Chiropractic Treatment Plan With Cycling for Lumbar Spinal Stenosis Pain Relief

Cycling. It is fun. It is calming. It is a sport all ages can enjoy. It’s a way to get relief from spinal stenosis related back pain. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. is happy to share an enjoyable exercise option with Auburn chiropractic back pain patients for additional Auburn back pain relief.

WHAT IS LUMBAR SPINAL STENOSIS

Lumbar spinal stenosis is the narrowing of the spinal canal area in the low back. Such narrowing stems from spinal conditions like degenerative disc disease and disc herniation. Many older Auburn back pain sufferers are diagnosed with lumbar spinal stenosis. As we age, our discs lose nutrition and height - more so for some of us than others - which leads to that narrowing. Grocery shopping turns out to be a delight just to lean forward over the grocery cart as it relieves pain! Why? Leaning forward flexes the spine and widens the spinal canal space thereby reducing Auburn back pain.

WHY CYCLING

Researchers document that flexion-based training like cycling efficiently reduced back and improved function and quality of life in older people with chronic low back pain. (1) Just getting oxygen flowing is a good thing to improve anyone’s outlook on life!

HOW CYCLING HELPS RELIEVE Auburn BACK PAIN FROM LUMBAR SPINAL STENOSIS

For older patients with lumbar spinal stenosis pain that has persisted for years, an improved quality of life is welcome! In one study of the effect of cycling on back pain in older patients with spinal stenosis, patients were 70.9 years of age. Some were frightened of cycling due to fear of pain and fatigue, feeling the bike was too large, believing they did not have time to cycle, and not really wanting to do it. (Sounds like all of us at times! Auburn folks just have to schedule time to exercise regardless of our age!) Those who got over those concerns and cycled were pleasantly satisfied with their clinical improvement (reduced leg pain and disability) and realized that the bicycle was easy to use. (1) You never know until you try! Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. encourages our Auburn chiropractic patients to try new things to assist with their Auburn back pain relief.

CYCLING HELPS AVOID BACK SURGERY

Something new that many Auburn chiropractic patients do not want to try is back surgery. When the pain is really uncomfortable, a back surgery sounds like an answer. In a study done at a spine surgery center, patients with lumbar spinal stenosis and low back pain participate in a 4 months’ training program using a stationary bicycle. They cycle at about 70% of maximal capacity. Nearly half of the patients improved so much that they did not need spinal surgery. (2) Now that is a benefit Auburn lumbar spinal stenosis patients want!
