Chiropractic Treatment Plan With Cycling for Lumbar Spinal Stenosis Pain Relief

Cycling. It is fun. It is relaxing. It’s a sport (most!) anyone can enjoy. It is a method to get relief from spinal stenosis related back pain. Back And Neck Care Center is glad to suggest an gratifying exercise option with Severna Park chiropractic back pain patients for additional Severna Park back pain relief.


Lumbar spinal stenosis is the narrowing of the spinal canal area in the low back. Such narrowing results from issues like degenerative disc disease and disc herniation. Many older Severna Park back pain sufferers experience lumbar spinal stenosis. As we get older, our discs lose nutrition and height - more so for some of us than others - which leads to that narrowing. Grocery shopping turns out to be a joy just to lean forward over the grocery cart as it feels good! Why? Leaning forward flexes the spine and widens the spinal canal space thereby reducing Severna Park back pain.


Researchers find that flexion-based training like cycling really reduced back and improved function and quality of life in older people with chronic low back pain. (1) Improving the oxygen flow is a good thing to improve anyone’s outlook on life!


For older patients with lumbar spinal stenosis pain that’s continued for years, an improved quality of life is welcome! In one study of the effect of cycling on back pain in older patients with spinal stenosis, patients were 70.9 years of age. Some were apprehensive of cycling due to fear of pain and fatigue, thinking the bike was too big, feeling they did not have time to cycle, and not being motivated to participate in cycling. (Sounds like all of us sometimes! Severna Park folks just have to schedule time to exercise no matter how old we are!) Those who got over those concerns and cycled were pleasantly satisfied with their clinical improvement (reduced leg pain and disability) and discovered that the bicycle was easy to use. (1) You never know until you try! Back And Neck Care Center supports our Severna Park chiropractic patients to attempt novel things to help with their Severna Park back pain relief.


Something new that many Severna Park chiropractic patients do not fancy trying is back surgery. When the pain is really uncomfortable, a back surgery sounds like a solution. In a study conducted at a spine surgery center, patients with lumbar spinal stenosis and low back pain participate in a 4 months’ training program riding a stationary bicycle. They cycle at about 70% of maximal capacity. Nearly 50% of the patients got better so much that they did not need spinal surgery. (2) Now that is a benefit Severna Park lumbar spinal stenosis patients desire!
