Stenosis. If you are a bit older, you probably know spinal stenosis. You have felt its hurting effects yourself or someone near you does. Spinal stenosis causes back pain, neck pain, arm pain and/or leg pain (sciatica). It’s no fun! No magic pill cures it or prevents it. But chiropractic care incorporating the gentle Cox® Technic flexion distraction spinal manipulation system may relieve it, slowly and bit by bit. After the spinal stenosis pain is better, Southern New Hampshire chiropractic patients are more fully equipped to do what they can to reduce the chances of future episodes, armed with exercises, diet tips, daily activities’ modification ideas, and the knowledge that Southern New Hampshire chiropractic care at New Hampshire Spine and Sport can help.
COX® TECHNIC FOR SPINAL STENOSIS
One of the original written and peer-review published papers by Dr. Cox, developer of Cox® Technic flexion distraction, was about stenosis. (1) More recently, a comparison study of flexion distraction treatment to conservative treatment for patients with spinal stenosis revealed that flexion distraction spinal manipulation was more effective for pain reduction and disability improvement. (2) Another study presented that Cox® flexion distraction manipulation resulted in pain improvement by 76% and disability by 73%. (3) Today, one of the newest published reports indicates that there is evidence that chiropractic care is possibly beneficial for patients experiencing pain of lumbar spinal stenosis. It further stresses that chiropractic treatments of spinal stenosis are most often flexion-distraction manipulation. (4) That is true at New Hampshire Spine and Sport! Southern New Hampshire spinal stenosis patients obtain reprieve with our Southern New Hampshire chiropractic services.
FLEXION DISTRACTION FOR STENOSIS-RELATED NEUROGENIC CLAUDICATION
Neurogenic claudication frequently comes with lumbar spinal stenosis, causing cramping leg pain for its Southern New Hampshire sufferers. Researchers discovered that twice a week treatment 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 resulted in improved consequences (pain, disability, walking ability, treatment satisfaction). (5) New Hampshire Spine and Sport follows a similar chiropractic care system with our Southern New Hampshire spinal stenosis patients. New Hampshire Spine and Sport treats the whole person, not just the pain.
