Chiropractic eases conditions like spinal stenosis. Spinal stenosis is everywhere today. Why? An aging population.

Chiropractic care is a solution for many spinal stenosis pain patients.

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 causes less space for the spinal nerves and other elements may bring about spinal stenosis and pain. Surgeons and medical device companies seek surgical means to reduce spinal stenosis and open the spinal canal space12. Conservative care back pain specialists like chiropractors and your Southern New Hampshire chiropractor at New Hampshire Spine and Sport pursue non-surgical means - like Southern New Hampshire spinal manipulation and mobilization which are reported to keep the disc healthy by improved water flow and diffusion (1) - to do the same thing: diminish spinal stenosis and widen the spinal canal area.
Surgical vs Non-Surgical Care
A comparison of surgical and conservative treatments of spinal stenosis explains that conservative care is more positive. At 6 months post-care – surgical or non-surgical – no significant differences are presented 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 do not feel that there is definitive evidence to recommend surgical or non-surgical care to lumbar spinal stenosis sufferers.
