Lumbar Spinal Stenosis Treatment Outcomes: Exercise = Surgery

What works for Vancouver back pain relief due to lumbar spinal stenosis, exercise or decompression laminectomy surgery? Both…equally…says a new study! (1) Vancouver chiropractic patients would assume Vancouver Spine Care Centre to highlight chiropractic care for lumbar spinal stenosis. Vancouver Spine Care Centre concurs! Vancouver chiropractic care includes many forms of non-surgical care like exercise and nutrition and Vancouver spinal manipulation. Vancouver Spine Care Centre offers Vancouver conservative care that is evidence-based and recorded to work to relieve Vancouver back pain for our Vancouver back pain patients.


Care of lumbar spine stenosis usually is influenced by the severity of symptoms the patient experiences. If there are no traces of serious motor changes or bowel or urinary changes, Vancouver conservative care is first line of care. Patients with serious intermittent claudication who do well with conservative treatment still require particular attention as this disorder is a risk factor for lesser outcomes. (2) Your Vancouver chiropractor watches carefully for these issues that are very odd luckily! Vancouver Spine Care Centre gently and successfully cares for lumbar spinal stenosis.


Lumbar spinal stenosis is a familiar spinal condition in older Vancouver adults. As we age, disc and cartilage degenerate. When discs degenerate, the vertebral bones they separate and support grow nearer each other and cause pain. Spinal stenosis may cause significant worry for people with walking and other everyday activities for which non-surgical care is many times successful in getting them to walk better and do their everyday activities as desired.  (3) Vancouver Spine Care Centre helps ease spinal stenosis related back pain for Vancouver chiropractic patients.


Lumbar spinal stenosis patients want help and are ready to do their job! Australian chiropractors report that they use diversified manipulation for several conditions but selected flexion distraction (Cox Technic) for lumbar disc syndrome with radiculopathy and lumbar central stenosis. Soft tissue and exercise suggestions were used a great deal, too.  (4) Not astonishingly, Vancouver chiropractic patients with spinal stenosis desire treatment plans that are tailored to them explicitly and their unique impairments and limitations. They are prepared to be trained in and do self-care so as to not have to visit healthcare providers as much. In one report patients report that medical care was regularly linked to minimal to no effect on pain! Patients described that exercise enhanced their pain level and function but found these changes to be temporary. What does that mean? Vancouver patients with lumbar spinal stenosis need to perform their exercises all the time not just when in pain. (3) Vancouver Spine Care Centre is the number one supporter of Vancouver chiropractic patients who want to take care of themselves with Vancouver exercise!
