DEGENERATED DISCS AND KNEE PAIN REDUCE QUALITY OF LIFE;
CHIROPRACTIC IMPROVES IT
Degenerated discs and degenerated knees aren’t
such strange-bedfellows. They are cases
of musculoskeletal diseases and spinal malalignment that are correlated with a lesser quality of life
for older folks. Issues like low back pain, lumbar
spinal stenosis, knee pain because of osteoarthritis, decreased
lumbar lordosis (as seen on xray), and enlarged
sagittal vertical alignment (as seen on xray) affect
a person’s quality of life. Lumbar spinal stenosis and knee osteoarthritis are
the most significant issues for patients having a lesser
quality of life. (1) Another study links the disc height of the L1/L2,
L2/L3, and L3/L4 to knee pain with L2/L3 being the most strongly correlated.
(2) The old “Dem Bones” song holds true! Everything is related!
A degenerated knee may be related to a degenerated disc. Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC is well aware of
the connection and is here to help.
