Two Rivers Lumbar Spinal Stenosis Relief at Lakeshore Chiropractic

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 reward us with conditions like spinal stenosis. There’s no problem, though! Chiropractic care is a solution for many spinal stenosis pain patients. Lakeshore 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 be the result of a variety of issues like a disc herniation, disc bulge or contained disc, synovial cyst. Anything that shrinks the spinal canal area that causes reduced space for the spinal nerves and other elements may cause 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 Two Rivers chiropractor at Lakeshore Chiropractic seek non-surgical means - like Two Rivers 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 widen the spinal canal area.

Surgical vs Non-Surgical Care 

A comparison of surgical and conservative treatments of spinal stenosis demonstrates that conservative care is more positive. At 6 months post-care – surgical or non-surgical – no significant differences are noted 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 evidence to endorse surgical or non-surgical care to lumbar spinal stenosis sufferers.
