Chiropractic relieves conditions like
spinal stenosis. Spinal stenosis is everywhere 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. Minster Chiropractic Center 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 result from
a variety of issues like a disc herniation, disc bulge or
contained disc, synovial cyst. Any condition that narrows
the spinal canal area resulting in
less space for the spinal nerves and other elements may cause spinal stenosis and pain. Surgeons and medical device companies
seek surgical means to reduce spinal stenosis and open the
spinal canal space12. Conservative care back pain specialists like
chiropractors and your Minster chiropractor at Minster Chiropractic Center seek
non-surgical means - like Minster spinal manipulation and
mobilization which reportedly positively affect the water flow
and diffusion into the disc, keeping it healthy (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 explains that conservative care is more positive. At 6 months post-care – surgical or
non-surgical – no significant differences are presented in
the spinal stenosis patients. At 12 and 24 months post-care, the surgical
spinal stenosis patients report 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
endorse surgical or non-surgical care to lumbar spinal stenosis
sufferers. (2) Minster Chiropractic Center offers that a trial of 30

Early Improvement Under Care
Those spinal stenosis patients who display 33% to

odds of 6 to 7 times higher to have 50% improvement
at their 6 months’ disability follow up. (3) Minster Chiropractic Center seeks
Minster pain relief as early as possible, and the treatment plan is established with this in mind. With some patients,
a small percent of patients, Minster Chiropractic Center may visit
