Chiropractic relieves 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 compensate us with conditions like spinal
stenosis. There is no problem, though! Chiropractic care is a solution
for many spinal stenosis pain patients. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation 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 result from
a variety of issues like a disc herniation, disc bulge or
contained disc, synovial cyst. Anything that shrinks
the spinal canal area that allows
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 Baton Rouge chiropractor at Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation pursue
non-surgical means - like Baton Rouge 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:
diminish spinal stenosis and open the spinal canal
Surgical vs Non-Surgical Care
A comparison of surgical and conservative treatments of
spinal stenosis explains 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 suffered 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 definitive evidence to
recommend surgical or non-surgical care to lumbar spinal stenosis
sufferers. (2) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation submits that a trial of 30
days looking for 50% improvement for most Baton Rouge back
pain patients with research-documented chiropractic care following the
protocols of the Cox Technic System of Care. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation is a reasonable
place to start!
Early Improvement Under Care
Those spinal stenosis patients who show 33% to
50% improvement in pain at 2 weeks of care have better
odds of 6 to 7 times greater to exhibit 50% improvement
at their 6 months’ disability follow up. (3) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation seeks
Baton Rouge pain relief as early as possible, and the treatment plan is established with this in mind. With some patients,
a small percent of patients, Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation may see a Baton Rouge spinal stenosis patient daily
at the start of care. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation takes good care of
our Baton Rouge lumbar spinal stenosis patients!
And finally Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation 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 as needed. (4) It’s well defined in the algorithms of decision making that direct
our Cox Technic system of spine pain management and lumbar spinal stenosis.
