Lumbar Spinal Stenosis Treatment Outcomes: Exercise = Surgery

October 23, 2018

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 highlight chiropractic care for lumbar spinal stenosis. Johnson Chiropractic agrees! Richmond chiropractic care incorporates 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.


Treatment of lumbar spine stenosis often is determined by the severity of symptoms the patient has. If there aren’t any signs 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 need special attention as this disorder is a risk factor for lesser outcomes. (2) Your Richmond chiropractor observes vigilantly for these issues that are very rare luckily! Johnson Chiropractic gently and successfully takes care of lumbar spinal stenosis.


Lumbar spinal stenosis is common spinal condition in older Richmond adults. As we age, disc and cartilage degenerate. When discs degenerate, the vertebral bones they hold apart grow closer together and trigger pain. Spinal stenosis may cause significant trouble for people with walking and other everyday activities for which non-surgical care is many times successful in helping them to walk well again and perform their daily activities as wanted.  (3) Johnson Chiropractic helps ease spinal stenosis related back pain for Richmond chiropractic patients.


Lumbar spinal stenosis patients want relief and are ready to do their part! Australian chiropractors are found to 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, Richmond chiropractic patients with spinal stenosis desire treatment plans that are fitted to them specifically and their own specific impairments and limitations. They are willing to be trained in and do self-care so as to not have to visit healthcare providers so much. In one report patients say that medical care was regularly correlated to minimal to no effect on pain! Patients reported that exercise improved their pain level and function but found these changes to be temporary. What does that mean? Richmond patients with lumbar spinal stenosis need to commit to exercise all the time not just when experiencing pain. (3) Johnson Chiropractic is the number one cheerleader of Richmond chiropractic patients who are ready to take care of themselves with Richmond exercise!
