Chiropractic alleviates 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 compensate us with conditions like spinal
stenosis. There’s no problem, though! Chiropractic care is a solution
for many spinal stenosis pain patients. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center 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. Any issue that shrinks
the spinal canal area that causes
less 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 Paramus chiropractor at Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center offer
non-surgical means - like Paramus spinal manipulation and
mobilization which are shown to keep the
disc healthy by improved water flow and diffusion (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 shows 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 had 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
endorse surgical or non-surgical care to lumbar spinal stenosis
sufferers. (2) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center submits that a trial of 30
days looking for 50% improvement for most Paramus back
pain patients with research-documented chiropractic care following the
protocols of the Cox Technic System of Care. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center 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) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center looks for
Paramus pain relief as early as possible, and the treatment plan is geared
that way. In some cases,
a small percent of patients, Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center may see a Paramus spinal stenosis patient daily
at the start of care. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center takes good care of
our Paramus lumbar spinal stenosis patients!
And finally Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center 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 is well defined in the algorithms of decision making that direct
our Cox Technic system of spine pain management and lumbar spinal stenosis.
