Lumbar Spinal Stenosis 

Lumbar spinal stenosis may be the result of a variety of issues like a disc herniation, disc bulge or contained disc, synovial cyst. Anything that narrows the spinal canal area resulting in reduced 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 West Des Moines chiropractor at Executive Chiropractic of Iowa offer non-surgical means - like West Des Moines spinal manipulation and mobilization which reportedly positively affect the water flow and diffusion into the disc, keeping it healthy (1) - to do the same thing: diminish spinal stenosis and open the spinal canal area.

Surgical vs Non-Surgical Care 

A comparison of surgical and conservative treatments of spinal stenosis shows that conservative care leads in outcomes. 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 had higher disability scores. Surgical spinal stenosis patients experienced higher complication rates than the conservative care spinal stenosis patients.
