Chicago Lumbar Spinal Stenosis Relief at Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic alleviates conditions like spinal stenosis. Spinal stenosis is everywhere today. Why? An aging population. We are all aging, and when we achieve a certain age, our bodies compensate us with conditions like spinal stenosis. There’s no problem, though! Chiropractic care is a solution for many spinal stenosis pain patients. Chiropractic Care 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 condition 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 seek surgical means to reduce spinal stenosis and open the spinal canal space12. Conservative care back pain specialists like chiropractors and your Chicago chiropractor at Chiropractic Care offer non-surgical means - like Chicago spinal manipulation and mobilization which reportedly keep the disc healthy by improved water flow and diffusion (1) - to do the same thing: reduce spinal stenosis and widen the spinal canal area.

Surgical vs Non-Surgical Care 

A comparison of surgical and conservative treatments of spinal stenosis shows that conservative care is better. At 6 months post-care – surgical or non-surgical – no significant differences are noted 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 recommend surgical or non-surgical care to lumbar spinal stenosis sufferers. (2) Chiropractic Care submits that a trial of 30 days seeking 50% improvement for most Chicago back pain patients with research-documented chiropractic care following the protocols of the Cox Technic System of Care. Chiropractic Care is a reasonable 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 increased odds of 6 to 7 times higher to have 50% improvement at their 6 months’ disability follow up. (3) Chiropractic Care looks for Chicago pain relief as early as possible, and the treatment plan is established with this in mind. With some patients, a small number of patients, Chiropractic Care may consult a Chicago spinal stenosis patient on a daily basis in the beginning. Chiropractic Care takes good care of our Chicago lumbar spinal stenosis patients!

And finally Chiropractic Care 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.
