Chiropractic alleviates conditions like
spinal stenosis. Spinal stenosis is all around us today. Why?
An aging population. We are all aging, and when we get to a
certain age, our bodies compensate us with conditions like spinal
stenosis. There’s no problem, though! Chiropractic care is a solution
for many spinal stenosis pain patients. The Novelli Wellness Center 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. Any issue that shrinks
the spinal canal area that allows
reduced space for the spinal nerves and other elements may cause spinal stenosis and pain. Surgeons and medical device companies
offer surgical means to reduce spinal stenosis and open the
spinal canal area. Conservative care back pain specialists like
chiropractors and your Buffalo, NY chiropractor at The Novelli Wellness Center offer
non-surgical means - like Buffalo, NY spinal manipulation and
mobilization which are shown to keep the
disc healthy by improved water flow and diffusion (1) - to do the same thing:
reduce spinal stenosis and open the spinal canal
Surgical vs Non-Surgical Care
A comparison of surgical and conservative treatments of
spinal stenosis shows that conservative care is better. 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 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 definitive proof to
recommend surgical or non-surgical care to lumbar spinal stenosis
sufferers. (2) The Novelli Wellness Center offers that a trial of 30
