Lumbar spinal stenosis and knee osteoarthritis. The connection?
They’re both age-related degenerative diseases. (1) Some of us may
avoid them, but those who are not so lucky can depend
on on their Plainville chiropractor at Layden Chiropractic to step in and help with chiropractic spinal manipulation, nutrition, 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 evident
in upwards of 95% of those over 50.
Spinal stenosis is most evident in adults 60 and
older. (6) Cartilage degeneration plays a part 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 undergo
back surgery for their condition and also suffer with knee
osteoarthritis realize their recoveries a bit less favorable
related to 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. Writers of this paper proposed
tempering surgical outcome predictions in patients who have
KOA. (1) Layden Chiropractic brings Plainville chiropractic services to
the care mix to get back
pain and knee pain patients feeling better.
THE IMPORTANCE OF DEALING WITH KNEE AND
It is pretty difficult to
disregard Plainville 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 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)
Layden Chiropractic can improve things though.
Layden Chiropractic utilizes well-researched
chiropractic care for knee osteoarthritis and Plainville back pain
relief. Chiropractic researchers recently
recounted that a blend of education,
exercise and manual therapy over 6 weeks increased function for two of three patients with knee osteoarthritis. (4)
Layden Chiropractic 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.
