. If that isn’t a recognizable phrase to you, it
likely is to a friend or family member. It’s the most prevalent reason for spinal surgery in
older adults (1)
(and origination of angst among some younger folks, too!). Spinal stenosis results from all kinds of variety of
issues, but the bottomline is that the spinal canal space is narrowed which
leaves little room for the spinal nerves and back pain results. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C.
offers a gentle, effective, non-surgical
approach to relief for
Auburn back pain patients with lumbar spinal stenosis.
The Auburn non-surgical approach
Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. offers is called Cox Technic flexion distraction spinal
manipulation. It’s a highly researched and effective approach to back pain and
neck pain relief. A most recent article states that patients who have lumbar
spinal stenosis report more significant pain reduction and disability when
treated with flexion distraction compared with conservative physical therapy. It
goes on to say that “flexion distraction appears to be an effective
intervention for pain and disability among patients with lumbar spinal
stenosis”. (2) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. recalls an earlier study reporting similar
outcomes for lumbar spinal stenosis patients: Long-term follow up results with
flexion distraction showed 75.6% patient-reported improvement in pain and 73.2% improvement in
disability. (3) Further, these flexion distraction outcomes are impressive when
compared with reported surgical versus non-surgical outcomes like those of the
Maine Lumbar Spine Study: 53% of surgical patients reported relief of low back
pain due to spinal stenosis while 50% of non-surgical patients reported the
same. (4) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. is poised to offer higher outcomes with its
Auburn chiropractic treatment plan involving flexion distraction.
Granted, some research studies point to surgery as being
effective for severe cases of spinal stenosis, but often the patients with mild
to moderate spinal stenosis don’t need surgery. They need
and oftentimes want a non-surgical treatment to manage the symptoms and the
pain. (1) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. approaches back pain that way: there is often not a
cure for back pain, but there is control. There is hope. If you miss walking
around the block with a friend or your dog, let’s get you in good enough shape
to do that again. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. knows that our Auburn back pain
patients want relief enough to enjoy their lives as fully as possible.
Now we encourage all of our Auburn back pain
patients with lumbar spinal stenosis to come to scheduled visits for optimal
