Manahawkin Back Pain Relief via Chiropractic Treatment Plan of Manipulation and Exercise

A new clinical trial is starting that will study the effectiveness of a 6-week specific rehab program blending education and exercises on walking capacity in patients with lumbar spinal stenosis with neurogenic claudication. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center knows these Manahawkin spinal pain conditions quite well…and offers a relieving treatment plan of Cox® Technic spinal manipulation and mobilization with exercise!


The aim of this described study is to investigate whether the addition of an exercise program to an educational program might enhance walking capacity in patients with lumbar spinal stenosis with neurogenic claudication. Being a randomized controlled clinical trial, 60 participants will be randomly assigned to either the intervention or control group. The intervention group will get an educational program and an exercise program, while the control group will only receive the educational program. The main outcome measure is walking capacity, while the secondary outcome measures are pain intensity, disability level, and quality of life. (1)  Manahawkin Chiropractic Center knows our Manahawkin spinal stenosis patients are very concerned about these outcomes!


Lumbar spinal stenosis with neurogenic claudication is a condition that causes narrowing of the spinal canal in the lower back region, which then puts pressure on the nerves. This can result in pain, numbness, and weakness in the legs and buttocks. In severe cases, it can also make walking quite difficult. The condition is most common in people over the age of 50. These are just the people in Manahawkin who need to keep (or at least start) exercising!


The particular exercises that will be utilized in this trial are designed to enhance walking capacity by stretching and strengthening the muscles surrounding the spine. The hope is that by performing these exercises on a regular basis, patients will feel less pain and disability and have an improved quality of life.


The control group in this trial will only receive an educational program about their condition and how to control it. While education is valuable, it is not usually enough on its own to deliver significant relief from symptoms. That is why the addition of an exercise program is so important. It involves the back pain patient in his or her relief! Listen to this PODCAST with Dr. Michael McMurray on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson as he details The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management for lumbar spinal stenosis.
