Chiropractic alleviates conditions like
spinal stenosis. Spinal stenosis is everywhere 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. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation 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
reduced space for the spinal nerves and other elements may cause spinal stenosis and pain. Surgeons and medical device companies
offer surgical means to reduce spinal stenosis and open the
spinal canal area. Conservative care back pain specialists like
chiropractors and your Carrolltown chiropractor at Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation offer
non-surgical means - like Carrolltown spinal manipulation and
mobilization which are reported to keep the
disc healthy by improved water flow and diffusion (1) - to do the same thing:
diminish spinal stenosis and open the spinal canal
Surgical vs Non-Surgical Care
A comparison of surgical and conservative treatments of
spinal stenosis explains that conservative care is better. 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 experienced 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) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation suggests that a trial of 30
days looking for 50% improvement for most Carrolltown back
pain patients with research-documented chiropractic care following the
protocols of the Cox Technic System of Care. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation 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 increased
odds of 6 to 7 times greater to have 50% improvement
at their 6 months’ disability follow up. (3) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation looks for
Carrolltown pain relief as early as possible, and the treatment plan is established with this in mind. With some patients,
a small percent of patients, Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation may see a Carrolltown spinal stenosis patient daily
at the start of care. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation takes good care of
our Carrolltown lumbar spinal stenosis patients!
And finally Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation 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’s fully
outlined in the algorithms of decision making that lead
our Cox Technic system of spine pain management and lumbar spinal stenosis.
