Spinal stenosis is one of the leading causes of back pain, especially in the older population. It has no cure and in severe cases may require surgery but there are methods that can help to reduce the symptoms of spinal stenosis before surgery becomes necessary, including chiropractic care and non-surgical spinal decompression.

If you are looking for a chiropractor in Shreveport who has the expertise to help you with spinal stenosis, then Zahn Chiropractic Clinic is a great option. They are highly rated and qualified in helping patients who are dealing with spinal stenosis to reduce their symptoms and improve their quality of life.

What is spinal stenosis?

Your spinal cord runs the length of your spine and it is contained within a canal. This canal helps to protect the nerves in your spinal cord but it can also be affected by certain diseases, such as osteoarthritis, and back injuries which can cause it to narrow. This narrowing compresses the spinal cord and/or the nerves that branch out from the spinal cord to the muscles in the rest of your body and can cause a range of symptoms, including:

  • pain/numbness/weakening/tingling in your legs
  • loss of sensation in the feet and “feet drop” where your feet slap down when you are walking
  • lower back pain
  • sciatica

Spinal stenosis is a serious medical condition and in severe cases can cause permanent nerve damage. If you experience a loss of control over your bladder or bowels, severe or increasing numbness in your inner thighs, between your legs, or at the back of your legs, severe pain or weakness in one or both legs that stop you from being able to get up or walk, then you need to seek medical attention immediately.

In less severe cases, therapies like chiropractic care and non-surgical spinal decompression can help to relieve the symptoms of spinal stenosis.

 

Chiropractic care and spinal stenosis
Spinal stenosis has no cure but, with that being said, there are methods of reducing the pain and symptoms associated with the disease. One of which is chiropractic care. A skilled chiropractor will deeply investigate exactly where the narrowing of your spinal canal is occurring and will direct a range of treatments that can help to correct any misalignment of your spine that could be contributing to the problem, reduce your muscle tension and inflammation, and create more space for your nerves.

Non-surgical Spinal Decompression for Spinal Stenosis

With non-surgical spinal decompression, you lie on a motorized table that is precisely controlled by a computer to gently stretch and relax your spine in specific intervals. For spinal stenosis, this method can help to reduce any contributing problems, such as a herniated disc, and relieve pressure on the nerves in and surrounding your spine. This can reduce your pain and symptoms.

Spinal stenosis is a life-long condition so finding the right treatment plan to manage your symptoms and optimize your quality of life is essential. Chiropractic care and non-surgical spinal decompression can both help greatly in reducing your symptoms and any contributing problems so that you can have some relief from spinal stenosis.
