New Roads Back Pain Relief via Chiropractic Treatment Plan of Manipulation and Exercise

A new clinical trial is starting that will examine the effectiveness of a 6-week specific rehab program combining education and exercises on walking capacity in those who have lumbar spinal stenosis with neurogenic claudication. New Roads Chiropractic Center knows these New Roads spinal pain conditions very well…and offers a relieving treatment plan of Cox® Technic spinal manipulation and mobilization with exercise!


The aim of this described study is to analyze whether the addition of an exercise program to an educational program might enhance walking capacity in sufferers with lumbar spinal stenosis with neurogenic claudication. This is a randomized controlled clinical trial with 60 participants who will be randomly assigned to either the control group or the intervention group. The intervention group will get an educational program plus an exercise program, while the control group will only get the educational program. The main outcome measure is walking capacity, while the secondary outcome measures are pain intensity, disability level, and quality of life. (1)  New Roads Chiropractic Center knows our New Roads spinal stenosis patients are quite interested in these outcomes!


Lumbar spinal stenosis with neurogenic claudication is a condition that produces narrowing of the spinal canal in the lower back region, which in turn puts pressure on the nerves. This can result in pain, numbness, and weakness in the legs and buttocks. In severe cases, it can also make walking quite difficult. The condition is most common in people over 50 years old. These are just the people in New Roads who need to keep (or at least begin) exercising!


The specific exercises that will be employed in this trial are made to enhance walking capacity by stretching and strengthening the muscles around the spine. The hope is that by performing these exercises on a regular basis, patients will have less pain and disability and have a better quality of life.


The control group in this trial will only get an educational program about their condition and how to take care of it. While education is valuable, it is not usually enough on its own to provide significant relief from symptoms. That's why adding exercise is so valuable. It includes the back pain sufferer in his or her relief! Listen to this PODCAST with Dr. Michael McMurray on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson as he describes The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management for lumbar spinal stenosis.
