Chiropractic alleviates conditions like
spinal stenosis. Spinal stenosis is everywhere today. Why?
An aging population. We are all aging, and when we achieve 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. Pflugerville Wellness 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 allows
reduced space for the spinal nerves and other elements may bring
about spinal stenosis and pain. Surgeons and medical device companies
offer surgical means to reduce spinal stenosis and open the
spinal canal space12. Conservative care back pain specialists like
chiropractors and your Pflugerville chiropractor at Pflugerville Wellness Center pursue
non-surgical means - like Pflugerville spinal manipulation and
mobilization which are reported to keep the
disc healthy by improved water flow and diffusion (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 shows that conservative care is better. 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 underwent 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 proof to
recommend surgical or non-surgical care to lumbar spinal stenosis
sufferers. (2) Pflugerville Wellness Center submits that a trial of 30
days looking for 50% improvement for most Pflugerville back
pain patients with research-documented chiropractic care following the
protocols of the Cox Technic System of Care. Pflugerville Wellness 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) Pflugerville Wellness Center seeks
Pflugerville pain relief as early as possible, and the treatment plan is established with this in mind. With some patients,
a small percent of patients, Pflugerville Wellness Center may see a Pflugerville spinal stenosis patient daily
in the beginning. Pflugerville Wellness Center takes good care of
our Pflugerville lumbar spinal stenosis patients!
And finally Pflugerville Wellness 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’s fully
outlined in the algorithms of decision making that lead
