Stenosis. If you are of a certain age, you probably
know spinal stenosis. You experienced its hurting
effects yourself or someone close to you does. Spinal
stenosis gives rise to back pain, neck pain, arm pain
and/or leg pain (sciatica). It is not much fun at all!
No magic pill heals it or stops it. But chiropractic
care incorporating the gentle Cox® Technic flexion distraction
spinal manipulation system may ease it, slowly
and bit by bit. Once on the other side of spinal stenosis’
chiropractic patients are more fully equipped to do what
they can to decrease the odds of future incidents,
prepared with exercises, diet tips, daily activities’ alteration
tips, and the experience that Carrolltown
chiropractic care at Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation is effective.
COX® TECHNIC FOR SPINAL STENOSIS
One of the original written and peer-review
published papers by Dr. Cox, developer of Cox® Technic flexion distraction, discussed stenosis. (1) Lately, a comparison study of flexion distraction treatment to
conservative treatment for patients with spinal stenosis showed
that flexion distraction spinal manipulation was more valuable
for pain reduction and disability recovery. (2)
Another study showed that Cox® flexion distraction manipulation
resulted in pain improvement by 76% and disability by 73%.
(3) Today, one of the newest published papers
indicates that there is indication that
chiropractic care is possibly useful for
patients suffering with lumbar
spinal stenosis. It further highlights
that chiropractic treatments of spinal stenosis are most often
flexion-distraction manipulation. (4) That is true at
Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation! Carrolltown spinal stenosis patients find
relief with our Carrolltown chiropractic services.
FLEXION DISTRACTION FOR STENOSIS-RELATED NEUROGENIC
Neurogenic claudication often accompanies lumbar spinal stenosis, producing cramping leg pain for
its Carrolltown sufferers. Researchers discovered that treatments two times a week including manual therapy like lumbar spine flexion distraction (generic term for
Cox® Technic spinal manipulation), soft tissue and neural mobilization,
chiropractic spinal manipulation, and muscle stretching along with structured home-based exercises, and instruction of self-management
strategies resulted in improved outcomes
(pain, disability, walking ability, treatment satisfaction). (5)
Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation follows a similar chiropractic care system with
our Carrolltown spinal stenosis patients. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation treats the
whole patient, not just the pain.
