Watertown Lumbar Spinal Stenosis Relief at Watertown Wellness Center

Chiropractic relieves 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 compensate us with conditions like spinal stenosis. There’s no problem, though! Chiropractic care is a solution for many spinal stenosis pain patients. Watertown 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 be the result of any of a number of issues like a disc herniation, disc bulge or contained disc, synovial cyst. Anything that shrinks the spinal canal area resulting in less 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 Watertown chiropractor at Watertown Wellness Center pursue non-surgical means - like Watertown spinal manipulation and mobilization which are shown to keep the disc healthy by improved water flow and diffusion (1) - to do the same thing: diminish spinal stenosis and widen the spinal canal area.

Surgical vs Non-Surgical Care 

A comparison of surgical and conservative treatments of spinal stenosis explains 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 suffered 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 endorse surgical or non-surgical care to lumbar spinal stenosis sufferers.
