Lumbar spinal stenosis and knee osteoarthritis. The connection?
They’re both age-related degenerative diseases. (1) Some of us may
escape them, but those who are not so lucky can depend
on on their Tonawanda chiropractor at Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation to intervene
when asked and help with chiropractic spinal manipulation, nutrition, and understanding.
KOA and LSS
They are such little abbreviations for such
uncomfortable conditions. Knee osteoarthritis (KOA) affects
27 million people. (5) Degenerative changes in the spine are evident
in upwards of 95% of those over 50.
Spinal stenosis most often occurs in adults over 60 years old. (6) Cartilage degeneration plays a role in each. Pain stems from each. When both
in one person, these two conditions may affect clinical
outcomes for each. Lumbar spinal stenosis patients who choose
back surgery for their condition and also suffer with knee
osteoarthritis find their recoveries a bit less beneficial
in terms of 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) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation uses Tonawanda chiropractic services to help back pain and knee pain
sufferers feel better.
THE IMPORTANCE OF DEALING WITH KNEE AND
It’s pretty hard to
ignore Tonawanda 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 with 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 who have
widespread pain and KOA described feeling worse with higher levels
of pain sensitization, less function and poorer physical performance. (3)
Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation can improve things though.
Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation utilizes well-researched
chiropractic care for knee osteoarthritis and Tonawanda back pain
relief. Chiropractic researchers recently
recounted that a combination of education,
exercise and manual therapy over 6 weeks improved function for two-thirds
of patients who have knee osteoarthritis. (4)
Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation also uses the research-documented, gentle
spinal manipulation, Cox® Technic, to drop intradiscal pressures,
widen the area of canal and increase the height of the disc.
