Severna Park Knee Osteoarthritis and Back Pain and Falls

Lumbar spinal stenosis and knee osteoarthritis. The connection? They’re both age-related degenerative diseases. (1) Some of us may avoid them, but those who are not so lucky can rely on their Severna Park chiropractor at Back And Neck Care Center to step in and help with chiropractic spinal manipulation, nutritional advice, and understanding.

KOA and LSS

They are such small abbreviations for such painful conditions. Knee osteoarthritis (KOA) concerns 27 million people. (5) Degenerative changes in the spine are evident in upwards of 95% of people by the age of 50. Spinal stenosis is most evident in adults over 60 years old. (6) Cartilage degeneration has a role in each. Pain results from each. When combined in one person, these two conditions may alter clinical outcomes for each. Lumbar spinal stenosis patients who undergo back surgery for their condition and also suffer with knee osteoarthritis realize their recoveries a little less favorable related to social life and activities. Their KOA complicates their ability to do routine work or ordinary activities due to knee pain or restricted knee range of motion. Authors of this paper proposed tempering surgical outcome predictions in patients who have KOA. (1) Back And Neck Care Center uses Severna Park chiropractic services to help back pain and knee pain sufferers feel better.

THE IMPORTANCE OF DEALING WITH KNEE AND OTHER PAIN

It is pretty difficult to disregard Severna Park back pain and knee pain. People who have any type of low back pain and KOA had 2.7 times higher risk of recurrent falls. People who have moderate to severe low back pain and KOA were 3.7 times more at risk for falls. (2) Patients who have KOA and widespread pain vs patients with KOA and low back pain vs patients with KOA and multijoint pain vs patients with KOA only, patients with widespread pain and KOA reported feeling worse with higher measures of pain sensitization, less function and poorer physical performance. (3) Back And Neck Care Center can help though.

CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Back And Neck Care Center uses well-researched chiropractic care for knee osteoarthritis and Severna Park back pain relief. Chiropractic researchers just reported that a blend of education, exercise and manual therapy over 6 weeks increased function for two-thirds of patients with knee osteoarthritis. (4) Back And Neck Care Center also incorporates the research-documented, gentle spinal manipulation, Cox® Technic, to reduce intradiscal pressures, widen the area of canal and raise the height of the disc.
