La Grande Back Pain Relief via Chiropractic Treatment Plan of Manipulation and Exercise

A new clinical trial is starting that will study the effectiveness of a 6-week specific rehab program blending education and exercises on walking capacity in patients with lumbar spinal stenosis with neurogenic claudication. Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC knows these La Grande spinal pain conditions quite well…and delivers a relieving treatment plan of Cox® Technic spinal manipulation and mobilization with exercise!


The aim of this described study is to analyze whether adding an exercise program to an educational program can improve walking capacity in sufferers with lumbar spinal stenosis with neurogenic claudication. This is a randomized controlled clinical trial with 60 participants who will be randomly divided into either the control group or the intervention group. The intervention group will receive an educational program and an exercise program, while the control group will only receive the educational program. The main outcome measure is walking capacity, while the secondary outcome measures are pain intensity, disability level, and quality of life. (1)  Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC knows our La Grande spinal stenosis patients are quite interested in these outcomes!


Lumbar spinal stenosis with neurogenic claudication is a condition that produces narrowing of the spinal canal in the low back area, resulting in pressure on the nerves. This can result in pain, numbness, and weakness in the legs and buttocks. In severe cases, it can also cause difficulty walking. The condition is a very common one in people over 50 years old. These are just the folks in La Grande who need to keep (or at least start) exercising!


The particular exercises that will be used in this study are designed to enhance walking capacity by stretching and strengthening the muscles around the spine. The hope is that by performing these exercises on a regular basis, patients will have less pain and disability and have an improved quality of life.


The control group in this trial will only receive an educational program about their condition and how to take care of it. While education is important, it is not typically enough on its own to deliver significant relief from symptoms. That's why adding exercise is so significant. It involves the back pain sufferer in his or her relief! Listen to this PODCAST with Dr. Michael McMurray on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson as he describes The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management for lumbar spinal stenosis.
