Chiropractic Treatment Plan With Cycling for Lumbar Spinal Stenosis Pain Relief

Cycling. It’s fun. It is calming. It is a sport all ages can enjoy. It is a method to get relief from spinal stenosis related back pain. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic is happy to suggest an gratifying exercise option with Montreal chiropractic back pain patients for more Montreal back pain relief.


Lumbar spinal stenosis is the narrowing of the spinal canal area in the low back. Such narrowing follows from issues like degenerative disc disease and disc herniation. Many older Montreal back pain sufferers have lumbar spinal stenosis. As we get older, 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 delight just to lean forward over the grocery cart as it feels good! Why? Leaning forward flexes the spine and opens the spinal canal space thereby reducing Montreal back pain.


Researchers report that flexion-based training like cycling really reduced back and improved function and quality of life in older people with chronic low back pain. (1) Just getting oxygen flowing is a good thing to improve anyone’s outlook on life!


For older patients with lumbar spinal stenosis pain that has persisted for years, an improved quality of life is welcome! One study explored how cycling affected older back pain patients. Their average age was 70.9 years. Some were uneasy of cycling due to fear of pain and fatigue, feeling the bike was too big, believing they didn’t have time to cycle, and not really wanting to participate in cycling. (Sounds like all of us sometimes! Montreal folks do need to schedule time to exercise regardless of our age!) Those who got over those issues and cycled were pleasantly satisfied with their clinical improvement (reduced leg pain and disability) and discovered that the bicycle was simple. (1) You never know until you try! Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic urges our Montreal chiropractic patients to attempt novel things to help with their Montreal back pain relief.


Something new that many Montreal chiropractic patients don’t fancy trying is back surgery. When the pain is bad, a back surgery seems like an answer. In a study conducted at a spine surgery center, patients with lumbar spinal stenosis and low back pain undergo a 4 months’ training program riding a stationary bicycle. They cycle at about 70% of maximal capacity. Nearly 50% of the patients got better so much that they did not require spinal surgery. (2) Now that is a benefit Montreal lumbar spinal stenosis patients want!
