Chiropractic eases 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 reward us with conditions like spinal
stenosis. There is no problem, though! Chiropractic care is a solution
for many spinal stenosis pain patients. Hollstrom & Associates Inc 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
any of a number of issues like a disc herniation, disc bulge or
contained disc, synovial cyst. Anything that narrows
the spinal canal area that causes
less space for the spinal nerves and other elements may bring
about 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 Largo chiropractor at Hollstrom & Associates Inc seek
non-surgical means - like Largo spinal manipulation and
mobilization which are reported to keep the
disc healthy by improved water flow and diffusion (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 suffered 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 definitive evidence to
recommend surgical or non-surgical care to lumbar spinal stenosis
sufferers. (2) Hollstrom & Associates Inc offers that a trial of 30
days looking for 50% improvement for most Largo back
pain patients with research-documented chiropractic care following the
protocols of the Cox Technic System of Care. Hollstrom & Associates Inc is a reasonable
place to start!
Early Improvement Under Care
Those spinal stenosis patients who show 33% to
50% improvement in pain at 2 weeks of care have improved
odds of 6 to 7 times greater to exhibit 50% improvement
at their 6 months’ disability follow up. (3) Hollstrom & Associates Inc looks for
Largo pain relief as early as possible, and the treatment plan is established with this in mind. With some patients,
a small percent of patients, Hollstrom & Associates Inc may see a Largo spinal stenosis patient daily
at the start of care. Hollstrom & Associates Inc takes good care of
our Largo lumbar spinal stenosis patients!
And lastly Hollstrom & Associates Inc relies on its experienced
clinical judgment and evidence of a patient’s not improving as expected to
order more imaging or schedule a surgical consultation as needed. (4) It’s fully
outlined in the algorithms of decision making that lead
our Cox Technic system of spine pain management and lumbar spinal stenosis.
