Chiropractic alleviates 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. McMurray Chiropractic Solutions 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 be the result of
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 results in
reduced space for the spinal nerves and other elements may bring
about spinal stenosis and pain. Surgeons and medical device companies
offer surgical means to reduce spinal stenosis and open the
spinal canal space12. Conservative care back pain specialists like
chiropractors and your San Jose chiropractor at McMurray Chiropractic Solutions offer
non-surgical means - like San Jose spinal manipulation and
mobilization which reportedly keep the
disc healthy by improved water flow and diffusion (1) - to do the same thing:
reduce 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 had higher disability scores. Surgical
spinal stenosis patients experienced higher
complication rates than the conservative care spinal stenosis patients. Based
on their reviews of the published data, the researchers still don’t
feel that there is decisive evidence to
recommend surgical or non-surgical care to lumbar spinal stenosis
sufferers. (2) McMurray Chiropractic Solutions offers that a trial of 30

Early Improvement Under Care
Those spinal stenosis patients who display 33% to
50% improvement in pain at 2 weeks of care have increased
odds of 6 to 7 times greater to have 50% improvement
at their 6 months’ disability follow up. (3) McMurray Chiropractic Solutions seeks
San Jose pain relief as early as possible, and the treatment plan is established with this in mind. In some cases,
a small number of patients, McMurray Chiropractic Solutions may visit
with a San Jose spinal stenosis patient daily
at the start of care. McMurray Chiropractic Solutions takes good care of
our San Jose lumbar spinal stenosis patients!
And finally McMurray Chiropractic Solutions 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 if needed. (4) It is fully
