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 most often occurs in adults over 60 years old. (6) Degeneration of
cartilage 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 brings Severna Park chiropractic services to
the care mix to get back
pain and knee pain patients feeling better.
THE IMPORTANCE OF DEALING WITH KNEE AND
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.
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.
