RESEARCH UPDATE: Spinal Stenosis

Spinal Stenosis - West Des Moines Chiropractor - Vero Chiropractic

You may (or may not) be surprised to learn that chiropractic care is one of the best care options for people suffering from spinal stenosis in West Des Moines.

Lumbar radiculopathy is a common and debilitating problem for many people. Fortunately, only a small number of these individuals deteriorate to the point of needing surgical intervention.

However, the successful conservative management of people suffering from spinal stenosis has been challenging for many primary care physicians.

The research supporting chiropractic as a treatment option is really strong and our friends at The Evidence Based Chiropractor have put together a Research Summary on how chiropractic care can help patients see improvements in their spinal stenosis symptoms and even prevent surgical measures.

A few key stats:

Improvement was self-described as “good” or “excellent’ in 80% of patients.

Nearly 90% of patients reported their outcome to be either “excellent” or “good”. These improvements were maintained 14.5 months after cessation of treatment.

Clinically meaningful improvements in pain and disability were seen in 79% and 73% of patients, respectively.

“You never know how far reaching something you may think, say or do today will affect the lives of millions tomorrow.”
