Stenosis. If you are a bit older, you likely
know spinal stenosis. You experienced its hurting
results yourself or someone close to you does. Spinal
stenosis gives rise to back pain, neck pain, arm pain
and/or leg pain (sciatica). It is not much fun at all!
No magic pill cures it or prevents it. But chiropractic
care incorporating the gentle Cox® Technic flexion distraction
spinal manipulation system may ease it, slowly
and steadily. After the spinal stenosis pain is better, Chicago
chiropractic patients are more fully equipped to do what
they can to decrease the odds of future incidents,
prepared with exercises, diet tips, daily activities’ modification
tips, and the knowledge that Chicago
chiropractic care at Chiropractic Care is effective.
COX® TECHNIC FOR SPINAL STENOSIS
One of the first ever written and peer-review
published papers by Dr. Cox, developer of Cox® Technic flexion distraction, discussed stenosis. (1) More recently, a comparison study of flexion distraction treatment to
conservative treatment for patients with spinal stenosis revealed
that flexion distraction spinal manipulation was more valuable
for pain reduction and disability recovery. (2)
Another study showed that Cox® flexion distraction manipulation
brought about pain improvement by 76% and disability by 73%.
(3) Today, one of the most recent published reports
indicates that there is evidence that
chiropractic care is possibly beneficial for
patients experiencing pain of lumbar
spinal stenosis. It additionally emphasizes
that chiropractic treatments of spinal stenosis are most often
flexion-distraction manipulation. (4) That’s true at
Chiropractic Care! Chicago spinal stenosis patients get
relief with our Chicago chiropractic services.
FLEXION DISTRACTION FOR STENOSIS-RELATED NEUROGENIC
Neurogenic claudication frequently accompanies lumbar spinal stenosis, causing cramping leg pain for
its Chicago sufferers. Researchers discovered that treatments two times a week including manual therapy like lumbar spine flexion distraction (generic term for
Cox® Technic spinal manipulation), soft tissue and neural mobilization,
chiropractic spinal manipulation, and muscle stretching along with structured home-based exercises, and instruction of self-management
strategies lead to improved consequences
(pain, disability, walking ability, treatment satisfaction). (5)
Chiropractic Care follows a similar chiropractic care system with
our Chicago spinal stenosis patients. Chiropractic Care treats the
whole person, not only the pain.
