Stenosis. If you are a bit older, you likely are familiar with spinal stenosis. You have felt its hurting results yourself or someone close to you does. Spinal stenosis results in back pain, neck pain, arm pain and/or leg pain (sciatica). It is not much fun at all! No magic pill cures it or prevents it. But chiropractic care using the gentle Cox® Technic flexion distraction spinal manipulation system may relieve it, slowly and steadily. Once on the other side of spinal stenosis’ pain, Nashua chiropractic patients are more fully equipped to do what they can to reduce the chances of future incidents, prepared with exercises, diet tips, daily activities’ modification tips, and the experience that Nashua chiropractic care at Moriarty Chiropractic can help.
COX® TECHNIC FOR SPINAL STENOSIS
One of the original written and peer-review published papers by Dr. Cox, developer of Cox® Technic flexion distraction, discussed stenosis. (1) Lately, a comparison study of flexion distraction treatment to conservative treatment for patients with spinal stenosis showed that flexion distraction spinal manipulation was more effective for pain reduction and disability recovery. (2) Another study presented that Cox® flexion distraction manipulation resulted in pain improvement by 76% and disability by 73%. (3) Today, one of the newest published reports points out that there is evidence that chiropractic care is possibly useful for patients experiencing pain of lumbar spinal stenosis. It further highlights that chiropractic treatments of spinal stenosis are most often flexion-distraction manipulation. (4) That’s true at Moriarty Chiropractic! Nashua spinal stenosis patients obtain reprieve with our Nashua chiropractic services.
FLEXION DISTRACTION FOR STENOSIS-RELATED NEUROGENIC CLAUDICATION
Neurogenic claudication frequently accompanies lumbar spinal stenosis, producing cramping leg pain for its Nashua sufferers. Researchers found that treatments two times a week involving manual therapy like lumbar spine flexion distraction (generic term for Cox® Technic spinal manipulation), soft tissue and neural mobilization, chiropractic spinal manipulation, and muscle stretching along with structured home-based exercises, and instruction of self-management strategies lead to improved outcomes (pain, disability, walking ability, treatment satisfaction). (5) Moriarty Chiropractic offers a similar chiropractic care system with our Nashua spinal stenosis patients. Moriarty Chiropractic treats the whole patient, not only the pain.
