Stenosis. If you are a bit older, you likely
know spinal stenosis. You experienced its hurting
results yourself or someone close to you does. Spinal
stenosis results in back pain, neck pain, arm pain
and/or leg pain (sciatica). It is no fun!
No magic pill cures it or prevents it. But chiropractic
care incorporating the gentle Cox® Technic flexion distraction
spinal manipulation system may ease it, slowly
and bit by bit. After the spinal stenosis pain is better, Watertown
chiropractic patients are more fully equipped to do what
they can to decrease the odds of future incidents,
prepared with exercises, diet tips, daily activities’ modification
tips, and the experience that Watertown
chiropractic care at Watertown Wellness Center can help.
COX® TECHNIC FOR SPINAL STENOSIS
One of the first ever written and peer-review
published papers by Dr. Cox, developer of Cox® Technic flexion distraction, was
about stenosis. (1) More recently, a comparison study of flexion distraction treatment to
conservative treatment for patients with spinal stenosis showed
that flexion distraction spinal manipulation was more valuable
for pain decrease and disability recovery. (2)
Another study presented that Cox® flexion distraction manipulation
brought about pain improvement by 76% and disability by 73%.
(3) Today, one of the most recent published papers
points out that there is indication that
chiropractic care is possibly beneficial for
patients suffering with lumbar
spinal stenosis. It further highlights
that chiropractic treatments of spinal stenosis are most often
flexion-distraction manipulation. (4) That is true at
Watertown Wellness Center! Watertown spinal stenosis patients find
reprieve with our Watertown chiropractic services.
FLEXION DISTRACTION FOR STENOSIS-RELATED NEUROGENIC
Neurogenic claudication frequently accompanies lumbar spinal stenosis, producing cramping leg pain for
its Watertown sufferers. Researchers discovered that treatments two times a week involving manual therapy like lumbar spine flexion distraction (generic term for
Cox® Technic spinal manipulation), soft tissue and neural mobilization,
chiropractic spinal manipulation, and muscle stretching along with structured home-based exercises, and instruction of self-management
strategies resulted in improved outcomes
(pain, disability, walking ability, treatment satisfaction). (5)
Watertown Wellness Center follows a similar chiropractic care system with
our Watertown spinal stenosis patients. Watertown Wellness Center treats the
whole person, not just the pain.
