Chiropractic relieves conditions like
spinal stenosis. Spinal stenosis is all around us today. Why?
An aging population. We are all aging, and when we achieve a
certain age, our bodies reward us with conditions like spinal
stenosis. There’s no problem, though! Chiropractic care is a solution
for many spinal stenosis pain patients. Apple Country Chiropractic 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 result from
any of a number of issues like a disc herniation, disc bulge or
contained disc, synovial cyst. Anything that shrinks
the spinal canal area that results in
less space for the spinal nerves and other elements may cause spinal stenosis and pain. Surgeons and medical device companies
offer surgical means to reduce spinal stenosis and open the
spinal canal space12. Conservative care back pain specialists like
chiropractors and your Williamson chiropractor at Apple Country Chiropractic pursue
non-surgical means - like Williamson spinal manipulation and
mobilization which are shown to keep the
disc healthy by improved water flow and diffusion (1) - to do the same thing:
diminish spinal stenosis and widen the spinal canal
Surgical vs Non-Surgical Care
A comparison of surgical and conservative treatments of
spinal stenosis explains that conservative care leads
in outcomes. At 6 months post-care – surgical or
non-surgical – no significant differences are presented in
the spinal stenosis patients. At 12 and 24 months post-care, the surgical
spinal stenosis patients report higher disability scores. Surgical
spinal stenosis patients experienced higher
complication rates than the conservative care spinal stenosis patients. Based
on their reviews of the published data, the researchers still don’t
feel that there is definitive proof to
endorse surgical or non-surgical care to lumbar spinal stenosis
sufferers. (2) Apple Country Chiropractic suggests that a trial of 30
days seeking 50% improvement for most Williamson back
pain patients with research-documented chiropractic care following the
protocols of the Cox Technic System of Care. Apple Country Chiropractic is a good
place to start!
Early Improvement Under Care
Those spinal stenosis patients who show 33% to
50% improvement in pain at 2 weeks of care have better
odds of 6 to 7 times greater to have 50% improvement
at their 6 months’ disability follow up. (3) Apple Country Chiropractic seeks
Williamson pain relief as early as possible, and the treatment plan is established with this in mind. In some cases,
a small number of patients, Apple Country Chiropractic may visit
with a Williamson spinal stenosis patient daily
at the start of care. Apple Country Chiropractic takes good care of
our Williamson lumbar spinal stenosis patients!
And finally Apple Country Chiropractic 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 as needed. (4) It’s fully
outlined in the algorithms of decision making that lead
our Cox Technic system of spine pain management and lumbar spinal stenosis.
