Chiropractic Treatment Plan With Cycling for Lumbar Spinal Stenosis Pain Relief

Cycling. It’s fun. It is calming. It is a sport (most!) anyone can enjoy. It’s a method to get relief from spinal stenosis related back pain. Novelli Wellness Center is happy to suggest an gratifying exercise option with Orchard Park, NY chiropractic back pain patients for more Orchard Park, NY back pain relief.


Lumbar spinal stenosis is the narrowing of the spinal canal area in the low back. Such narrowing results from spinal conditions like degenerative disc disease and disc herniation. In older folks, lumbar spinal stenosis is familiar. As we age, our discs lose nutrition and height - more so for some of us than others - which leads to that narrowing. Grocery shopping comes to be a joy just to lean forward over the grocery cart as it relieves pain! Why? Leaning forward flexes the spine and widens the spinal canal space thus reducing Orchard Park, NY back pain.


Researchers report that flexion-based training like cycling really reduced back and enhanced function and quality of life in older people with chronic low back pain. (1) Just getting oxygen flowing is a good thing to improve anyone’s outlook on life!


For older patients with lumbar spinal stenosis pain that has persisted for years, an improved quality of life is welcome! In one study of the effect of cycling on back pain in older patients with spinal stenosis, patients were 70.9 years of age. Some were uneasy of cycling due to fear of pain and fatigue, feeling the bike was too big, feeling they didn’t have time to cycle, and not being motivated to participate in cycling. (Sounds like all of us at times! Orchard Park, NY folks do need to set aside time to exercise no matter how old we are!) Those who let go of those issues and cycled were pleasantly satisfied with their clinical improvement (reduced leg pain and disability) and discovered that the bicycle was not bad at all. (1) You never know until you try! Novelli Wellness Center supports our Orchard Park, NY chiropractic patients to try novel things to assist with their Orchard Park, NY back pain relief.


Something new that many Orchard Park, NY chiropractic patients do not fancy trying is back surgery. When the pain is bad, a back surgery sounds like an answer. In a study done at a spine surgery center, patients with lumbar spinal stenosis and low back pain undergo a 4 months’ training program using a stationary bicycle. They cycle at about 70% of maximal capacity. Nearly 50% of the patients got better so much that they did not require spinal surgery. (2) Now that is a benefit Orchard Park, NY lumbar spinal stenosis patients desire!
