Chiropractic eases conditions like
spinal stenosis. Spinal stenosis is everywhere today. Why?
An aging population. We are all aging, and when we achieve a
certain age, our bodies compensate us with conditions like spinal
stenosis. There is no problem, though! Chiropractic care is a solution
for many spinal stenosis pain patients. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre offers gentle,
evidence-based chiropractic care in the form of Cox Technic to help control and
relieve back pain due to spinal stenosis.
Lumbar Spinal Stenosis
Lumbar spinal stenosis may result from
a variety of issues like a disc herniation, disc bulge or
contained disc, synovial cyst. Any issue that narrows
the spinal canal area that allows
less space for the spinal nerves and other elements may bring
about spinal stenosis and pain. Surgeons and medical device companies
offer surgical means to reduce spinal stenosis and open the
spinal canal space12. Conservative care back pain specialists like
chiropractors and your Toronto chiropractor at Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre offer
non-surgical means - like Toronto spinal manipulation and
mobilization which are shown to keep the
disc healthy by improved water flow and diffusion (1) - to do the same thing:
diminish spinal stenosis and widen the spinal canal
Surgical vs Non-Surgical Care
A comparison of surgical and conservative treatments of
spinal stenosis explains that conservative care is more positive. At 6 months post-care – surgical or
non-surgical – no significant differences are reported in
the spinal stenosis patients. At 12 and 24 months post-care, the surgical
spinal stenosis patients report higher disability scores. Surgical
spinal stenosis patients experienced 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 conclusive evidence to
endorse surgical or non-surgical care to lumbar spinal stenosis
sufferers. (2) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre submits that a trial of 30
days seeking 50% improvement for most Toronto back

Early Improvement Under Care
Those spinal stenosis patients who show 33% to
50% improvement in pain at 2 weeks of care have better
odds of 6 to 7 times greater to have 50% improvement
at their 6 months’ disability follow up. (3) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre looks for
Toronto pain relief as early as possible, and the treatment plan is established with this in mind. In some cases,
a small percent of patients, Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre may consult a Toronto spinal stenosis patient daily
at the start of care. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre takes good care of

And lastly Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre relies on its experienced
clinical judgment and evidence of a patient’s not improving as expected to
