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 area.

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.
