Chiropractic alleviates conditions like spinal stenosis. Spinal stenosis is all around us today. Why? An aging population.

Spine & Sports Rehab 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. Anything that narrows the spinal canal area that causes less space for the spinal nerves and other elements may cause 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 Baton Rouge chiropractor at Spine & Sports Rehab Center pursue non-surgical means - like Baton Rouge spinal manipulation and mobilization which reportedly positively affect the water flow and diffusion into the disc, keeping it healthy (1) - to do the same thing: reduce spinal stenosis and open the spinal canal area.

Surgical vs Non-Surgical Care 

A comparison of surgical and conservative treatments of spinal stenosis demonstrates that conservative care leads in outcomes. 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 do not feel that there is conclusive proof to recommend surgical or non-surgical care to lumbar spinal stenosis sufferers.
