McHenry Lumbar Spinal Stenosis Relief at Spengel Chiropractic

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 area.

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.
