Carrolltown Lumbar Spinal Stenosis Relief at Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation

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: reduce spinal stenosis and open the spinal canal area.

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.

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.
