Chiropractic relieves conditions like
spinal stenosis. Spinal stenosis is everywhere 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 is no problem, though! Chiropractic care is a solution
for many spinal stenosis pain patients. Malverne Health & Wellness 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 condition that narrows
the spinal canal area that allows
less space for the spinal nerves and other elements may cause spinal stenosis and pain. Surgeons and medical device companies
seek surgical means to reduce spinal stenosis and open the
spinal canal area. Conservative care back pain specialists like
chiropractors and your Malverne chiropractor at Malverne Health & Wellness seek
non-surgical means - like Malverne spinal manipulation and
mobilization which reportedly positively affect the water flow
and diffusion into the disc, keeping it healthy (1) - to do the same thing:
diminish spinal stenosis and widen the spinal canal
Surgical vs Non-Surgical Care
A comparison of surgical and conservative treatments of
spinal stenosis shows that conservative care leads
in outcomes. 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 report 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 definitive proof to
recommend surgical or non-surgical care to lumbar spinal stenosis
sufferers. (2) Malverne Health & Wellness offers that a trial of 30
days looking for 50% improvement for most Malverne back
pain patients with research-documented chiropractic care following the
protocols of the Cox Technic System of Care. Malverne Health & Wellness is a reasonable
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 increased
odds of 6 to 7 times higher to have 50% improvement
at their 6 months’ disability follow up. (3) Malverne Health & Wellness looks for
Malverne pain relief as early as possible, and the treatment plan is geared
that way. With some patients,
a small number of patients, Malverne Health & Wellness may see a Malverne spinal stenosis patient on a daily basis
in the beginning. Malverne Health & Wellness takes good care of
our Malverne lumbar spinal stenosis patients!
And finally Malverne Health & Wellness 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 direct
our Cox Technic system of spine pain management and lumbar spinal stenosis.
