Lumbar Spinal Stenosis Treatment Outcomes: Exercise = Surgery

What succeeds for Richmond back pain relief due to lumbar spinal stenosis, exercise or decompression laminectomy surgery? Both…equally…says a new study! (1) Richmond chiropractic patients would assume Johnson Chiropractic to emphasize chiropractic care for lumbar spinal stenosis. Johnson Chiropractic agrees! Richmond chiropractic care consists of many forms of non-surgical care like exercise and nutrition and Richmond spinal manipulation. Johnson Chiropractic offers Richmond conservative care that is evidence-based and recorded to work to relieve Richmond back pain for our Richmond back pain patients.


Care of lumbar spine stenosis often is influenced by the seriousness of symptoms the patient has. If there aren’t any traces of serious motor changes or bowel or urinary changes, Richmond conservative care is a suitable approach to pain relief. Patients with serious intermittent claudication who find relief with conservative treatment still require particular attention as this disorder is a risk factor for poorer outcomes. (2) Your Richmond chiropractor observes cautiously for these issues that are very odd luckily! Johnson Chiropractic gently and effectively takes care of lumbar spinal stenosis.


Lumbar spinal stenosis is a familiar spinal condition in older Richmond 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 trouble for people as far as walking and other everyday activities for which non-surgical care is many times positive for getting them to walk well again and do their everyday activities as wanted.  (3) Johnson Chiropractic helps ease spinal stenosis related back pain for Richmond chiropractic patients.


Lumbar spinal stenosis patients want help and are eager to do their part! Australian chiropractors report that they use diversified manipulation for many conditions but chose 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, Richmond chiropractic patients with spinal stenosis favor treatment plans that are fitted to them specifically and their unique impairments and limitations. They are willing to learn self-care in order to not be required to visit healthcare providers so much. In one report patients say that medical care was regularly associated with minimal to no effect on pain! Patients described that exercise enhanced their pain level and function but realized that these changes to be short-lived. What does that mean? Richmond patients with lumbar spinal stenosis need to perform their exercises all the time not just when in pain. (3) Johnson Chiropractic is the biggest cheerleader of Richmond chiropractic patients who want to take care of themselves with Richmond exercise!
