Spinal stenosis... Likely out for the year.
Spinal Stenosis can cause many problems, I have it, it can mess with you in many ways, but the issue is higher risk of paralysis in athletes......now, there is all kinds of paralysis.......exercise and PT can keep it manageable. The narrowing of the spinal cord is scary, especially in the neck (me), you become very self-aware when looking up, you want to minimize anything that could make it worse.

Go Vols!

You screw up that spine and it's gonna change your life and not for the better. He's hopefully got a long life ahead so unless the kid digs daily pain and surgeries, he'd be wise to get out of football/contact sports.

Yes, doing fine, but there are days that are almost debilitating (pain, stiffness, ) as you age, it's not a matter of if, but when surgery is required. I try to stay in shape, can't run, I cycle, lift light, and I only eat a half a rack vs. A whole rack of ribs 😖, alchohol is not a friend of stenosis, so, it's one small beer 😭

Thanks for asking...........Go Vols!

I have a herniated c6 and c7 disk with severe stenosis and have found incredible results from dry needling (acupuncture) and traction
