Chiropractic eases conditions like
spinal stenosis. Spinal stenosis is all around us today. Why?
An aging population. We are all aging, and when we achieve a
certain age, our bodies reward us with conditions like spinal
stenosis. There is no problem, though! Chiropractic care is a solution
for many spinal stenosis pain patients. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR 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 issue 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
offer surgical means to reduce spinal stenosis and open the
spinal canal space12. Conservative care back pain specialists like
chiropractors and your Colorado Springs chiropractor at The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR seek
non-surgical means - like Colorado Springs spinal manipulation and
mobilization which are shown to keep the
disc healthy by improved water flow and diffusion (1) - to do the same thing:
diminish spinal stenosis and widen the spinal canal
Surgical vs Non-Surgical Care
A comparison of surgical and conservative treatments of
spinal stenosis demonstrates that conservative care is more positive. At 6 months post-care – surgical or
non-surgical – no significant differences are reported in
the spinal stenosis patients. At 12 and 24 months post-care, the surgical
spinal stenosis patients had higher disability scores. Surgical
spinal stenosis patients experienced 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 conclusive proof to
endorse surgical or non-surgical care to lumbar spinal stenosis
sufferers. (2) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR suggests that a trial of 30
days looking for 50% improvement for most Colorado Springs back
pain patients with research-documented chiropractic care following the
protocols of the Cox Technic System of Care. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR is a reasonable
place to start!
Early Improvement Under Care
Those spinal stenosis patients who display 33% to
50% improvement in pain at 2 weeks of care have increased
odds of 6 to 7 times higher to exhibit 50% improvement
at their 6 months’ disability follow up. (3) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR looks for
Colorado Springs pain relief as early as possible, and the treatment plan is established with this in mind. In some cases,
a small number of patients, The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR may visit
with a Colorado Springs spinal stenosis patient daily
at the start of care. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR takes good care of
our Colorado Springs lumbar spinal stenosis patients!
And lastly The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR 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 as needed. (4) It is fully
outlined in the algorithms of decision making that lead
