Chiropractic relieves conditions like spinal stenosis. Spinal stenosis is all around us today. Why? An aging population. We are all aging, and when we achieve a certain age, our bodies reward us with conditions like spinal stenosis. There’s no problem, though! Chiropractic care is a solution for many spinal stenosis pain patients. Moriarty Chiropractic 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 any of a number of issues like a disc herniation, disc bulge or contained disc, synovial cyst. Anything that narrows the spinal canal area resulting in reduced 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 space12. Conservative care back pain specialists like chiropractors and your Nashua chiropractor at Moriarty Chiropractic pursue non-surgical means - like Nashua 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 area.
Surgical vs Non-Surgical Care
A comparison of surgical and conservative treatments of spinal stenosis explains that conservative care is better. At 6 months post-care – surgical or non-surgical – no significant differences are presented 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 decisive proof to endorse surgical or non-surgical care to lumbar spinal stenosis sufferers.
