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. (1) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic uses Fort Wayne chiropractic services to help back pain and knee pain
sufferers feel better.
THE IMPORTANCE OF ADDRESSING KNEE AND
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.
Aaron Chiropractic Clinic utilizes well-researched
chiropractic care for knee osteoarthritis and Fort Wayne back pain
relief. Chiropractic researchers recently
recounted that a blend of education,
exercise and manual therapy over 6 weeks improved function for two-thirds
of patients who have knee osteoarthritis. (4)
Aaron Chiropractic Clinic also incorporates the research-documented, gentle
spinal manipulation, Cox® Technic, to drop intradiscal pressures,
widen the area of canal and raise the height of the disc.
