What Can Be Done About Spinal Stenosis?

First off, what is spinal stenosis and how do you know if you need any type of treatment from a Brisbane doctor or chiropractor? Spinal stenosis is what is known as a compromise of the spinal canal when the volume of the canal decreases, this usually comes with age. Every person's spinal cord size and their canal size is different and so the risk factors will also vary. Spinal Stenosis is often very gradual and will get worse with movement. There are several options for treatment that include chiropractic care as well as surgery.

The symptoms of spinal stenosis usually show up in a person who has had a long history in Brisbane of spinal pain or injuries to their spine. Typically it will begin in the legs and can become much worse when a person walks or exercises. This pain in the legs that occurs during walking is called neurogenic claudication. Sometimes it is hard to tell the difference between neurogenic claudicatioin and vascular claudication which is caused by the blood supply to the legs being poor and unable to support the tissues and the muscles in the legs.

For those who have neurogenic claudication with their spinal stenosis in Brisbane will find that walking uphill is a lot better because it bends the spine forward while they are walking. However, walking downhill is a lot more difficult because this will arch the spine in the back and then pushes the spinal cord closer to the vertebrae and will often increase the pain.

The diagnosis for spinal stenosis can be confirmed by looking at the canal space in a person's back by performing a CT Scan or an MRI. They can also confirm if the patient has electromyography at the same time. The reason why it is difficult to diagnosis with an X-ray is because the spinal canal cannot be seen on an X-ray.

The treatment for spinal stenosis in the past has most often been surgery for those patients suffering from the disorder. However, that has started to change. More doctors are starting to recommend alternatives to surgery first. One very popular alternative has been chiropractic care. A chiropractor will focus on what they call subluxation of the spine. This is when a vertebrae doesn't move well as it should and then the result is the bone and surrounding tissue structures will then put pressure on the nerves and the spinal cord.

Over time when there is lack of motion in the spine, the spaces between the discs are going to decrease and then arthritis can set in. When a patient has a chiropractic adjustment it will balance out the nervous system and gets the joints moving again and will often reduce the symptoms that patients suffer from with spinal stenosis. By using a combination of flexion based exercise programs and chiropractic adjustments can help a lot of patients suffering from this disorder.
