Chiropractic Treatment Plan With Cycling for Lumbar Spinal Stenosis Pain Relief

Cycling. It is fun. It is relaxing. It’s a sport all ages can enjoy. It’s a way to get relief from spinal stenosis related back pain. Malverne Health & Wellness is happy to suggest an gratifying exercise option with Malverne chiropractic back pain patients for added Malverne back pain relief.


Lumbar spinal stenosis is the narrowing of the spinal canal area in the low back. Such narrowing results from spinal conditions like degenerative disc disease and disc herniation. Many older Malverne back pain sufferers have lumbar spinal stenosis. As we get older, our discs lose nutrition and height - more so for some of us than others - which leads to that narrowing. Grocery shopping becomes a joy just to lean forward over the grocery cart as it feels good! Why? Leaning forward flexes the spine and widens the spinal canal space thus easing Malverne back pain.


Researchers document that flexion-based training like cycling really reduced back and enhanced function and quality of life in older people with chronic low back pain. (1) Improving the oxygen flow is a good thing to improve anyone’s outlook on life!


For older patients with lumbar spinal stenosis pain that’s persisted for years, a better quality of life is welcome! In one study of the effect of cycling on back pain in older patients with spinal stenosis, patients were 70.9 years of age. Some were apprehensive of cycling due to fear of pain and fatigue, feeling the bike was too big, feeling they didn’t have time to cycle, and not being motivated to participate in cycling. (Sound familiar? We can all be like that sometimes! Malverne folks just have to set aside time to exercise no matter how old we are!) Those who got over those issues and cycled were pleasantly satisfied with their clinical improvement (reduced leg pain and disability) and realized that the bicycle was simple. (1) You never know until you try! Malverne Health & Wellness urges our Malverne chiropractic patients to try new things to assist with their Malverne back pain relief.


Something new that many Malverne chiropractic patients do not fancy trying is back surgery. When the pain is bad, a back surgery may appear like a solution. In a study conducted at a spine surgery center, patients with lumbar spinal stenosis and low back pain participate in a 4 months’ training program using a stationary bicycle. They cycle at about 70% of maximal capacity. Nearly half of the patients improved so much that they did not require spinal surgery. (2) Now that is a benefit Malverne lumbar spinal stenosis patients desire!
