Chiropractic Treatment Plan With Cycling for Lumbar Spinal Stenosis Pain Relief

Cycling. It is fun. It’s calming. It is a sport all ages can enjoy. It is a method to get relief from spinal stenosis related back pain. Most Chiropractic Clinic is happy to suggest an gratifying exercise option with Murfreesboro chiropractic back pain patients for more Murfreesboro back pain relief.


Lumbar spinal stenosis is the narrowing of the spinal canal area in the low back. Such narrowing follows from issues like degenerative disc disease and disc herniation. Many older Murfreesboro 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 turns out to be a delight just to lean forward over the grocery cart as it feels good! Why? Leaning forward flexes the spine and widens the spinal canal space thereby easing Murfreesboro back pain.


Researchers find that flexion-based training like cycling really 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!


For older patients with lumbar spinal stenosis pain that has 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 frightened of cycling due to fear of pain and fatigue, feeling the bike was too large, believing they didn’t have time to cycle, and not really wanting to do it. (Sound familiar? We can all be like that at times! Murfreesboro folks just have to schedule time to exercise regardless of how old we are!) Those who let go of those concerns and cycled were pleasantly satisfied 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! Most Chiropractic Clinic supports our Murfreesboro chiropractic patients to attempt novel things to assist with their Murfreesboro back pain relief.


Something new that many Murfreesboro chiropractic patients don’t 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 participate in a 4 months’ training program using a stationary bicycle. They cycle at about 70% of maximal capacity. Almost 50% of the patients got better so much that they did not need spinal surgery. (2) Now that is an advantage Murfreesboro lumbar spinal stenosis patients desire!
