Chiropractic Treatment Plan With Cycling for Lumbar Spinal Stenosis Pain Relief

Cycling. It is fun. It is calming. It is a sport (most!) anyone can enjoy. It is a method to get relief from spinal stenosis related back pain. Satterwhite Chiropractic is happy to suggest an enjoyable exercise option with Oxford chiropractic back pain patients for additional Oxford back pain relief.

WHAT IS LUMBAR SPINAL STENOSIS

Lumbar spinal stenosis is the narrowing of the spinal canal area in the low back. Such narrowing stems from issues like degenerative disc disease and disc herniation. In older folks, lumbar spinal stenosis is common. As we age, our discs lose nutrition and height - more so for some of us than others - which leads to that narrowing. Going to the grocery store becomes a thrill just to lean forward over the grocery cart as it relieves pain! Why? Leaning forward flexes the spine and opens the spinal canal space thereby reducing Oxford back pain.

WHY CYCLING

Researchers report that flexion-based training like cycling efficiently reduced back and improved function and quality of life in older people with chronic low back pain. (1) Improving the oxygen flow is a good thing to improve anyone’s view of life!

HOW CYCLING HELPS RELIEVE Oxford BACK PAIN FROM LUMBAR SPINAL STENOSIS

For older patients with lumbar spinal stenosis pain that has continued for years, a better quality of life is welcome! One study explored how cycling affected older back pain patients. Their average age was 70.9 years. Some were apprehensive of cycling due to fear of pain and fatigue, thinking the bike was too large, believing they didn’t have time to cycle, and not being motivated to participate in cycling. (Sounds like all of us at times! Oxford folks do need to set aside time to exercise regardless of how old we are!) Those who got over those issues and cycled were pleased with their clinical improvement (reduced leg pain and disability) and realized that the bicycle was simple. (1) You never know until you try! Satterwhite Chiropractic supports our Oxford chiropractic patients to attempt novel things to assist with their Oxford back pain relief.

CYCLING HELPS AVOID BACK SURGERY

Something new that many Oxford chiropractic patients don’t fancy trying is back surgery. When the pain is bad, a back surgery sounds like an answer. In a study done at a spine surgery center, patients with lumbar spinal stenosis and low back pain participate in a 4 months’ training program riding a stationary bicycle. They cycle at about 70% of maximal capacity. Almost half of the patients improved so much that they did not require spinal surgery. (2) Now that is an advantage Oxford lumbar spinal stenosis patients desire!
