Lumbar Spinal Stenosis Treatment Outcomes: Exercise = Surgery

What succeeds for Eugene back pain relief due to lumbar spinal stenosis, exercise or decompression laminectomy surgery? Both…equally…says a new study! (1) Eugene chiropractic patients would expect Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic to highlight chiropractic care for lumbar spinal stenosis. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic agrees! Eugene chiropractic care consists of many types of non-surgical care like exercise and nutrition and Eugene spinal manipulation. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic offers Eugene conservative care that is evidence-based and documented to work to ease Eugene back pain for our Eugene back pain patients.


Care of lumbar spine stenosis often is determined by the severity of symptoms the patient has. If there aren’t any signs of severe motor changes or bowel or urinary changes, Eugene conservative care is an appropriate approach to pain relief. Patients with severe intermittent claudication who do well with conservative treatment still need particular attention as this condition is a risk factor for not as good as outcomes. (2) Your Eugene chiropractor observes cautiously for these issues that are quite rare fortunately! Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic gently and effectively cares for lumbar spinal stenosis.


Lumbar spinal stenosis is a familiar spinal condition in older Eugene adults. As we age, disc and cartilage degenerate. When discs degenerate, the vertebral bones they hold apart grow closer together and cause pain. Spinal stenosis may produce significant worry for people with walking and other daily activities for which non-surgical care is often successful in helping them to walk better and do their everyday activities as wanted.  (3) Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic helps ease spinal stenosis related back pain for Eugene 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 chose flexion distraction (Cox Technic) for lumbar disc syndrome with radiculopathy and lumbar central stenosis. Soft tissue and exercise suggestions were implemented a great deal, too.  (4) Not astonishingly, Eugene chiropractic patients with spinal stenosis prefer treatment plans that are customized 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 so much. In one study patients say that medical care was regularly linked to minimal to no effect on pain! Patients described that exercise improved their pain level and function but realized that these changes to be temporary. What does that mean? Eugene patients with lumbar spinal stenosis need to perform their exercises all the time not just when experiencing pain. (3) Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic is the number one cheerleader of Eugene chiropractic patients who are ready to take care of themselves with Eugene exercise!
