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 compensate us with conditions like spinal
stenosis. There is no problem, though! Chiropractic care is a solution
for many spinal stenosis pain patients. Soft Health and Healing Clinic 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
a variety of issues like a disc herniation, disc bulge or
contained disc, synovial cyst. Any condition 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
seek surgical means to reduce spinal stenosis and open the
spinal canal space12. Conservative care back pain specialists like
chiropractors and your Brooks chiropractor at Soft Health and Healing Clinic seek
non-surgical means - like Brooks 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 shows that conservative care leads
in outcomes. At 6 months post-care – surgical or
non-surgical – no significant differences are presented in
the spinal stenosis patients. At 12 and 24 months post-care, the surgical
spinal stenosis patients report higher disability scores. Surgical
spinal stenosis patients suffered 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 decisive evidence to
endorse surgical or non-surgical care to lumbar spinal stenosis
sufferers. (2) Soft Health and Healing Clinic offers that a trial of 30
days seeking 50% improvement for most Brooks back
pain patients with research-documented chiropractic care following the
protocols of the Cox Technic System of Care. Soft Health and Healing Clinic 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 improved
odds of 6 to 7 times higher to exhibit 50% improvement
at their 6 months’ disability follow up. (3) Soft Health and Healing Clinic seeks
Brooks pain relief as early as possible, and the treatment plan is geared
that way. With some patients,
a small number of patients, Soft Health and Healing Clinic may consult a Brooks spinal stenosis patient daily
in the beginning. Soft Health and Healing Clinic takes good care of
our Brooks lumbar spinal stenosis patients!
And lastly Soft Health and Healing Clinic 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 is fully
outlined in the algorithms of decision making that direct
our Cox Technic system of spine pain management and lumbar spinal stenosis.
