Lumbar Spinal Stenosis 

Lumbar spinal stenosis may be the result of a variety of issues like a disc herniation, disc bulge or contained disc, synovial cyst. Anything that shrinks the spinal canal area resulting in less space for the spinal nerves and other elements may cause spinal stenosis and pain. Surgeons and medical device companies look for surgical means to reduce spinal stenosis and open the spinal canal area. Conservative care back pain specialists like chiropractors and your Lynchburg chiropractor at Palmer Chiropractic Center seek non-surgical means - like Lynchburg spinal manipulation and mobilization which are shown to keep the disc healthy by improved water flow and diffusion (1) - to do the same thing: reduce spinal stenosis and open the spinal canal area.

Surgical vs Non-Surgical Care 

A comparison of surgical and conservative treatments of spinal stenosis shows that conservative care is more positive. At 6 months post-care – surgical or non-surgical – no significant differences are reported in the spinal stenosis patients. At 12 and 24 months post-care, the surgical spinal stenosis patients had higher disability scores. Surgical spinal stenosis patients suffered higher complication rates than the conservative care spinal stenosis patients. Based on their reviews of the published data, the researchers still do not feel that there is definitive proof to endorse surgical or non-surgical care to lumbar spinal stenosis sufferers.
