Lumbar Spinal Stenosis Treatment Outcomes: Exercise = Surgery

October 23, 2018

What succeeds for Easley back pain relief due to lumbar spinal stenosis, exercise or decompression laminectomy surgery? Both…equally…says a new study! (1) Easley chiropractic patients would expect Young Chiropractic to emphasize chiropractic care for lumbar spinal stenosis. Young Chiropractic agrees! Easley chiropractic care incorporates many types of non-surgical care like exercise and nutrition and Easley spinal manipulation. Young Chiropractic offers Easley conservative care that is evidence-based and documented to work to ease Easley back pain for our Easley back pain patients.


Care of lumbar spine stenosis usually depends on the severity of symptoms the patient suffers. If there are no traces of severe motor changes or bowel or urinary changes, Easley conservative care is first line of care. Patients with serious intermittent claudication who do well with conservative treatment still need special attention as this condition is a risk factor for poorer outcomes. (2) Your Easley chiropractor watches cautiously for these issues that are very uncommon luckily! Young Chiropractic gently and effectively takes care of lumbar spinal stenosis.


Lumbar spinal stenosis is common spinal condition in older Easley 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 trigger significant trouble for people as far as walking and other daily activities for which non-surgical care is often successful in getting them to walk well again and perform their everyday activities as desired.  (3) Young Chiropractic helps relieve spinal stenosis related back pain for Easley chiropractic patients.


Lumbar spinal stenosis patients want help and are eager to do their job! Australian chiropractors are found to use diversified manipulation for many conditions but chose 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, Easley chiropractic patients with spinal stenosis desire treatment plans that are tailored to them explicitly and their own specific impairments and limitations. They are eager to learn self-care so as to not be required to visit healthcare providers as much. In one study patients report that medical care was regularly 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 temporary. What does that mean? Easley patients with lumbar spinal stenosis need to commit to exercise all the time not just when in pain. (3) Young Chiropractic is the number one supporter of Easley chiropractic patients who are ready to take care of themselves with Easley exercise!
