Lumbar Spinal Stenosis Treatment Outcomes: Exercise = Surgery

What works for Vancouver back pain relief due to lumbar spinal stenosis, exercise or decompression laminectomy surgery? Both…equally…says a new study! (1) Vancouver chiropractic patients would expect Vancouver Disc Centers to highlight chiropractic care for lumbar spinal stenosis. Vancouver Disc Centers agrees! Vancouver chiropractic care includes many forms of non-surgical care like exercise and nutrition and Vancouver spinal manipulation. Vancouver Disc Centers offers Vancouver conservative care that is evidence-based and documented to work to relieve Vancouver back pain for our Vancouver back pain patients.


Treatment of lumbar spine stenosis usually is determined by the severity of symptoms the patient suffers. If there aren’t any traces of serious motor changes or bowel or urinary changes, Vancouver conservative care is an appropriate approach to pain relief. Patients with serious intermittent claudication who do well with conservative treatment still require particular attention as this disorder is a risk factor for lesser outcomes. (2) Your Vancouver chiropractor watches cautiously for these issues that are quite uncommon fortunately! Vancouver Disc Centers gently and successfully cares for lumbar spinal stenosis.


Lumbar spinal stenosis is common spinal condition in older Vancouver adults. As we age, disc and cartilage degenerate. When discs degenerate, the vertebral bones they hold apart grow nearer each other and trigger pain. Spinal stenosis may produce significant trouble for people with walking and other everyday activities for which non-surgical care is often positive for getting them to walk better and do their daily activities as wanted.  (3) Vancouver Disc Centers helps relieve spinal stenosis related back pain for Vancouver chiropractic patients.


Lumbar spinal stenosis patients want help and are ready to do their part! Australian chiropractors are found to use diversified manipulation for several conditions but selected flexion distraction (Cox Technic) for lumbar disc syndrome with radiculopathy and lumbar central stenosis. Soft tissue and exercise suggestions were implemented a great deal, too.  (4) Not surprisingly, Vancouver chiropractic patients with spinal stenosis favor treatment plans that are customized to them explicitly and their unique impairments and limitations. They are prepared to be trained in and do self-care so as to not be required to visit healthcare providers as much. In one report patients say that medical care was frequently associated with minimal to no effect on pain! Patients reported that exercise improved their pain level and function but realized that these changes to be short-lived. What does that mean? Vancouver patients with lumbar spinal stenosis need to perform their exercises all the time not just when in pain. (3) Vancouver Disc Centers is the number one supporter of Vancouver chiropractic patients who want to take care of themselves with Vancouver exercise!
