Lumbar Spinal Stenosis Treatment Outcomes: Exercise = Surgery

What succeeds for Ashburn back pain relief due to lumbar spinal stenosis, exercise or decompression laminectomy surgery? Both…equally…says a new study! (1) Ashburn chiropractic patients would assume Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn to emphasize chiropractic care for lumbar spinal stenosis. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn agrees! Ashburn chiropractic care includes many forms of non-surgical care like exercise and nutrition and Ashburn spinal manipulation. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn offers Ashburn conservative care that is evidence-based and documented to work to relieve Ashburn back pain for our Ashburn back pain patients.


Treatment of lumbar spine stenosis often is influenced by the severity of symptoms the patient suffers. If there aren’t any traces of serious motor changes or bowel or urinary changes, Ashburn conservative care is first line of care. Patients with severe intermittent claudication who find relief with conservative treatment still need special attention as this disorder is a risk factor for lesser outcomes. (2) Your Ashburn chiropractor observes vigilantly for these issues that are quite rare luckily! Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn gently and effectively takes care of lumbar spinal stenosis.


Lumbar spinal stenosis is a familiar spinal condition in older Ashburn adults. As we age, disc and cartilage degenerate. When discs degenerate, the vertebral bones they hold apart grow closer together and produce pain. Spinal stenosis may cause considerable worry for people with walking and other everyday activities for which non-surgical care is many times successful in getting them to walk well again and perform their daily activities as desired.  (3) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn helps relieve spinal stenosis related back pain for Ashburn chiropractic patients.


Lumbar spinal stenosis patients want help and are ready to do their job! Australian chiropractors are found to use diversified manipulation for several conditions but selected flexion distraction (Cox Technic) for lumbar disc syndrome with radiculopathy and lumbar central stenosis. Soft tissue and exercise recommendations were used a lot, too.  (4) Not astonishingly, Ashburn chiropractic patients with spinal stenosis favor treatment plans that are customized to them specifically and their unique impairments and limitations. They are eager to be trained in and do self-care so as to not have to go to healthcare providers so much. In one study patients say that medical care was frequently linked to minimal to no effect on pain! Patients described that exercise enhanced their pain level and function but realized that these changes to be short-lived. What does that mean? Ashburn patients with lumbar spinal stenosis need to perform their exercises all the time not just when in pain. (3) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn is the biggest cheerleader of Ashburn chiropractic patients who want to take care of themselves with Ashburn exercise!
