Stenosis. If you are of a certain age, you probably
know spinal stenosis. You have felt its hurting
results yourself or someone near you does. Spinal
stenosis results in back pain, neck pain, arm pain
and/or leg pain (sciatica). It’s not much fun at all!
No magic pill cures it or stops it. But chiropractic
care using the gentle Cox® Technic flexion distraction
spinal manipulation system may relieve it, slowly
and bit by bit. After the spinal stenosis pain is better, Two Rivers
chiropractic patients are well educated as to do what
they can to decrease the odds of future incidents,
prepared with exercises, diet tips, daily activities’ modification
ideas, and the experience that Two Rivers
chiropractic care at Lakeshore Chiropractic 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) More recently, a comparison study of flexion distraction treatment to
conservative treatment for patients with spinal stenosis revealed
that flexion distraction spinal manipulation was more effective
for pain reduction and disability recovery. (2)
Another study presented that Cox® flexion distraction manipulation
brought about pain improvement by 76% and disability by 73%.
(3) Today, one of the newest published reports
indicates that there is indication that
chiropractic care is possibly useful for
patients enduring pain due to lumbar
spinal stenosis. It further highlights
that chiropractic treatments of spinal stenosis are most often
flexion-distraction manipulation. (4) That is true at
Lakeshore Chiropractic! Two Rivers spinal stenosis patients obtain
relief with our Two Rivers chiropractic services.
FLEXION DISTRACTION FOR STENOSIS-RELATED NEUROGENIC
Neurogenic claudication often accompanies lumbar spinal stenosis, producing cramping leg pain for
its Two Rivers sufferers. Researchers discovered that treatments two times a week involving 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 as well
as structured home-based exercises, and instruction of self-management
strategies lead to improved outcomes
(pain, disability, walking ability, treatment satisfaction). (5)
Lakeshore Chiropractic follows a similar chiropractic care system with
our Two Rivers spinal stenosis patients. Lakeshore Chiropractic treats the
whole person, not just the pain.
