Stenosis. If you are of a certain age, you likely
know spinal stenosis. You experienced its hurting
results yourself or someone close to you does. Spinal
stenosis gives rise to back pain, neck pain, arm pain
and/or leg pain (sciatica). It’s no fun!
No magic pill heals it or prevents it. But chiropractic
care using the gentle Cox® Technic flexion distraction
spinal manipulation system may relieve it, slowly
and steadily. Once on the other side of spinal stenosis’
chiropractic patients are well educated as to do what
they can to reduce the odds of future episodes,
armed with exercises, diet tips, daily activities’ alteration
ideas, and the experience that Manahawkin
chiropractic care at Manahawkin Chiropractic Center is effective.
COX® TECHNIC FOR SPINAL STENOSIS
One of the original written and peer-review
published papers by Dr. Cox, developer of Cox® Technic flexion distraction, discussed stenosis. (1) More recently, a comparison study of flexion distraction treatment to
conservative treatment for patients with spinal stenosis showed
that flexion distraction spinal manipulation was more effective
for pain reduction and disability improvement. (2)
Another study showed that Cox® flexion distraction manipulation
resulted in pain improvement by 76% and disability by 73%.
(3) Today, one of the most recent published papers
indicates that there is evidence that
chiropractic care is potentially beneficial for
patients experiencing pain of lumbar
spinal stenosis. It additionally highlights
that chiropractic treatments of spinal stenosis are most often
flexion-distraction manipulation. (4) That is true at
Manahawkin Chiropractic Center! Manahawkin spinal stenosis patients find
reprieve with our Manahawkin chiropractic services.
FLEXION DISTRACTION FOR STENOSIS-RELATED NEUROGENIC
Neurogenic claudication frequently accompanies lumbar spinal stenosis, causing cramping leg pain for
its Manahawkin sufferers. Researchers discovered that treatments two times a week including manual therapy like lumbar spine flexion distraction (generic term for
Cox® Technic spinal manipulation), soft tissue and neural mobilization,
chiropractic spinal manipulation, and muscle stretching along with structured home-based exercises, and instruction of self-management
strategies lead to improved consequences
(pain, disability, walking ability, treatment satisfaction). (5)
Manahawkin Chiropractic Center follows a similar chiropractic care system with
our Manahawkin spinal stenosis patients. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center treats the
whole person, not only the pain.
