Sandy Springs Lumbar Spinal Stenosis Relief at Cross Chiropractic Center

Chiropractic eases 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 compensate us with conditions like spinal stenosis. There is no problem, though! Chiropractic care is a solution for many spinal stenosis pain patients. Cross Chiropractic 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 be the result of a variety of issues like a disc herniation, disc bulge or contained disc, synovial cyst. Anything that narrows the spinal canal area that results in reduced space for the spinal nerves and other elements may cause spinal stenosis and pain. Surgeons and medical device companies offer surgical means to reduce spinal stenosis and open the spinal canal area. Conservative care back pain specialists like chiropractors and your Sandy Springs chiropractor at Cross Chiropractic Center seek non-surgical means - like Sandy Springs 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: reduce spinal stenosis and widen the spinal canal area.

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 reported 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 conclusive proof to endorse surgical or non-surgical care to lumbar spinal stenosis sufferers.
