  Title Spinal stenosis: Case report with a review of the literature [case report; review]
Journal Chiropr J Aust. 2001 Sep;31(3):82-91
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report
Abstract/Notes This paper discusses the care of a patient with spinal stenosis and reviews some of the neurophysiological research from the past in an attempt to suggest ways in which full-spine adjusting of such patients may result in quantifiable improvement. That chiropractic care is of value in chronic conditions such as spinal stenosis is documented in the literature (e.g. Kirkaldy Willis and Cassidy), but not the extent required by the gatekeepers of the Cochrane Collaboration Back Group. For chiropractors considering referral of patients with spinal stenosis to medical practitioners, a review of current literature is included which shows there is a range of opinion on diagnosis and treatment. Patients initially need conservative forms of care and should be carefully selected for surgery, which will give a satisfactory result for about two out of three patients; nearly one in five will undergo further surgery. Trial research involving chiropractors in the assessment and treatment of those diagnosed with spinal stenosis is recommended on the basis of potential improvements in patient outcomes and reduced expenditure.
