Chiropractic Treatment Plan With Cycling for Lumbar Spinal Stenosis Pain Relief

Cycling. It is fun. It’s relaxing. It’s a sport all ages can enjoy. It’s a way to get relief from spinal stenosis related back pain. Moses Chiropractic is glad to share an enjoyable exercise option with West Palm Beach chiropractic back pain patients for additional West Palm Beach back pain relief.


Lumbar spinal stenosis is the narrowing of the spinal canal area in the low back. Such narrowing results from spinal conditions like degenerative disc disease and disc herniation. Many older West Palm Beach back pain sufferers experience 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 becomes a thrill just to lean forward over the grocery cart as it relieves pain! Why? Leaning forward flexes the spine and opens the spinal canal space thereby easing West Palm Beach back pain.


Researchers report that flexion-based training like cycling really 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!


For older patients with lumbar spinal stenosis pain that has lasted for years, a better 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 apprehensive of cycling due to fear of pain and fatigue, thinking the bike was too large, believing they didn’t have time to cycle, and not being motivated to do it. (Sound familiar? We can all be like that at times! West Palm Beach folks just have to schedule time to exercise regardless of our age!) Those who let go of those issues and cycled were pleasantly satisfied with their clinical improvement (reduced leg pain and disability) and realized that the bicycle was not bad at all. (1) You never know until you try! Moses Chiropractic encourages our West Palm Beach chiropractic patients to attempt new things to help with their West Palm Beach back pain relief.


Something new that many West Palm Beach chiropractic patients don’t fancy trying is back surgery. When the pain is really uncomfortable, a back surgery sounds like a solution. In a study conducted at a spine surgery center, patients with lumbar spinal stenosis and low back pain undergo a 4 months’ training program riding a stationary bicycle. They cycle at about 70% of maximal capacity. Almost half of the patients got better so much that they did not need spinal surgery. (2) Now that is a benefit West Palm Beach lumbar spinal stenosis patients want!
