Chiropractic alleviates 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’s no problem, though! Chiropractic care is a solution
for many spinal stenosis pain patients. 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
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. (2) Spine & Sports Rehab Center suggests that a trial of 30
days seeking 50% improvement for most Baton Rouge back
pain patients with research-documented chiropractic care following the
protocols of the Cox Technic System of Care. Spine & Sports Rehab Center is a good
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 improved
odds of 6 to 7 times greater to exhibit 50% improvement
at their 6 months’ disability follow up. (3) Spine & Sports Rehab Center seeks
Baton Rouge pain relief as early as possible, and the treatment plan is established with this in mind. With some patients,
a small percent of patients, Spine & Sports Rehab Center may consult a Baton Rouge spinal stenosis patient daily
in the beginning. Spine & Sports Rehab Center takes good care of
our Baton Rouge lumbar spinal stenosis patients!
And finally Spine & Sports Rehab Center 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 if needed. (4) It’s fully
