Fort Wayne Back Pain Relief via Chiropractic Treatment Plan of Manipulation and Exercise

A new clinical trial is starting that will evaluate the effectiveness of a 6-week specific rehabilitation program blending education and exercises on walking capacity in those who have lumbar spinal stenosis with neurogenic claudication. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic knows these Fort Wayne spinal pain conditions quite well…and delivers a relieving treatment plan of Cox® Technic spinal manipulation and mobilization with exercise!


The aim of this described study is to analyze whether adding an exercise program to an educational program might enhance walking capacity in those who experience lumbar spinal stenosis with neurogenic claudication. Being a randomized controlled clinical trial, 60 participants will be randomly put in either the intervention or control group. The intervention group will get an educational program and an exercise program, while the control group will only receive 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)  Aaron Chiropractic Clinic knows our Fort Wayne spinal stenosis patients are quite interested in these outcomes!


Lumbar spinal stenosis with neurogenic claudication is a spinal issue that produces narrowing of the spinal canal in the low back area, resulting in pressure on the nerves. This can result in pain, numbness, and weakness in the legs and buttocks. In severe cases, it can also cause difficulty walking. The condition is a very common one in people over the age of 50. These are just the folks in Fort Wayne who need to keep (or at least start) exercising!


The specific exercises that will be utilized in this study are made to improve walking capacity by stretching and strengthening the muscles surrounding the spine. The hope is that by performing these exercises on a regular basis, patients will have less pain and disability and have an improved quality of life.


The control group in this trial will only receive an educational program about their condition and how to control it. While education is important, it is not typically enough on its own to deliver significant relief from symptoms. That's why the addition of an exercise program is so important. It includes the back pain patient 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.
