Stenosis. If you are a bit older, you probably
are familiar with spinal stenosis. You have felt its painful
effects yourself or someone near you does. Spinal
stenosis results in back pain, neck pain, arm pain
and/or leg pain (sciatica). It’s no fun!
No magic pill cures it or stops it. But chiropractic
care incorporating the gentle Cox® Technic flexion distraction
spinal manipulation system may ease it, slowly
and bit by bit. Once on the other side of spinal stenosis’
chiropractic patients are well educated as to do what
they can to decrease the odds of future incidents,
prepared with exercises, diet tips, daily activities’ modification
ideas, and the experience that Auburn
chiropractic care at Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. 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 revealed
that flexion distraction spinal manipulation was more effective
for pain decrease and disability improvement. (2)
Another study presented that Cox® flexion distraction manipulation
brought about pain improvement by 76% and disability by 73%.
(3) Today, one of the newest published reports
indicates that there is evidence that
chiropractic care is potentially useful for
patients suffering with lumbar
spinal stenosis. It further stresses
that chiropractic treatments of spinal stenosis are most often
flexion-distraction manipulation. (4) That’s true at
Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C.! Auburn spinal stenosis patients get
reprieve with our Auburn chiropractic services.
FLEXION DISTRACTION FOR STENOSIS-RELATED NEUROGENIC
Neurogenic claudication often comes
with lumbar spinal stenosis, causing cramping leg pain for
its Auburn sufferers. Researchers discovered that treatments two times a week including 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 as well
as structured home-based exercises, and instruction of self-management
strategies resulted in improved consequences
(pain, disability, walking ability, treatment satisfaction). (5)
Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. follows a similar chiropractic care system with
our Auburn spinal stenosis patients. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. treats the
whole person, not just the pain.
