Chiropractic Treatment Plan With Cycling for Lumbar Spinal Stenosis Pain Relief

Cycling. It’s fun. It’s relaxing. It is a sport (most!) anyone can enjoy. It is a method to get relief from spinal stenosis related back pain. Innate Wisdom is glad to share an gratifying exercise option with New York City chiropractic back pain patients for added New York City 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 New York City back pain sufferers are diagnosed with 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 comes to be a thrill just to lean forward over the grocery cart as it relieves pain! Why? Leaning forward flexes the spine and widens the spinal canal space thereby easing New York City back pain.

WHY CYCLING

Researchers find that flexion-based training like cycling effectively 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 outlook on life!

HOW CYCLING HELPS RELIEVE New York City BACK PAIN FROM LUMBAR SPINAL STENOSIS

For older patients with lumbar spinal stenosis pain that has lasted for years, an improved quality of life is welcome! In one study of the effect of cycling on back pain in older patients with spinal stenosis, patients were 70.9 years of age. Some were frightened of cycling due to fear of pain and fatigue, thinking the bike was too large, believing they did not have time to cycle, and not really wanting to participate in cycling. (Sounds like all of us at times! New York City folks do need to schedule time to exercise no matter our age!) Those who let go of those issues and cycled were pleased with their clinical improvement (reduced leg pain and disability) and realized that the bicycle was easy to use. (1) You never know until you try! Innate Wisdom supports our New York City chiropractic patients to attempt novel things to help with their New York City back pain relief.

CYCLING HELPS AVOID BACK SURGERY

Something new that many New York City chiropractic patients do not want to try is back surgery. When the pain is bad, a back surgery seems like an answer. In a study done at a spine surgery center, patients with lumbar spinal stenosis and low back pain participate in a 4 months’ training program riding a stationary bicycle. They cycle at about 70% of maximal capacity. Nearly 50% of the patients got better so much that they did not need spinal surgery. (2) Now that is an advantage New York City lumbar spinal stenosis patients want!
