Looking at Stenosis

Stenosis can occur for so many people and the symptoms don't always include back pain. In this tutorial, Sherri Betz explains what stenosis is and how it can be differentiated from disc pain.

Another great couple of tutorials, thanks Sherri. When Amy is flossing the nerve at around the 13 minute mark, is she working into and out of pain as she flexes and extends her ankle? If so, how much pain is acceptable? I would guess only tolerable pain and if its too much, you would back off to a less stressful position?
