Chiropractic eases conditions like
spinal stenosis. Spinal stenosis is all around us 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
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. (2) Cross Chiropractic Center submits that a trial of 30
days looking for 50% improvement for most Sandy Springs back
pain patients with research-documented chiropractic care following the
protocols of the Cox Technic System of Care. Cross Chiropractic 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) Cross Chiropractic Center seeks
Sandy Springs pain relief as early as possible, and the treatment plan is established with this in mind. In some cases,
a small number of patients, Cross Chiropractic Center may visit
with a Sandy Springs spinal stenosis patient on a daily basis
in the beginning. Cross Chiropractic Center takes good care of
our Sandy Springs lumbar spinal stenosis patients!
And lastly Cross Chiropractic 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 well defined in the algorithms of decision making that direct
our Cox Technic system of spine pain management and lumbar spinal stenosis.
