Chiropractic Treatment Plan With Cycling for Lumbar Spinal Stenosis Pain Relief

Cycling. It’s fun. It is calming. It is a sport all ages can enjoy. It’s a way to get relief from spinal stenosis related back pain. Tarrytown Chiropractic is glad to suggest an enjoyable exercise option with Tarrytown chiropractic back pain patients for added Tarrytown 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. 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 becomes a joy just to lean forward over the grocery cart as it relieves pain! Why? Leaning forward flexes the spine and widens the spinal canal space thereby easing Tarrytown 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 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 frightened 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! Tarrytown folks just have to schedule time to exercise regardless of our age!) 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 simple. (1) You never know until you try! Tarrytown Chiropractic supports our Tarrytown chiropractic patients to attempt novel things to assist with their Tarrytown back pain relief.


Something new that many Tarrytown chiropractic patients don’t want to try is back surgery. When the pain is bad, a back surgery seems like an answer. In a study conducted 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 half of the patients got better so much that they did not need spinal surgery. (2) Now that is a benefit Tarrytown lumbar spinal stenosis patients want!
