Chiropractic eases conditions like
spinal stenosis. Spinal stenosis is all around us 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 is no problem, though! Chiropractic care is a solution
for many spinal stenosis pain patients. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic 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. Any condition that narrows
the spinal canal area resulting in
reduced space for the spinal nerves and other elements may cause spinal stenosis and pain. Surgeons and medical device companies
offer surgical means to reduce spinal stenosis and open the
spinal canal area. Conservative care back pain specialists like
chiropractors and your Montreal chiropractor at Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic pursue
non-surgical means - like Montreal spinal manipulation and
mobilization which reportedly keep the
disc healthy by improved water flow and diffusion (1) - to do the same thing:
diminish spinal stenosis and widen the spinal canal
Surgical vs Non-Surgical Care
A comparison of surgical and conservative treatments of
spinal stenosis shows that conservative care leads
in outcomes. 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 suffered 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
endorse surgical or non-surgical care to lumbar spinal stenosis
sufferers. (2) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic offers that a trial of 30
days seeking 50% improvement for most Montreal back
pain patients with research-documented chiropractic care following the
protocols of the Cox Technic System of Care. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic is a good
place to start!
Early Improvement Under Care
Those spinal stenosis patients who show 33% to
50% improvement in pain at 2 weeks of care have increased
odds of 6 to 7 times greater to have 50% improvement
at their 6 months’ disability follow up. (3) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic seeks
Montreal pain relief as early as possible, and the treatment plan is established with this in mind. With some patients,
a small number of patients, Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic may visit
with a Montreal spinal stenosis patient on a daily basis
in the beginning. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic takes good care of
our Montreal lumbar spinal stenosis patients!
And lastly Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic 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 is fully
outlined in the algorithms of decision making that direct
our Cox Technic system of spine pain management and lumbar spinal stenosis.
