Chiropractic eases 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’s no problem, though! Chiropractic care is a solution
for many spinal stenosis pain patients. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn 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
any of a number of issues like a disc herniation, disc bulge or
contained disc, synovial cyst. Any issue that narrows
the spinal canal area that causes
less space for the spinal nerves and other elements may cause spinal stenosis and pain. Surgeons and medical device companies
offer surgical means to reduce spinal stenosis and open the
spinal canal area. Conservative care back pain specialists like
chiropractors and your Ashburn chiropractor at Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn offer
non-surgical means - like Ashburn 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 open the spinal canal
Surgical vs Non-Surgical Care
A comparison of surgical and conservative treatments of
spinal stenosis explains that conservative care leads
in outcomes. At 6 months post-care – surgical or
non-surgical – no significant differences are reported 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 experienced 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 conclusive proof to
recommend surgical or non-surgical care to lumbar spinal stenosis
sufferers. (2) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn submits that a trial of 30
days seeking 50% improvement for most Ashburn back
pain patients with research-documented chiropractic care following the
protocols of the Cox Technic System of Care. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn is a good
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 increased
odds of 6 to 7 times higher to have 50% improvement
at their 6 months’ disability follow up. (3) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn looks for
Ashburn pain relief as early as possible, and the treatment plan is geared
that way. In some cases,
a small percent of patients, Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn may consult a Ashburn spinal stenosis patient on a daily basis
at the start of care. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn takes good care of
our Ashburn lumbar spinal stenosis patients!
And finally Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn 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’s fully
outlined in the algorithms of decision making that guide
