Lumbar spinal stenosis and knee osteoarthritis. The connection?
They are both age-related degenerative diseases. (1) Some of us may
escape them, but those who don’t can depend
on on their Fort Wayne chiropractor at Fort Wayne Chiropractic Radiological Center to step in and help with chiropractic spinal manipulation, nutritional
advice, and understanding.
KOA and LSS
They are such little abbreviations for such
painful conditions. Knee osteoarthritis (KOA) affects
27 million people. (5) Degenerative changes in the spine are seen
in up to 95% of people by the age of 50.
Spinal stenosis is most evident in adults over 60 years old. (6) Degeneration of
cartilage has a part in each. Pain results from each. When both
in one person, these two conditions may alter clinical
outcomes for each. Lumbar spinal stenosis patients who choose
back surgery for their condition and also have knee
osteoarthritis realize their recoveries a little less favorable
related to social life and activities. Their KOA makes it difficult to do routine work or ordinary activities due to knee pain or
restricted knee range of motion. Writers of this paper proposed
tempering surgical outcome predictions in patients who are inflicted with
KOA. (1) Fort Wayne Chiropractic Radiological Center brings Fort Wayne chiropractic services to
the care mix to get back
pain and knee pain patients feeling better.
THE IMPORTANCE OF DEALING WITH KNEE AND
It’s pretty hard to
ignore Fort Wayne back pain and knee pain. People with any type of low back pain and KOA had 2.7 times higher risk of frequent
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 those with KOA only, patients who have
widespread pain and KOA reported feeling worse with higher levels
of pain sensitization, less function and poorer physical performance. (3)
Fort Wayne Chiropractic Radiological Center can improve things though.
Fort Wayne Chiropractic Radiological Center utilizes well-researched
chiropractic care for knee osteoarthritis and Fort Wayne back pain
relief. Chiropractic researchers recently
reported that a mix of education,
exercise and manual therapy over 6 weeks improved function for two-thirds
of patients who have knee osteoarthritis. (4)
Fort Wayne Chiropractic Radiological Center also uses the research-documented, gentle
spinal manipulation, Cox® Technic, to reduce intradiscal pressures,
widen the area of canal and raise the height of the disc.
