I have cervical spondylosis and severe spinal stenosis. Is there any role for a chiropractor?

Be Careful. Most responsible chiropractors will be cautious with patients with severe cervical stenosis. You are at risk for injury. This is one situation where chiropractic manipulation may be contraindicated.
There can be. As long as you have no neurologic findings or symptoms of significance, gentle traction, massage and modalities may give some symptom relief but there should be no place for spinal manipulation.

See spine MD. I recommend that you see a spine md prior to seeing a chiropractor. Presumably the stenosis was seen on an MRI you had of your cervical spine. Certain manipulations, particularly if forceful can place added pressure on your spinal cord and nerves and therefore can cause other issues such as weakness or worse. An orthopedic spine md or neurosurgeon that treats spine issues will be helpful. Read more...

Goodby. The best strategy is to seek out an orthopedic surgeon or sports medicine specialist. Chiropractors offer short term massage relief only and have no cures with their therapy. Absolutely do not let a chiropractor touch your neck and be advised that the x-rays that they always take (to make money) use unmonitored, high intensity machines with some risk to you. Read more...
