Stenosis. If you are a bit older, you likely
are familiar with spinal stenosis. You experienced its painful
results 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 cures it or prevents it. But chiropractic
care using the gentle Cox® Technic flexion distraction
spinal manipulation system may ease it, gradually
and steadily. After the spinal stenosis pain is better, East Setauket
chiropractic patients are more fully equipped to do what
they can to decrease the chances of future episodes,
armed with exercises, diet tips, daily activities’ modification
ideas, and the experience that East Setauket
chiropractic care at Complete Health Medical P.C. 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, was
about stenosis. (1) Lately, a comparison study of flexion distraction treatment to
conservative treatment for patients with spinal stenosis showed
that flexion distraction spinal manipulation was more valuable
for pain reduction and disability recovery. (2)
Another study presented that Cox® flexion distraction manipulation
resulted in pain improvement by 76% and disability by 73%.
(3) Today, one of the most recent published reports
points out that there is evidence that
chiropractic care is potentially beneficial for
patients experiencing pain of lumbar
spinal stenosis. It additionally stresses
that chiropractic treatments of spinal stenosis are most often
flexion-distraction manipulation. (4) That is true at
Complete Health Medical P.C.! East Setauket spinal stenosis patients obtain
reprieve with our East Setauket chiropractic services.
FLEXION DISTRACTION FOR STENOSIS-RELATED NEUROGENIC
Neurogenic claudication frequently comes
with lumbar spinal stenosis, causing cramping leg pain for
its East Setauket sufferers. Researchers discovered that treatments two times a week including 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 as well
as structured home-based exercises, and instruction of self-management
strategies resulted in improved outcomes
(pain, disability, walking ability, treatment satisfaction). (5)
Complete Health Medical P.C. follows a similar chiropractic care system with
our East Setauket spinal stenosis patients. Complete Health Medical P.C. treats the
whole patient, not only the pain.
