Stenosis. If you are of a certain age, you likely
know spinal stenosis. You have felt its painful
effects yourself or someone near you does. Spinal
stenosis results in back pain, neck pain, arm pain
and/or leg pain (sciatica). It is not much fun at all!
No magic pill heals it or prevents it. But chiropractic
care using the gentle Cox® Technic flexion distraction
spinal manipulation system may ease it, slowly
and steadily. Once on the other side of spinal stenosis’
chiropractic patients are more fully equipped to do what
they can to decrease the odds of future incidents,
armed with exercises, diet tips, daily activities’ modification
tips, and the knowledge that Eugene
chiropractic care at Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic can help.
COX® TECHNIC FOR SPINAL STENOSIS
One of the first ever written and peer-review
published papers by Dr. Cox, developer of Cox® Technic flexion distraction, discussed stenosis. (1) Lately, a comparison study of flexion distraction treatment to
conservative treatment for patients with spinal stenosis revealed
that flexion distraction spinal manipulation was more valuable
for pain decrease and disability improvement. (2)
Another study showed that Cox® flexion distraction manipulation
brought about pain improvement by 76% and disability by 73%.
(3) Today, one of the most recent published papers
points out that there is indication that
chiropractic care is possibly useful for
patients enduring pain due to lumbar
spinal stenosis. It further highlights
that chiropractic treatments of spinal stenosis are most often
flexion-distraction manipulation. (4) That is true at
Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic! Eugene spinal stenosis patients get
reprieve with our Eugene chiropractic services.
FLEXION DISTRACTION FOR STENOSIS-RELATED NEUROGENIC
Neurogenic claudication frequently accompanies lumbar spinal stenosis, causing cramping leg pain for
its Eugene sufferers. Researchers found that treatments two times a week consisting
of manual therapy like lumbar spine flexion distraction (generic term for
Cox® Technic spinal manipulation), soft tissue and neural mobilization,
chiropractic spinal manipulation, and muscle stretching along with structured home-based exercises, and instruction of self-management
strategies lead to improved consequences
(pain, disability, walking ability, treatment satisfaction). (5)
Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic follows a similar chiropractic care system with
our Eugene spinal stenosis patients. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic treats the
whole patient, not just the pain.
