Spengel Chiropractic bases its care on some well documented details in the spine research. McHenry back surgery patients have more complications from treatment than non-surgical patients for lumbar spine stenosis. Back surgery resulted in no significant differences the first 6 post-surgical months compared with conservative treatment. Disability scores were higher for surgical patients at 12 and 24 months. (1) Another review of spinal manipulation and mobilization effects on the spine and its painful discs reported that there is a change in water flow in the disc to keep it healthy. (2) What’s a McHenry spinal stenosis patients to do? The treatment plan is not clear or the same for every patient with spinal stenosis. There are many influencing elements affecting this decision, but with non-surgical care, the complication rates and downtime from life are not as high.

TIP OF THE MONTH: Vitamin D and Calcium Prevent Falls

As we age, falls are concerning as are the fractures that may ensue. Fall prevention strategies often are around exercise, balance/proprioception, and addressing depression and dizziness. Nutrition might be another helpful factor! Supplementation with vitamin D and calcium significantly lessens the risk of a fall. Taking D2 or D3 alone did not have such an effect. (3) Simple enough! Any little bit will help!
