Spine researchers and authors endorse spinal manipulation and define what they mean by it. Based on studies that spinal manipulative therapy eased low back pain with gains that maintained for up to six weeks and was cost effective, the American College of Physicians included spinal manipulation in its recommendations for acute, subacute and chronic low back pain care. (1) Spinal manipulation is treatment of spine and pelvic related joints while manipulative therapy is treatment of other body joints including upper and lower extremities to improve pain and function. For back pain, The Pain Task Force of the Academic Consortium for Integrative Medicine and Health recommended both as the evidence-based non-pharmacological methods for pain relief. (1)  In order to distinguish flexion distraction from high velocity low amplitude (HVLA) thrust adjusting, researchers define it as low velocity low amplitude (LVLA) or low velocity variable amplitude (LVVA) spinal manipulation. Researchers have established an analgesic effect of LVVA spinal manipulation. (2) Any way it is defined, flexion distraction spinal manipulation is a gentle spinal manipulation procedure. It produces clinical outcomes favorable for Vancouver back pain patients.


For lumbar spinal stenosis, gentle spinal manipulation is effective. Distraction manipulation and neural mobilization appear to be useful treatment techniques to improve disability for spinal stenosis patients. 66.7% of patients in one study rated overall treatment  improvement at 65.1%. On follow up (16.5 months), 73.2% of them rated their improvement at 75.6%. (3) Vancouver Spine Care Centre seeks at least 50% improvement in the first month of care. Medicine acknowledges that 30% relief of pain after its care is good. (4) Vancouver Spine Care Centre takes care of Vancouver back pain patients with lumbar spinal stenosis routinely using Cox Technic.
