Plainville Knee Osteoarthritis and Back Pain and Falls

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 OTHER PAIN

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.

CHIROPRACTIC CARE

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.
