I don't believe that a chiropractor can do anything about stenosis. Since it is the narrowing of the spinal canal.

Chiropractic (and I've long been a cheerleader for chiropractic) probably can't help this issue. IF you have pain...maybe P.T. can help with that. BUT stenosis can be a complicated issue. I have it, along with degenerative disc disease and some other back issues. I've already had a dissectomy as well as steroid shots, which I won't do again as they're a band-aide. I'd speak to your pcp and go from there.

Also, don't fall for the ads re: "we can help with this".....you'll just be out the $$$ and still have the issue.

I agree. But, there are a lot of chiropractors who will treat you for it and charge you.

Also, avoid the 'stem cell' clinics, FDA approves stem cell procedures for one and only one situation.

Default Bad Back

This worked for my dad who had herniated disc. He tried it all: chiropractic, acupuncture, magnets in shoes, water bed, air bed, latex bed, the rack (stretching on machine at chiropractor), hot pack, cold pack, vibrator pads on various places on his back by chiropractor, epidural injections, injections up thru his tailbone, and narcotic pain pills. He finally had surgery and the pain went away for 4-5 months. Then it came back with a vengeance. Back surgeon said that 10% have a problem and that it was probably scar tissue. He could operate again. Ok, so another round of chiropractic, acupuncture, etc. - you get the picture. He then tried an old home remedy: 2 teaspoons of Certo (fruit pectin used for making jelly - with the canning jars at Publix or WalMart) in 3 ounces of grape juice 3 times a day. After 7-10 days, no pain. He old, fat, and out of shape, but he's able to "almost" touch his toes with no pain. He did the Certo for 30-60 days, and now only does it a few times a year when his back starts to hurt. It's been over 10 years and his back is still pain free.
He also had nightly cramps in his calves and restless leg. Old home remedy - bar of Ivory soap at bottom of bed under the sheet (in the wrapper). After a week, no more cramps or restless leg. Again, it's been over 10 years and he still keeps a bar of Ivory under the sheet at the bottom of his bed.
I know. It sounds stupid and ridiculous. But, it is a cheap, holistic possible fix. It beats $$$ for surgery and $$$'s for therapy and chiropractor. What have you got to lose. Give it a shot.

Not totally unselfish reply here...

I think the op should be provided with names of any “competent chiropractor” that you may have knowledge of. Then she could make her own decision.

And I could possibly benefit from the information also. ( I know to stay away from Davis.)

My wife used Dr. Kuhns (Wildwood office), but i think he has 1 or 2 other offices in the area.

When you see Davis Clinic, RUN, don't walk in the opposite direction. They are an unethical "treatment facility" that wants your money upfront, and a few weeks later the money is gone, but the pain isn't.
