Chiropractic relieves conditions like
spinal stenosis. Spinal stenosis is all around us today. Why?
An aging population. We are all aging, and when we achieve 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. Satterwhite Chiropractic 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 be the result of
any of a number of issues like a disc herniation, disc bulge or
contained disc, synovial cyst. Anything that shrinks
the spinal canal area resulting in
reduced space for the spinal nerves and other elements may bring
about spinal stenosis and pain. Surgeons and medical device companies
look for surgical means to reduce spinal stenosis and open the
spinal canal space12. Conservative care back pain specialists like
chiropractors and your Oxford chiropractor at Satterwhite Chiropractic pursue
non-surgical means - like Oxford spinal manipulation and
mobilization which are reported to keep the
disc healthy by improved water flow and diffusion (1) - to do the same thing:
reduce spinal stenosis and open 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 underwent higher
complication rates than the conservative care spinal stenosis patients. Based
on their reviews of the published data, the researchers still do not
feel that there is decisive evidence to
recommend surgical or non-surgical care to lumbar spinal stenosis
sufferers. (2) Satterwhite Chiropractic submits that a trial of 30
days seeking 50% improvement for most Oxford back
pain patients with research-documented chiropractic care following the
protocols of the Cox Technic System of Care. Satterwhite Chiropractic is a reasonable
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 better
odds of 6 to 7 times greater to exhibit 50% improvement
at their 6 months’ disability follow up. (3) Satterwhite Chiropractic looks for
Oxford pain relief as early as possible, and the treatment plan is established with this in mind. With some patients,
a small number of patients, Satterwhite Chiropractic may consult a Oxford spinal stenosis patient daily
at the start of care. Satterwhite Chiropractic takes good care of
our Oxford lumbar spinal stenosis patients!
And lastly Satterwhite Chiropractic 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 well defined in the algorithms of decision making that lead
our Cox Technic system of spine pain management and lumbar spinal stenosis.
