Stenosis. If you are a bit older, you probably
are familiar with spinal stenosis. You experienced its painful
results yourself or someone near you does. Spinal
stenosis gives rise to back pain, neck pain, arm pain
and/or leg pain (sciatica). It’s not much fun at all!
No magic pill heals it or stops it. But chiropractic
care using the gentle Cox® Technic flexion distraction
spinal manipulation system may ease it, slowly
and bit by bit. After the spinal stenosis pain is better, Brooks
chiropractic patients are more fully equipped to do what
they can to decrease the odds of future incidents,
prepared with exercises, diet tips, daily activities’ alteration
ideas, and the experience that Brooks
chiropractic care at Soft Health and Healing Clinic is effective.
COX® TECHNIC FOR SPINAL STENOSIS
One of the first ever written and peer-review
published papers by Dr. Cox, developer of Cox® Technic flexion distraction, discussed stenosis. (1) Lately, a comparison study of flexion distraction treatment to
conservative treatment for patients with spinal stenosis showed
that flexion distraction spinal manipulation was more effective
for pain decrease and disability improvement. (2)
Another study showed that Cox® flexion distraction manipulation
brought about pain improvement by 76% and disability by 73%.
(3) Today, one of the most recent published papers
points out that there is evidence that
chiropractic care is possibly beneficial for
patients enduring pain due to lumbar
spinal stenosis. It further highlights
that chiropractic treatments of spinal stenosis are most often
flexion-distraction manipulation. (4) That’s true at
Soft Health and Healing Clinic! Brooks spinal stenosis patients get
reprieve with our Brooks chiropractic services.
FLEXION DISTRACTION FOR STENOSIS-RELATED NEUROGENIC
Neurogenic claudication frequently accompanies lumbar spinal stenosis, causing cramping leg pain for
its Brooks sufferers. Researchers found that treatments two times a week consisting
of manual therapy like lumbar spine flexion distraction (generic term for
Cox® Technic spinal manipulation), soft tissue and neural mobilization,
chiropractic spinal manipulation, and muscle stretching along with structured home-based exercises, and instruction of self-management
strategies resulted in improved outcomes
(pain, disability, walking ability, treatment satisfaction). (5)
Soft Health and Healing Clinic offers a similar chiropractic care system with
our Brooks spinal stenosis patients. Soft Health and Healing Clinic treats the
whole person, not only the pain.
