Lumbar Spinal Stenosis Treatment Outcomes: Exercise = Surgery

What works for Watertown back pain relief due to lumbar spinal stenosis, exercise or decompression laminectomy surgery? Both…equally…says a new study! (1) Watertown chiropractic patients would expect Watertown Wellness Center to highlight chiropractic care for lumbar spinal stenosis. Watertown Wellness Center concurs! Watertown chiropractic care includes many forms of non-surgical care like exercise and nutrition and Watertown spinal manipulation. Watertown Wellness Center offers Watertown conservative care that is evidence-based and documented to work to relieve Watertown back pain for our Watertown back pain patients.


Care of lumbar spine stenosis usually is influenced by the severity of symptoms the patient experiences. If there are no signs of severe motor changes or bowel or urinary changes, Watertown conservative care is first line of care. Patients with severe intermittent claudication who find relief with conservative treatment still need particular attention as this condition is a risk factor for lesser outcomes. (2) Your Watertown chiropractor watches vigilantly for these issues that are quite odd luckily! Watertown Wellness Center gently and successfully cares for lumbar spinal stenosis.


Lumbar spinal stenosis is a familiar spinal condition in older Watertown adults. As we age, disc and cartilage degenerate. When discs degenerate, the vertebral bones they separate and support grow nearer each other and produce pain. Spinal stenosis may cause significant worry for people as far as walking and other everyday activities for which non-surgical care is often successful in helping them to walk better and do their everyday activities as wanted.  (3) Watertown Wellness Center helps relieve spinal stenosis related back pain for Watertown chiropractic patients.


Lumbar spinal stenosis patients want help and are ready to do their job! Australian chiropractors report that they use diversified manipulation for several 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 astonishingly, Watertown chiropractic patients with spinal stenosis desire treatment plans that are customized to them specifically and their own specific impairments and limitations. They are willing to be trained in and do self-care so as to not be required to visit healthcare providers as much. In one study patients say that medical care was most often linked to minimal to no effect on pain! Patients reported that exercise enhanced their pain level and function but realized that these changes to be short-lived. What does that mean? Watertown patients with lumbar spinal stenosis need to perform their exercises all the time not just when in pain. (3) Watertown Wellness Center is the number one supporter of Watertown chiropractic patients who are ready to take care of themselves with Watertown exercise!
