Stenosis. If you are of a certain age, you likely know spinal stenosis. You experienced its painful effects yourself or someone near you does. Spinal stenosis results in back pain, neck pain, arm pain and/or leg pain (sciatica). It is no fun! No magic pill cures it or prevents it. But chiropractic care incorporating the gentle Cox® Technic flexion distraction spinal manipulation system may relieve it, slowly and bit by bit. Once on the other side of spinal stenosis’ pain, Augusta chiropractic patients are well educated as to do what they can to reduce the odds of future episodes, armed with exercises, diet tips, daily activities’ alteration ideas, and the experience that Augusta chiropractic care at Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic is effective.
COX® TECHNIC FOR SPINAL STENOSIS
One of the original written and peer-review published papers by Dr. Cox, developer of Cox® Technic flexion distraction, discussed stenosis. (1) More recently, a comparison study of flexion distraction treatment to conservative treatment for patients with spinal stenosis showed that flexion distraction spinal manipulation was more effective for pain reduction and disability improvement. (2) Another study presented that Cox® flexion distraction manipulation resulted in pain improvement by 76% and disability by 73%. (3) Today, one of the newest published papers points out that there is evidence that chiropractic care is potentially useful for patients enduring pain due to lumbar spinal stenosis. It additionally emphasizes that chiropractic treatments of spinal stenosis are most often flexion-distraction manipulation. (4) That is true at Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic! Augusta spinal stenosis patients obtain relief with our Augusta chiropractic services.
FLEXION DISTRACTION FOR STENOSIS-RELATED NEUROGENIC CLAUDICATION
Neurogenic claudication frequently accompanies lumbar spinal stenosis, producing cramping leg pain for its Augusta sufferers. Researchers discovered that treatments two times a week involving manual therapy like lumbar spine flexion distraction (generic term for Cox® Technic spinal manipulation), soft tissue and neural mobilization, chiropractic spinal manipulation, and muscle stretching along with structured home-based exercises, and instruction of self-management strategies lead to improved outcomes (pain, disability, walking ability, treatment satisfaction). (5) Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic offers a similar chiropractic care system with our Augusta spinal stenosis patients. Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic treats the whole patient, not only the pain.
