Chiropractic relieves conditions like
spinal stenosis. Spinal stenosis is all around us today. Why?
An aging population. We are all aging, and when we achieve a
certain age, our bodies reward us with conditions like spinal
stenosis. There is no problem, though! Chiropractic care is a solution
for many spinal stenosis pain patients. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center offers gentle,
evidence-based chiropractic care in the form of Cox Technic to help control and
relieve back pain due to spinal stenosis.
Lumbar Spinal Stenosis
Lumbar spinal stenosis may result from
a variety of issues like a disc herniation, disc bulge or
contained disc, synovial cyst. Any issue that narrows
the spinal canal area that results in
less space for the spinal nerves and other elements may cause spinal stenosis and pain. Surgeons and medical device companies
look for surgical means to reduce spinal stenosis and open the
spinal canal space12. Conservative care back pain specialists like
chiropractors and your Pensacola chiropractor at Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center seek
non-surgical means - like Pensacola spinal manipulation and
mobilization which reportedly keep the
disc healthy by improved water flow and diffusion (1) - to do the same thing:
diminish spinal stenosis and open the spinal canal
Surgical vs Non-Surgical Care
A comparison of surgical and conservative treatments of
spinal stenosis explains that conservative care is better. At 6 months post-care – surgical or
non-surgical – no significant differences are reported in
the spinal stenosis patients. At 12 and 24 months post-care, the surgical
spinal stenosis patients had higher disability scores. Surgical
spinal stenosis patients experienced higher
complication rates than the conservative care spinal stenosis patients. Based
on their reviews of the published data, the researchers still don’t
feel that there is definitive proof to
recommend surgical or non-surgical care to lumbar spinal stenosis
sufferers. (2) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center suggests that a trial of 30
days looking for 50% improvement for most Pensacola back

at their 6 months’ disability follow up. (3) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center seeks
