Lumbar Spinal Stenosis Treatment Outcomes: Exercise = Surgery

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


Care of lumbar spine stenosis often is determined by the seriousness of symptoms the patient suffers. If there are no signs of severe motor changes or bowel or urinary changes, Sitka conservative care is first line of care. Patients with severe intermittent claudication who find relief with conservative treatment still require particular attention as this disorder is a risk factor for poorer outcomes. (2) Your Sitka chiropractor observes cautiously for these issues that are very odd luckily! Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka gently and effectively cares for lumbar spinal stenosis.


Lumbar spinal stenosis is a familiar spinal condition in older Sitka adults. As we age, disc and cartilage degenerate. When discs degenerate, the vertebral bones they separate and support grow closer together and trigger pain. Spinal stenosis may produce considerable trouble for people as far as walking and other everyday activities for which non-surgical care is often successful in getting them to walk better and perform their daily activities as wanted.  (3) Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka helps ease spinal stenosis related back pain for Sitka chiropractic patients.


Lumbar spinal stenosis patients want relief and are eager to do their job! Australian chiropractors report that they 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 used a lot, too.  (4) Not surprisingly, Sitka chiropractic patients with spinal stenosis favor treatment plans that are fitted to them explicitly and their unique impairments and limitations. They are eager to be trained in and do self-care so as to not have to visit healthcare providers as much. In one report patients say that medical care was regularly linked to minimal to no effect on pain! Patients reported that exercise enhanced their pain level and function but found these changes to be short-lived. What does that mean? Sitka patients with lumbar spinal stenosis need to perform their exercises all the time not just when experiencing pain. (3) Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka is the number one cheerleader of Sitka chiropractic patients who are ready to take care of themselves with Sitka exercise!
