Groton Lumbar Spinal Stenosis Relief at Hutter Chiropractic Office

Chiropractic alleviates conditions like spinal stenosis. Spinal stenosis is everywhere today. Why? An aging population.

Chiropractic care is a solution for many spinal stenosis pain patients. Hutter Chiropractic Office 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 result from any of a number of issues like a disc herniation, disc bulge or contained disc, synovial cyst. Anything that shrinks the spinal canal area that allows less space for the spinal nerves and other elements may cause spinal stenosis and pain. Surgeons and medical device companies look for surgical means to reduce spinal stenosis and open the spinal canal area. Conservative care back pain specialists like chiropractors and your Groton chiropractor at Hutter Chiropractic Office offer non-surgical means - like Groton spinal manipulation and mobilization which are reported to 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 demonstrates that conservative care is more positive. At 6 months post-care – surgical or non-surgical – no significant differences are noted 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 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 definitive evidence to recommend surgical or non-surgical care to lumbar spinal stenosis sufferers.
