Lumbar Spinal Stenosis 

Lumbar spinal stenosis may be the result of any of a number of issues like a disc herniation, disc bulge or contained disc, synovial cyst. Anything that narrows the spinal canal area resulting in less space for the spinal nerves and other elements may bring about spinal stenosis and pain. Surgeons and medical device companies offer surgical means to reduce spinal stenosis and open the spinal canal space12. Conservative care back pain specialists like chiropractors and your Vancouver chiropractor at Vancouver Spine Care Centre pursue non-surgical means - like Vancouver spinal manipulation and mobilization which are reported to positively affect the water flow and diffusion into the disc, keeping it healthy (1) - to do the same thing: diminish spinal stenosis and widen the spinal canal area.

Surgical vs Non-Surgical Care 

A comparison of surgical and conservative treatments of spinal stenosis explains that conservative care is better. At 6 months post-care – surgical or non-surgical – no significant differences are presented in the spinal stenosis patients. At 12 and 24 months post-care, the surgical spinal stenosis patients report higher disability scores. Surgical spinal stenosis patients underwent higher complication rates than the conservative care spinal stenosis patients. Based on their reviews of the published data, the researchers still do not feel that there is conclusive evidence to endorse surgical or non-surgical care to lumbar spinal stenosis sufferers.
