Chiropractic Treatment Plan With Cycling for Lumbar Spinal Stenosis Pain Relief

Cycling. It is fun. It is relaxing. It is a sport all ages can enjoy. It’s a way to get relief from spinal stenosis related back pain. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre is glad to suggest an enjoyable exercise option with Toronto chiropractic back pain patients for more Toronto back pain relief.

WHAT IS LUMBAR SPINAL STENOSIS

Lumbar spinal stenosis is the narrowing of the spinal canal area in the low back. Such narrowing results from issues like degenerative disc disease and disc herniation. Many older Toronto back pain sufferers experience lumbar spinal stenosis. As we get older, our discs lose nutrition and height - more so for some of us than others - which leads to that narrowing. Going to the grocery store turns out to be a joy just to lean forward over the grocery cart as it feels good! Why? Leaning forward flexes the spine and widens the spinal canal space thereby reducing Toronto back pain.

WHY CYCLING

Researchers document that flexion-based training like cycling efficiently reduced back and improved function and quality of life in older people with chronic low back pain. (1) Just getting oxygen flowing is a good thing to improve anyone’s view of life!

HOW CYCLING HELPS RELIEVE Toronto BACK PAIN FROM LUMBAR SPINAL STENOSIS

For older patients with lumbar spinal stenosis pain that has persisted for years, a better quality of life is welcome! One study explored how cycling affected older back pain patients. Their average age was 70.9 years. Some were apprehensive of cycling due to fear of pain and fatigue, feeling the bike was too big, believing they did not have time to cycle, and not really wanting to do it. (Sounds like all of us sometimes! Toronto folks just have to set aside time to exercise regardless of our age!) Those who let go of those issues and cycled were pleasantly satisfied with their clinical improvement (reduced leg pain and disability) and discovered that the bicycle was not bad at all. (1) You never know until you try! Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre encourages our Toronto chiropractic patients to attempt new things to assist with their Toronto back pain relief.

CYCLING HELPS AVOID BACK SURGERY

Something new that many Toronto chiropractic patients don’t fancy trying is back surgery. When the pain is bad, a back surgery sounds like a solution. In a study done at a spine surgery center, patients with lumbar spinal stenosis and low back pain undergo a 4 months’ training program riding a stationary bicycle. They cycle at about 70% of maximal capacity. Nearly half of the patients improved so much that they did not need spinal surgery. (2) Now that is a benefit Toronto lumbar spinal stenosis patients want!
