"I feel like I need my spine pulled apart."
- Spinal Stenosis, Degenerative Scoliosis
There are many options for disc herniations, sciatica, spinal stenosis, spondylolisthesis or even non-specific low back pain. As a first choice, chiropractic is a front-line effective treatment for back pain.1,2 Wait times in Ontario for many other options are long. We fill in the gaps in health-care and provide timely, evidence-based treatment. We educate our patients about their diagnosis and options.
Evidence shows that flexion-distraction stimulates specialized cells to produce a healthier bed of nutrients for our joints, discs and cartilage and is an effective intervention for pain and disability among patients with lumbar spinal stenosis.3,4,5 Five to ten sessions of spinal manipulative therapy administered over 2 to 4 weeks achieve equivalent or superior improvement in pain and function when compared with other commonly used interventions, such as physical modalities, medication, education, or exercise, for short, intermediate, and long-term follow-up.6 Dr. James M. Cox first coined the term Flexion-Distraction over 50 years ago. Cox® Flexion-Distraction Decompression (Cox® Technic) uses evidence-based treatment to de-stenose the spinal cord and spinal nerves.7 On average, patients reach maximum improvement in just 12 visits within 29 days.8
Laser therapy is an effective pain reliever that also reduces inflammation and speeds up healing.9-12 We have been using Theralase® lasers at Walkerville Chiropractic since 2005.Combining both Cox® Technic and Theralase® allows us to help you get better.
