Fort Wayne Knee Osteoarthritis and Back Pain and Falls

Lumbar spinal stenosis and knee osteoarthritis. The link? They are both age-related degenerative diseases. (1) Some of us may escape them, but those who do not can rely on their Fort Wayne chiropractor at Aaron Chiropractic Clinic to intervene when asked and help with chiropractic spinal manipulation, nutrition, and understanding.

KOA and LSS

They are such small abbreviations for such uncomfortable conditions. Knee osteoarthritis (KOA) affects 27 million people. (5) Degenerative changes in the spine are evident in up to 95% of those over 50. Spinal stenosis most often occurs in adults 60 and older. (6) Cartilage degeneration plays a role in each. Pain results from each. When both in one person, these two conditions may affect clinical outcomes for each. Lumbar spinal stenosis patients who have back surgery for their condition and also have knee osteoarthritis realize their recoveries a bit less favorable 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.

THE IMPORTANCE OF ADDRESSING KNEE AND OTHER PAIN

It’s pretty difficult to disregard Fort Wayne back pain and knee pain. People with 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 with 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 measures of pain sensitization, less function and poorer physical performance. (3) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic can help though.
