Chiropractic eases conditions like
spinal stenosis. Spinal stenosis is everywhere today. Why?
An aging population. We are all aging, and when we get to a
certain age, our bodies compensate us with conditions like spinal
stenosis. There is no problem, though! Chiropractic care is a solution
for many spinal stenosis pain patients. Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC 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 be the result of
a variety of issues like a disc herniation, disc bulge or
contained disc, synovial cyst. Any condition that shrinks
the spinal canal area that allows
reduced space for the spinal nerves and other elements may cause spinal stenosis and pain. Surgeons and medical device companies
seek surgical means to reduce spinal stenosis and open the
spinal canal area. Conservative care back pain specialists like
chiropractors and your La Grande chiropractor at Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC offer
non-surgical means - like La Grande spinal manipulation and
mobilization which are shown to keep the
disc healthy by improved water flow and diffusion (1) - to do the same thing:
reduce spinal stenosis and widen the spinal canal
Surgical vs Non-Surgical Care
A comparison of surgical and conservative treatments of
spinal stenosis shows that conservative care is more positive. At 6 months post-care – surgical or
non-surgical – no significant differences are noted 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 underwent 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 conclusive proof to
recommend surgical or non-surgical care to lumbar spinal stenosis
sufferers. (2) Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC submits that a trial of 30
days seeking 50% improvement for most La Grande back
pain patients with research-documented chiropractic care following the
protocols of the Cox Technic System of Care. Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC is a reasonable
place to start!
Early Improvement Under Care
Those spinal stenosis patients who show 33% to
50% improvement in pain at 2 weeks of care have better
odds of 6 to 7 times higher to exhibit 50% improvement
at their 6 months’ disability follow up. (3) Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC looks for
La Grande pain relief as early as possible, and the treatment plan is geared
that way. With some patients,
a small percent of patients, Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC may see a La Grande spinal stenosis patient on a daily basis
in the beginning. Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC takes good care of
our La Grande lumbar spinal stenosis patients!
And lastly Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC relies on its experienced
clinical judgment and evidence of a patient’s not improving as expected to
order more imaging or schedule a surgical consultation if needed. (4) It’s fully
outlined in the algorithms of decision making that guide
our Cox Technic system of spine pain management and lumbar spinal stenosis.
