Chiropractic eases 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’s no problem, though! Chiropractic care is a solution
for many spinal stenosis pain patients. Manahawkin Chiropractic 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. Any condition that narrows
the spinal canal area that causes
reduced space for the spinal nerves and other elements may bring
about spinal stenosis and pain. Surgeons and medical device companies
seek surgical means to reduce spinal stenosis and open the
spinal canal area. Conservative care back pain specialists like
chiropractors and your Manahawkin chiropractor at Manahawkin Chiropractic Center seek
non-surgical means - like Manahawkin spinal manipulation and
mobilization which reportedly keep the
disc healthy by improved water flow and diffusion (1) - to do the same thing:
reduce spinal stenosis and open the spinal canal
Surgical vs Non-Surgical Care
A comparison of surgical and conservative treatments of
spinal stenosis explains that conservative care is better. 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 underwent 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 evidence to
endorse surgical or non-surgical care to lumbar spinal stenosis
sufferers. (2) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center suggests that a trial of 30
days looking for 50% improvement for most Manahawkin back
pain patients with research-documented chiropractic care following the
protocols of the Cox Technic System of Care. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center is a reasonable
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 better
odds of 6 to 7 times higher to exhibit 50% improvement
at their 6 months’ disability follow up. (3) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center seeks
Manahawkin pain relief as early as possible, and the treatment plan is geared
that way. With some patients,
a small number of patients, Manahawkin Chiropractic Center may visit
with a Manahawkin spinal stenosis patient on a daily basis
in the beginning. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center takes good care of
our Manahawkin lumbar spinal stenosis patients!
And lastly Manahawkin Chiropractic 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 is well defined in the algorithms of decision making that direct
our Cox Technic system of spine pain management and lumbar spinal stenosis.
