Chiropractic alleviates conditions like
spinal stenosis. Spinal stenosis is all around us today. Why?
An aging population. We are all aging, and when we get to a
certain age, our bodies reward us with conditions like spinal
stenosis. There is no problem, though! Chiropractic care is a solution
for many spinal stenosis pain patients. Palmer Chiropractic Center offers gentle,
evidence-based chiropractic care in the form of Cox Technic to help control and
relieve back pain due to spinal stenosis.
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
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. (2) Palmer Chiropractic Center offers that a trial of 30
days seeking 50% improvement for most Lynchburg back
pain patients with research-documented chiropractic care following the
protocols of the Cox Technic System of Care. Palmer Chiropractic Center is a reasonable
place to start!
Early Improvement Under Care
Those spinal stenosis patients who display 33% to
50% improvement in pain at 2 weeks of care have increased
odds of 6 to 7 times higher to exhibit 50% improvement
at their 6 months’ disability follow up. (3) Palmer Chiropractic Center seeks
Lynchburg pain relief as early as possible, and the treatment plan is established with this in mind. In some cases,
a small number of patients, Palmer Chiropractic Center may see a Lynchburg spinal stenosis patient daily
at the start of care. Palmer Chiropractic Center takes good care of
our Lynchburg lumbar spinal stenosis patients!
And lastly Palmer Chiropractic Center relies on its experienced
clinical judgment and evidence of a patient’s not improving as expected to
order more imaging or schedule a surgical consultation if needed. (4) It is well defined in the algorithms of decision making that direct
our Cox Technic system of spine pain management and lumbar spinal stenosis.
