Chiropractic eases conditions like
spinal stenosis. Spinal stenosis is all around us today. Why?
An aging population. We are all aging, and when we get to a
certain age, our bodies compensate us with conditions like spinal
stenosis. There’s no problem, though! Chiropractic care is a solution
for many spinal stenosis pain patients. Spengel Chiropractic 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 result from
any of a number of issues like a disc herniation, disc bulge or
contained disc, synovial cyst. Any condition that shrinks
the spinal canal area that allows
less space for the spinal nerves and other elements may bring
about spinal stenosis and pain. Surgeons and medical device companies
seek surgical means to reduce spinal stenosis and open the
spinal canal area. Conservative care back pain specialists like
chiropractors and your McHenry chiropractor at Spengel Chiropractic pursue
non-surgical means - like McHenry spinal manipulation and
mobilization which reportedly keep the
disc healthy by improved water flow and diffusion (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 report higher disability scores. Surgical
spinal stenosis patients underwent 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 proof to
endorse surgical or non-surgical care to lumbar spinal stenosis
sufferers. (2) Spengel Chiropractic submits that a trial of 30
days seeking 50% improvement for most McHenry back
pain patients with research-documented chiropractic care following the
protocols of the Cox Technic System of Care. Spengel Chiropractic 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 better
odds of 6 to 7 times greater to exhibit 50% improvement
at their 6 months’ disability follow up. (3) Spengel Chiropractic seeks
McHenry pain relief as early as possible, and the treatment plan is established with this in mind. In some cases,
a small percent of patients, Spengel Chiropractic may see a McHenry spinal stenosis patient daily
in the beginning. Spengel Chiropractic takes good care of
our McHenry lumbar spinal stenosis patients!
And finally Spengel Chiropractic 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 as needed. (4) It is fully
outlined in the algorithms of decision making that guide
our Cox Technic system of spine pain management and lumbar spinal stenosis.
