other areas to take off stress to impinged/irritated areas. Include physical therapy and core strengthening to help support the surrounding areas and keep proper vertebral lordotic curvature. You can also have medications to control the neuropathic pain and interventional procedures to decrease the inflammation. Hope this helps!

Not really: There are conservative treatment options including pt, chiropractic and epidural steroid injections. If the symptoms progress to the point of severely limiting your activities, then surgery is the definitive treatment. Check out spine-health.Com.
