Chiropractic Treatment Plan With Cycling for Lumbar Spinal Stenosis Pain Relief

Cycling. It’s fun. It is calming. It is a sport all ages can enjoy. It’s a way to get relief from spinal stenosis related back pain. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic is happy to suggest an gratifying exercise option with Fernandina Beach chiropractic back pain patients for more Fernandina Beach 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 stems from issues like degenerative disc disease and disc herniation. In older folks, lumbar spinal stenosis is common. As we age, 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 joy just to lean forward over the grocery cart as it relieves pain! Why? Leaning forward flexes the spine and widens the spinal canal space thus reducing Fernandina Beach back pain.

WHY CYCLING

Researchers report that flexion-based training like cycling efficiently reduced back and enhanced function and quality of life in older people with chronic low back pain. (1) Improving the oxygen flow is a good thing to improve anyone’s attitude!

HOW CYCLING HELPS RELIEVE Fernandina Beach BACK PAIN FROM LUMBAR SPINAL STENOSIS

For older patients with lumbar spinal stenosis pain that has persisted for years, an improved quality of life is welcome! One study explored how cycling affected older back pain patients. Their average age was 70.9 years. Some were uneasy of cycling due to fear of pain and fatigue, thinking the bike was too big, believing they didn’t have time to cycle, and not being motivated to participate in cycling. (Sounds like all of us at times! Fernandina Beach folks do need to set aside time to exercise regardless of our age!) Those who got over those concerns and cycled were pleasantly satisfied with their clinical improvement (reduced leg pain and disability) and discovered that the bicycle was simple. (1) You never know until you try! Amelia Chiropractic Clinic encourages our Fernandina Beach chiropractic patients to attempt novel things to assist with their Fernandina Beach back pain relief.

CYCLING HELPS AVOID BACK SURGERY

Something new that many Fernandina Beach chiropractic patients do not want to try is back surgery. When the pain is really uncomfortable, a back surgery may appear like an answer. In a study done at a spine surgery center, patients with lumbar spinal stenosis and low back pain do 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 require spinal surgery. (2) Now that is a benefit Fernandina Beach lumbar spinal stenosis patients want!
