Chiropractic relieves 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 reward us with conditions like spinal
stenosis. There’s no problem, though! Chiropractic care is a solution
for many spinal stenosis pain patients. Back And Neck Care Center 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. Anything that narrows
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
look for surgical means to reduce spinal stenosis and open the
spinal canal space12. Conservative care back pain specialists like
chiropractors and your Severna Park chiropractor at Back And Neck Care Center pursue
non-surgical means - like Severna Park spinal manipulation and
mobilization which are shown to positively affect the water flow
and diffusion into the disc, keeping it healthy (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 demonstrates that conservative care is better. At 6 months post-care – surgical or
non-surgical – no significant differences are reported 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 suffered 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 evidence to
recommend surgical or non-surgical care to lumbar spinal stenosis
sufferers. (2) Back And Neck Care Center offers that a trial of 30
days seeking 50% improvement for most Severna Park back
pain patients with research-documented chiropractic care following the
protocols of the Cox Technic System of Care. Back And Neck Care Center is a reasonable
place to start!
Early Improvement Under Care
Those spinal stenosis patients who display 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) Back And Neck Care Center seeks
Severna Park pain relief as early as possible, and the treatment plan is geared
that way. With some patients,
a small number of patients, Back And Neck Care Center may consult a Severna Park spinal stenosis patient on a daily basis
in the beginning. Back And Neck Care Center takes good care of
our Severna Park lumbar spinal stenosis patients!
And finally Back And Neck Care Center 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 direct
our Cox Technic system of spine pain management and lumbar spinal stenosis.
