Chiropractic alleviates 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’s no problem, though! Chiropractic care is a solution
for many spinal stenosis pain patients. Shoreline Medical Services/ 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
a variety 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 Shoreline Medical Services/ 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
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. (2) Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office submits that a trial of 30
days looking for 50% improvement for most Groton back
pain patients with research-documented chiropractic care following the
protocols of the Cox Technic System of Care. Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office 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 improved
odds of 6 to 7 times greater to have 50% improvement
at their 6 months’ disability follow up. (3) Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office seeks
Groton pain relief as early as possible, and the treatment plan is geared
that way. With some patients,
a small number of patients, Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office may consult a Groton spinal stenosis patient daily
at the start of care. Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office takes good care of
our Groton lumbar spinal stenosis patients!
And lastly Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office 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 fully
outlined in the algorithms of decision making that guide
