Lumbar Spinal Stenosis
Lumbar spinal stenosis may result from
any of a number of issues like a disc herniation, disc bulge or
contained disc, synovial cyst. Anything that shrinks
the spinal canal area that causes
less space for the spinal nerves and other elements may cause spinal stenosis and pain. Surgeons and medical device companies
look for surgical means to reduce spinal stenosis and open the
spinal canal space12. Conservative care back pain specialists like
chiropractors and your Ottawa chiropractor at The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider seek
non-surgical means - like Ottawa spinal manipulation and
mobilization which are reported to positively affect the water flow
and diffusion into the disc, keeping it healthy (1) - to do the same thing:
reduce spinal stenosis and open the spinal canal
Surgical vs Non-Surgical Care
A comparison of surgical and conservative treatments of
spinal stenosis demonstrates 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 suffered higher
complication rates than the conservative care spinal stenosis patients. Based
on their reviews of the published data, the researchers still don’t
feel that there is definitive proof to
endorse surgical or non-surgical care to lumbar spinal stenosis
sufferers. (2) The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider suggests that a trial of 30
