Lumbar Spinal Stenosis Treatment Outcomes: Exercise = Surgery

What works for Ottawa back pain relief due to lumbar spinal stenosis, exercise or decompression laminectomy surgery? Both…equally…says a new study! (1) Ottawa chiropractic patients would assume The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider to highlight chiropractic care for lumbar spinal stenosis. The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider agrees! Ottawa chiropractic care consists of many types of non-surgical care like exercise and nutrition and Ottawa spinal manipulation. The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider offers Ottawa conservative care that is evidence-based and recorded to work to relieve Ottawa back pain for our Ottawa back pain patients.


Treatment of lumbar spine stenosis often is determined by the severity of symptoms the patient has. If there aren’t any traces of severe motor changes or bowel or urinary changes, Ottawa conservative care is first line of care. Patients with severe intermittent claudication who do well with conservative treatment still need special attention as this disorder is a risk factor for poorer outcomes. (2) Your Ottawa chiropractor watches carefully for these issues that are quite odd fortunately! The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider gently and successfully cares for lumbar spinal stenosis.


Lumbar spinal stenosis is a familiar spinal condition in older Ottawa adults. As we age, disc and cartilage degenerate. When discs degenerate, the vertebral bones they separate and support grow closer together and produce pain. Spinal stenosis may produce significant trouble for people with walking and other daily activities for which non-surgical care is often successful in helping them to walk well again and perform their everyday activities as wanted.  (3) The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider helps ease spinal stenosis related back pain for Ottawa chiropractic patients.


Lumbar spinal stenosis patients want relief and are ready to do their job! Australian chiropractors report that they use diversified manipulation for several conditions but chose flexion distraction (Cox Technic) for lumbar disc syndrome with radiculopathy and lumbar central stenosis. Soft tissue and exercise suggestions were used a lot, too.  (4) Not surprisingly, Ottawa chiropractic patients with spinal stenosis favor treatment plans that are customized to them specifically and their unique impairments and limitations. They are willing to be trained in and do self-care so as to not have to visit healthcare providers as much. In one study patients say that medical care was regularly correlated to minimal to no effect on pain! Patients reported that exercise enhanced their pain level and function but found these changes to be impermanent. What does that mean? Ottawa patients with lumbar spinal stenosis need to commit to exercise all the time not just when in pain. (3) The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider is the number one supporter of Ottawa chiropractic patients who are ready to take care of themselves with Ottawa exercise!
