Stenosis. If you are of a certain age, you probably
know spinal stenosis. You experienced its hurting
effects yourself or someone near 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 incorporating the gentle Cox® Technic flexion distraction
spinal manipulation system may relieve it, slowly
and steadily. After the spinal stenosis pain is better, Groton
chiropractic patients are more fully equipped to do what
they can to decrease the chances of future incidents,
prepared with exercises, diet tips, daily activities’ modification
ideas, and the knowledge that Groton
chiropractic care at Hutter Chiropractic Office 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, was
about stenosis. (1) Lately, a comparison study of flexion distraction treatment to
conservative treatment for patients with spinal stenosis revealed
that flexion distraction spinal manipulation was more effective
for pain reduction and disability improvement. (2)
Another study presented that Cox® flexion distraction manipulation
brought about pain improvement by 76% and disability by 73%.
(3) Today, one of the newest published reports
indicates that there is indication that
chiropractic care is potentially useful for
patients suffering with lumbar
spinal stenosis. It additionally highlights
that chiropractic treatments of spinal stenosis are most often
flexion-distraction manipulation. (4) That’s true at
Hutter Chiropractic Office! Groton spinal stenosis patients find
reprieve with our Groton chiropractic services.
FLEXION DISTRACTION FOR STENOSIS-RELATED NEUROGENIC
Neurogenic claudication often accompanies lumbar spinal stenosis, causing cramping leg pain for
its Groton sufferers. Researchers discovered 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 resulted in improved outcomes
(pain, disability, walking ability, treatment satisfaction). (5)
Hutter Chiropractic Office offers a similar chiropractic care system with
our Groton spinal stenosis patients. Hutter Chiropractic Office treats the
whole person, not just the pain.
