Chiropractic relieves 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. Mandeville 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 be the result of
any of a number of issues like a disc herniation, disc bulge or
contained disc, synovial cyst. Any issue that narrows
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
seek surgical means to reduce spinal stenosis and open the
spinal canal area. Conservative care back pain specialists like
chiropractors and your Mandeville chiropractor at Mandeville Chiropractic offer
non-surgical means - like Mandeville spinal manipulation and
mobilization which are reported 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 shows 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 had higher disability scores. Surgical
spinal stenosis patients underwent 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 decisive proof to
endorse surgical or non-surgical care to lumbar spinal stenosis
sufferers. (2) Mandeville Chiropractic submits that a trial of 30
days looking for 50% improvement for most Mandeville back
pain patients with research-documented chiropractic care following the
protocols of the Cox Technic System of Care. Mandeville 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 exhibit 50% improvement
at their 6 months’ disability follow up. (3) Mandeville Chiropractic seeks
Mandeville pain relief as early as possible, and the treatment plan is established with this in mind. In some cases,
a small percent of patients, Mandeville Chiropractic may visit
with a Mandeville spinal stenosis patient daily
in the beginning. Mandeville Chiropractic takes good care of
our Mandeville lumbar spinal stenosis patients!
And finally Mandeville 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 if needed. (4) It’s fully
outlined in the algorithms of decision making that guide
our Cox Technic system of spine pain management and lumbar spinal stenosis.
