Lumbar Spinal Stenosis Treatment Outcomes: Exercise = Surgery

What succeeds for Lynchburg back pain relief due to lumbar spinal stenosis, exercise or decompression laminectomy surgery? Both…equally…says a new study! (1) Lynchburg chiropractic patients would expect Palmer Chiropractic Center to highlight chiropractic care for lumbar spinal stenosis. Palmer Chiropractic Center agrees! Lynchburg chiropractic care includes many forms of non-surgical care like exercise and nutrition and Lynchburg spinal manipulation. Palmer Chiropractic Center offers Lynchburg conservative care that is evidence-based and recorded to work to ease Lynchburg back pain for our Lynchburg back pain patients.


Care of lumbar spine stenosis often is determined by the severity of symptoms the patient has. If there aren’t any signs of severe motor changes or bowel or urinary changes, Lynchburg conservative care is first line of care. Patients with serious intermittent claudication who do well with conservative treatment still need special attention as this disorder is a risk factor for poorer outcomes. (2) Your Lynchburg chiropractor watches cautiously for these issues that are quite rare fortunately! Palmer Chiropractic Center gently and successfully cares for lumbar spinal stenosis.


Lumbar spinal stenosis is common spinal condition in older Lynchburg adults. As we age, disc and cartilage degenerate. When discs degenerate, the vertebral bones they separate and support grow nearer each other and cause pain. Spinal stenosis may trigger significant worry for people as far as walking and other everyday activities for which non-surgical care is often successful in helping them to walk better and do their everyday activities as desired.  (3) Palmer Chiropractic Center helps ease spinal stenosis related back pain for Lynchburg chiropractic patients.


Lumbar spinal stenosis patients want relief and are ready to do their job! Australian chiropractors report that they use diversified manipulation for several conditions but chose flexion distraction (Cox Technic) for lumbar disc syndrome with radiculopathy and lumbar central stenosis. Soft tissue and exercise recommendations were implemented a great deal, too.  (4) Not astonishingly, Lynchburg chiropractic patients with spinal stenosis prefer treatment plans that are fitted to them specifically and their own specific impairments and limitations. They are willing to be trained in and do self-care in order to not be required to go to healthcare providers so much. In one study patients report that medical care was frequently correlated to minimal to no effect on pain! Patients described that exercise improved their pain level and function but realized that these changes to be impermanent. What does that mean? Lynchburg patients with lumbar spinal stenosis need to perform their exercises all the time not just when in pain. (3) Palmer Chiropractic Center is the number one supporter of Lynchburg chiropractic patients who want to take care of themselves with Lynchburg exercise!
