Chiropractic Treatment Plan With Cycling for Lumbar Spinal Stenosis Pain Relief

Cycling. It’s fun. It is relaxing. It’s a sport (most!) anyone can enjoy. It is a way to get relief from spinal stenosis related back pain. Lakeshore Chiropractic is glad to share an gratifying exercise option with Two Rivers chiropractic back pain patients for added Two Rivers back pain relief.


Lumbar spinal stenosis is the narrowing of the spinal canal area in the low back. Such narrowing results from issues like degenerative disc disease and disc herniation. Many older Two Rivers back pain sufferers experience lumbar spinal stenosis. As we get older, our discs lose nutrition and height - more so for some of us than others - which leads to that narrowing. Grocery shopping becomes a delight just to lean forward over the grocery cart as it relieves pain! Why? Leaning forward flexes the spine and widens the spinal canal space thereby easing Two Rivers back pain.


Researchers report that flexion-based training like cycling really reduced back and enhanced function and quality of life in older people with chronic low back pain. (1) Improving the oxygen flow is a good thing to improve anyone’s outlook on life!


For older patients with lumbar spinal stenosis pain that has continued for years, an improved quality of life is welcome! One study explored how cycling affected older back pain patients. Their average age was 70.9 years. Some were apprehensive of cycling due to fear of pain and fatigue, feeling the bike was too large, believing they did not have time to cycle, and not being motivated to participate in cycling. (Sounds like all of us at times! Two Rivers folks do need to schedule time to exercise no matter how old we are!) Those who let go of those issues and cycled were pleasantly satisfied with their clinical improvement (reduced leg pain and disability) and realized that the bicycle was simple. (1) You never know until you try! Lakeshore Chiropractic urges our Two Rivers chiropractic patients to attempt new things to assist with their Two Rivers back pain relief.


Something new that many Two Rivers chiropractic patients don’t fancy trying is back surgery. When the pain is really uncomfortable, a back surgery seems like a solution. In a study conducted at a spine surgery center, patients with lumbar spinal stenosis and low back pain participate in a 4 months’ training program riding a stationary bicycle. They cycle at about 70% of maximal capacity. Almost half of the patients improved so much that they did not need spinal surgery. (2) Now that is an advantage Two Rivers lumbar spinal stenosis patients desire!
