Chiropractic Treatment Plan With Cycling for Lumbar Spinal Stenosis Pain Relief

Cycling. It’s fun. It is relaxing. It’s a sport all ages can enjoy. It’s a way to get relief from spinal stenosis related back pain. Wilson Family Chiropractic is glad to suggest an enjoyable exercise option with Millville chiropractic back pain patients for added Millville back pain relief.


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 familiar. As we age, our discs lose nutrition and height - more so for some of us than others - which leads to that narrowing. Grocery shopping comes to be a thrill just to lean forward over the grocery cart as it feels good! Why? Leaning forward flexes the spine and opens the spinal canal space thus easing Millville back pain.


Researchers document that flexion-based training like cycling effectively 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 view of life!


For older patients with lumbar spinal stenosis pain that’s persisted for years, a better 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, feeling they did not have time to cycle, and not being motivated to do it. (Sound familiar? We can all be like that sometimes! Millville folks just have to schedule time to exercise regardless of our age!) Those who got over those issues and cycled were pleased with their clinical improvement (reduced leg pain and disability) and realized that the bicycle was simple. (1) You never know until you try! Wilson Family Chiropractic urges our Millville chiropractic patients to attempt novel things to help with their Millville back pain relief.


Something new that many Millville chiropractic patients do not want to try is back surgery. When the pain is bad, a back surgery may appear like a solution. In a study conducted at a spine surgery center, patients with lumbar spinal stenosis and low back pain do a 4 months’ training program using a stationary bicycle. They cycle at about 70% of maximal capacity. Nearly 50% of the patients improved so much that they did not need spinal surgery. (2) Now that is a benefit Millville lumbar spinal stenosis patients desire!
