Baton Rouge Back Pain Relief via Chiropractic Treatment Plan of Manipulation and Exercise

A new clinical trial is underway to study the effectiveness of a 6-week specific rehabilitation program combining education and exercises on walking capacity in those who have lumbar spinal stenosis with neurogenic claudication. Spine & Sports Rehab Center knows these Baton Rouge spinal pain conditions very 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 adding an exercise program to an educational program might improve walking capacity in sufferers with lumbar spinal stenosis with neurogenic claudication. This is a randomized controlled clinical trial with 60 participants who will be randomly allocated to either the control group or the intervention group. The intervention group will get an educational program plus 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)  Spine & Sports Rehab Center knows our Baton Rouge spinal stenosis patients are quite concerned about these outcomes!


Lumbar spinal stenosis with neurogenic claudication is a spinal issue that causes narrowing of the spinal canal in the low back area, resulting in pressure on the nerves. This can result in pain, numbness, and weakness in the legs and buttocks. In severe cases, it can also cause difficulty walking. The condition is most common in people over 50 years old. These are just the folks in Baton Rouge who need to keep (or at least begin) exercising!


The specific exercises that will be employed in this study are designed to enhance walking capacity by stretching and strengthening the muscles surrounding the spine. The hope is that by performing these exercises regularly, patients will feel less pain and disability and have a better quality of life.


The control group in this trial will only get an educational program about their condition and how to control it. While education is important, it is not usually enough on its own to provide significant relief from symptoms. That is why the addition of an exercise program is so important. It includes 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.
