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 West Palm Beach chiropractor at Chiropractic Care offer
non-surgical means - like West Palm Beach spinal manipulation and
mobilization which reportedly 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 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 West Palm Beach 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
West Palm Beach 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 West Palm Beach spinal stenosis patient on a daily basis
in the beginning. Chiropractic Care takes good care of
our West Palm Beach 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. (4) It is well defined in the algorithms of decision making that direct
our Cox Technic system of spine pain management and lumbar spinal stenosis.
