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
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.
Spine & Sports Rehab Center uses well-researched
chiropractic care for knee osteoarthritis and Baton Rouge back pain
relief. Chiropractic researchers just
reported that a combination of education,
exercise and manual therapy over 6 weeks increased function for two-thirds
of patients who have knee osteoarthritis. (4)
Spine & Sports Rehab Center 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.
