What works for St. Francisville back pain relief due to lumbar spinal stenosis, exercise or decompression laminectomy surgery? Both…equally…says a new study! (1) St. Francisville chiropractic patients would expect Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville to emphasize chiropractic care for lumbar spinal stenosis. Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville concurs!

Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville offers St. Francisville conservative care that is evidence-based and documented to work to relieve St. Francisville back pain for our St. Francisville back pain patients.


Treatment of lumbar spine stenosis usually is influenced by the seriousness of symptoms the patient experiences. If there are no signs of severe motor changes or bowel or urinary changes, St. Francisville conservative care is first line of care. Patients with serious intermittent claudication who find relief with conservative treatment still need special attention as this condition is a risk factor for not as good as outcomes. (2) Your St. Francisville chiropractor watches vigilantly for these issues that are quite odd luckily! Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville gently and successfully cares for lumbar spinal stenosis.


Lumbar spinal stenosis is a familiar spinal condition in older St. Francisville adults. As we age, disc and cartilage degenerate. When discs degenerate, the vertebral bones they hold apart grow closer together and trigger pain. Spinal stenosis may trigger significant worry for people as far as walking and other daily activities for which non-surgical care is many times positive for getting them to walk well again and do their daily activities as wanted.  (3) Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville helps ease spinal stenosis related back pain for St. Francisville chiropractic patients.


Lumbar spinal stenosis patients want relief and are eager to do their job! Australian chiropractors report that they use diversified manipulation for several conditions but selected 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, St. Francisville chiropractic patients with spinal stenosis prefer 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 so much. In one study patients report that medical care was most often associated with minimal to no effect on pain! Patients described that exercise enhanced their pain level and function but realized that these changes to be impermanent. What does that mean? St. Francisville patients with lumbar spinal stenosis need to commit to exercise all the time not just when experiencing pain.
