Lumbar Spinal Stenosis Treatment Outcomes: Exercise = Surgery

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


Treatment of lumbar spine stenosis usually is influenced by the severity of symptoms the patient suffers. If there aren’t any signs of severe motor changes or bowel or urinary changes, San Jose conservative care is first line of care. Patients with severe intermittent claudication who find relief with conservative treatment still require special attention as this disorder is a risk factor for poorer outcomes. (2) Your San Jose chiropractor observes cautiously for these issues that are quite rare fortunately! Chiropractic Solutions gently and effectively takes care of lumbar spinal stenosis.


Lumbar spinal stenosis is common spinal condition in older San Jose adults. As we age, disc and cartilage degenerate. When discs degenerate, the vertebral bones they separate and support grow nearer each other and trigger pain. Spinal stenosis may cause considerable worry for people as far as walking and other daily activities for which non-surgical care is many times positive for getting them to walk well again and perform their everyday activities as desired.  (3) Chiropractic Solutions helps relieve spinal stenosis related back pain for San Jose chiropractic patients.


Lumbar spinal stenosis patients want help and are eager to do their part! Australian chiropractors are found to use diversified manipulation for many 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 lot, too.  (4) Not surprisingly, San Jose chiropractic patients with spinal stenosis prefer treatment plans that are fitted to them explicitly and their own specific impairments and limitations. They are prepared to be trained in and do self-care so as to not be required to visit healthcare providers so much. In one study patients say that medical care was most often associated with minimal to no effect on pain! Patients reported that exercise enhanced their pain level and function but found these changes to be impermanent. What does that mean? San Jose patients with lumbar spinal stenosis need to commit to exercise all the time not just when in pain. (3) Chiropractic Solutions is the biggest cheerleader of San Jose chiropractic patients who are ready to take care of themselves with San Jose exercise!
