Groton Chiropractic Flexion Distraction Relieves Spinal Stenosis

Spinal stenosis. If that isn’t a well-known term to you, it likely is to a loved one. It’s the most prevalent reason for spinal surgery in older adults (1) (and cause of angst among some younger folks, too!). Spinal stenosis results from all types of issues, but the bottomline is that the spinal canal space is narrowed which leaves little room for the spinal nerves and back pain results. Hutter Chiropractic Office offers a gentle, effective, non-surgical approach to relief for Groton back pain patients with lumbar spinal stenosis.

The Groton non-surgical approach Hutter Chiropractic Office offers is called Cox Technic flexion distraction spinal manipulation. It’s a highly researched and effective approach to back pain and neck pain relief. A most recent article states that patients who have lumbar spinal stenosis report more significant pain reduction and disability when treated with flexion distraction compared with conservative physical therapy. It goes on to say that “flexion distraction appears to be an effective intervention for pain and disability among patients with lumbar spinal stenosis”. (2) Hutter Chiropractic Office recalls an earlier study reporting similar outcomes for lumbar spinal stenosis patients: Long-term follow up results with flexion distraction showed 75.6% patient-reported  improvement in pain and 73.2% improvement in disability. (3) Further, these flexion distraction outcomes are impressive when compared with reported surgical versus non-surgical outcomes like those of the Maine Lumbar Spine Study: 53% of surgical patients reported relief of low back pain due to spinal stenosis while 50% of non-surgical patients reported the same. (4) Hutter Chiropractic Office is poised to offer higher outcomes with its Groton chiropractic treatment plan involving flexion distraction.

Granted, some research studies point to surgery as being effective for severe cases of spinal stenosis, but often the patients with mild to moderate spinal stenosis don’t require surgery. They necessitate and oftentimes want a non-surgical treatment to manage the symptoms and the pain. (1) Hutter Chiropractic Office approaches back pain that way: there is often not a cure for back pain, but there is control. There is hope. If you miss walking around the block with a friend or your dog, let’s get you in good enough shape to do that again.
