Baton Rouge 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 escape them, but those who don’t can rely on their Baton Rouge chiropractor at Spine & Sports Rehab Center to step in and help with chiropractic spinal manipulation, nutritional advice, and understanding.

KOA and LSS

They are such small abbreviations for such uncomfortable conditions. Knee osteoarthritis (KOA) concerns 27 million people. (5) Degenerative changes in the spine are seen in upwards of 95% of people by the age of 50. Spinal stenosis most often occurs in adults over 60 years old. (6) Cartilage degeneration plays a role in each. Pain stems from each. When combined in one person, these two conditions may affect clinical outcomes for each. Lumbar spinal stenosis patients who choose back surgery for their condition and also suffer with knee osteoarthritis realize their recoveries a bit less beneficial 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 have KOA. (1) Spine & Sports Rehab Center uses Baton Rouge chiropractic services to help back pain and knee pain sufferers feel better.

THE IMPORTANCE OF DEALING WITH KNEE AND OTHER PAIN

It’s pretty hard to ignore Baton Rouge 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 with KOA and widespread pain vs patients with KOA and low back pain vs patients with KOA and multijoint pain vs patients with KOA only, patients with widespread pain and KOA described feeling worse with higher measures of pain sensitization, less function and poorer physical performance. (3) Spine & Sports Rehab Center can help though.
