Lumbar Spinal Stenosis Treatment Outcomes: Exercise = Surgery

What succeeds for La Grande back pain relief due to lumbar spinal stenosis, exercise or decompression laminectomy surgery? Both…equally…says a new study! (1) La Grande chiropractic patients would expect Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC to stress chiropractic care for lumbar spinal stenosis. Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC concurs! La Grande chiropractic care incorporates many forms of non-surgical care like exercise and nutrition and La Grande spinal manipulation. Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC offers La Grande conservative care that is evidence-based and documented to work to ease La Grande back pain for our La Grande back pain patients.


Care of lumbar spine stenosis often depends on the seriousness of symptoms the patient suffers. If there aren’t any signs of severe motor changes or bowel or urinary changes, La Grande conservative care is first line of care. Patients with severe intermittent claudication who do well with conservative treatment still require special attention as this disorder is a risk factor for not as good as outcomes. (2) Your La Grande chiropractor observes vigilantly for these issues that are quite rare luckily! Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC gently and effectively cares for lumbar spinal stenosis.


Lumbar spinal stenosis is a familiar spinal condition in older La Grande adults. As we age, disc and cartilage degenerate. When discs degenerate, the vertebral bones they hold apart grow closer together and cause pain. Spinal stenosis may cause considerable worry for people with walking and other everyday activities for which non-surgical care is often positive for helping them to walk better and do their daily activities as wanted.  (3) Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC helps relieve spinal stenosis related back pain for La Grande chiropractic patients.


Lumbar spinal stenosis patients want help and are ready to do their role! Australian chiropractors are found to use diversified manipulation for many conditions but chose flexion distraction (Cox Technic) for lumbar disc syndrome with radiculopathy and lumbar central stenosis. Soft tissue and exercise recommendations were implemented a great deal, too.  (4) Not astonishingly, La Grande chiropractic patients with spinal stenosis desire treatment plans that are fitted to them explicitly and their own specific impairments and limitations. They are eager to be trained in and do self-care in order to not be required to visit healthcare providers so much. In one report patients say that medical care was most often correlated to minimal to no effect on pain! Patients described that exercise improved their pain level and function but found these changes to be impermanent. What does that mean? La Grande patients with lumbar spinal stenosis need to perform their exercises all the time not just when experiencing pain. (3) Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC is the biggest supporter of La Grande chiropractic patients who are ready to take care of themselves with La Grande exercise!
