Unfortunately....no: As an osteopathic physician, whose practice includes "manipulative therapy, " it is my opinion that spinal stenosis is not correctable with any form of manipulation or physical medicine.

Go see a trained spine specialist. Chances are your spine is all right. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

The most common cause is spondylolysis of the cervical spine (intervertebral disk degeneration) or it could be muscle strain from a minor injury.

Swayback: There is a normal amount of lordosis in the lumbar spine, which is approximately 55 degrees. When you have a lordosis significantly more than this, it is called hyperlordosis, which is a way to say "swayback".
