Chiropractic relieves conditions like
spinal stenosis. Spinal stenosis is everywhere today. Why?
An aging population. We are all aging, and when we get to a
certain age, our bodies compensate us with conditions like spinal
stenosis. There is no problem, though! Chiropractic care is a solution
for many spinal stenosis pain patients. Spinal Care Clinic 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
offer surgical means to reduce spinal stenosis and open the
spinal canal area. Conservative care back pain specialists like
chiropractors and your Burlington and Hamilton chiropractor at Spinal Care Clinic offer
non-surgical means - like Burlington and Hamilton 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 shows that conservative care is more positive. At 6 months post-care – surgical or
non-surgical – no significant differences are presented 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 do not
feel that there is decisive proof to
endorse surgical or non-surgical care to lumbar spinal stenosis
sufferers. (2) Spinal Care Clinic offers that a trial of 30
days looking for 50% improvement for most Burlington and Hamilton back
pain patients with research-documented chiropractic care following the
protocols of the Cox Technic System of Care. Spinal Care Clinic is a good
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 improved
odds of 6 to 7 times higher to have 50% improvement
at their 6 months’ disability follow up. (3) Spinal Care Clinic seeks
Burlington and Hamilton pain relief as early as possible, and the treatment plan is established with this in mind. In some cases,
a small percent of patients, Spinal Care Clinic may visit
with a Burlington and Hamilton spinal stenosis patient on a daily basis
at the start of care. Spinal Care Clinic takes good care of
our Burlington and Hamilton lumbar spinal stenosis patients!
And finally Spinal Care Clinic 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’s fully
outlined in the algorithms of decision making that lead
our Cox Technic system of spine pain management and lumbar spinal stenosis.
