Preston Lumbar Spinal Stenosis Relief at Chiropractic Associates

Chiropractic alleviates conditions like spinal stenosis. Spinal stenosis is all around us 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’s no problem, though! Chiropractic care is a solution for many spinal stenosis pain patients. Chiropractic Associates 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 that results in less space for the spinal nerves and other elements may bring about spinal stenosis and pain. Surgeons and medical device companies look for surgical means to reduce spinal stenosis and open the spinal canal area. Conservative care back pain specialists like chiropractors and your Preston chiropractor at Chiropractic Associates pursue non-surgical means - like Preston spinal manipulation and mobilization which reportedly 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 area.

Surgical vs Non-Surgical Care 

A comparison of surgical and conservative treatments of spinal stenosis demonstrates that conservative care leads in outcomes. 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 don’t feel that there is decisive evidence to recommend surgical or non-surgical care to lumbar spinal stenosis sufferers.
