Chiropractic Treatment Plan With Cycling for Lumbar Spinal Stenosis Pain Relief

Cycling. It’s fun. It’s relaxing. It is a sport all ages can enjoy. It is a method to get relief from spinal stenosis related back pain. Spinal Care Clinic is glad to suggest an gratifying exercise option with Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic back pain patients for more Burlington and Hamilton back pain relief.


Lumbar spinal stenosis is the narrowing of the spinal canal area in the low back. Such narrowing results from spinal conditions like degenerative disc disease and disc herniation. Many older Burlington and Hamilton 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. Going to the grocery store comes to be a delight just to lean forward over the grocery cart as it relieves pain! Why? Leaning forward flexes the spine and opens the spinal canal space thus easing Burlington and Hamilton back pain.


Researchers report that flexion-based training like cycling really reduced back and enhanced function and quality of life in older people with chronic low back pain. (1) Just getting oxygen flowing 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! One study explored how cycling affected older back pain patients. Their average age was 70.9 years. Some were uneasy of cycling due to fear of pain and fatigue, thinking the bike was too large, believing they didn’t have time to cycle, and not being motivated to participate in cycling. (Sound familiar? We can all be like that at times! Burlington and Hamilton folks just have to schedule time to exercise no matter our age!) Those who let go of those concerns and cycled were pleasantly satisfied with their clinical improvement (reduced leg pain and disability) and found that the bicycle was not bad at all. (1) You never know until you try! Spinal Care Clinic urges our Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic patients to try new things to assist with their Burlington and Hamilton back pain relief.


Something new that many Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic patients do not fancy trying is back surgery. When the pain is bad, a back surgery may appear like a solution. In a study done at a spine surgery center, patients with lumbar spinal stenosis and low back pain participate in a 4 months’ training program using a stationary bicycle. They cycle at about 70% of maximal capacity. Almost 50% of the patients improved so much that they did not need spinal surgery. (2) Now that is a benefit Burlington and Hamilton lumbar spinal stenosis patients desire!
