Ashburn Back Pain Relief via Chiropractic Treatment Plan of Manipulation and Exercise

A new clinical trial is starting that will examine the effectiveness of a 6-week specific rehabilitation program combining education and exercises on walking capacity in those who have lumbar spinal stenosis with neurogenic claudication. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn knows these Ashburn spinal pain conditions very well…and delivers a relieving treatment plan of Cox® Technic spinal manipulation and mobilization with exercise!


The aim of this described study is to investigate whether adding an exercise program to an educational program might improve walking capacity in sufferers with lumbar spinal stenosis with neurogenic claudication. Being a randomized controlled clinical trial, 60 participants will be randomly allocated to either the intervention or control group. The intervention group will get an educational program plus an exercise program, while the control group will only receive the educational program. The main outcome measure is walking capacity, while the secondary outcome measures are pain intensity, disability level, and quality of life. (1)  Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn knows our Ashburn spinal stenosis patients are quite interested in these outcomes!


Lumbar spinal stenosis with neurogenic claudication is a spinal issue that causes narrowing of the spinal canal in the low back area, which in turn puts pressure on the nerves. This can lead to pain, numbness, and weakness in the legs and buttocks. In severe cases, it can also cause difficulty walking. The condition is a very common one in people over 50 years old. These are just the folks in Ashburn who need to keep (or at least begin) exercising!


The particular exercises that will be used in this trial are designed to improve walking capacity by stretching and strengthening the muscles surrounding the spine. The hope is that by doing these exercises on a regular basis, patients will feel less pain and disability and experience an improved quality of life.


The control group in this trial will only receive an educational program about their condition and how to control it. While education is valuable, it is not usually enough on its own to deliver significant relief from symptoms. That is why the addition of an exercise program is so valuable. It includes the back pain sufferer in his or her relief! Listen to this PODCAST with Dr. Michael McMurray on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson as he details The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management for lumbar spinal stenosis.
