Chiropractic relieves conditions like
spinal stenosis. Spinal stenosis is all around us 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 is no problem, though! Chiropractic care is a solution
for many spinal stenosis pain patients. Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology 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 resulting in
reduced space for the spinal nerves and other elements may bring
about spinal stenosis and pain. Surgeons and medical device companies
look for surgical means to reduce spinal stenosis and open the
spinal canal area. Conservative care back pain specialists like
chiropractors and your Plymouth chiropractor at Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology seek
non-surgical means - like Plymouth spinal manipulation and
mobilization which are reported to positively affect the water flow
and diffusion into the disc, keeping it healthy (1) - to do the same thing:
reduce spinal stenosis and widen the spinal canal
Surgical vs Non-Surgical Care
A comparison of surgical and conservative treatments of
spinal stenosis shows that conservative care leads
in outcomes. 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 do not
feel that there is conclusive evidence to
recommend surgical or non-surgical care to lumbar spinal stenosis
sufferers. (2) Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology offers that a trial of 30
days seeking 50% improvement for most Plymouth back
pain patients with research-documented chiropractic care following the
protocols of the Cox Technic System of Care. Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology is a good
place to start!
Early Improvement Under Care
Those spinal stenosis patients who display 33% to
50% improvement in pain at 2 weeks of care have better
odds of 6 to 7 times greater to have 50% improvement
at their 6 months’ disability follow up. (3) Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology seeks
Plymouth pain relief as early as possible, and the treatment plan is established with this in mind. With some patients,
a small number of patients, Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology may see a Plymouth spinal stenosis patient on a daily basis
in the beginning. Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology takes good care of
our Plymouth lumbar spinal stenosis patients!
And finally Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology relies on its experienced
clinical judgment and evidence of a patient’s not improving as expected to
order more imaging or schedule a surgical consultation if needed. (4) It is well defined in the algorithms of decision making that direct
our Cox Technic system of spine pain management and lumbar spinal stenosis.
