New Roads Knee Osteoarthritis and Back Pain and Falls

Lumbar spinal stenosis and knee osteoarthritis. The link? They’re both age-related degenerative diseases. (1) Some of us may avoid them, but those who are not so lucky can rely on their New Roads chiropractor at New Roads Chiropractic Center to step in and help with chiropractic spinal manipulation, nutrition, and understanding.

KOA and LSS

They are such little abbreviations for such uncomfortable conditions. Knee osteoarthritis (KOA) affects 27 million people. (5) Degenerative changes in the spine are seen in upwards of 95% of people by the age of 50. Spinal stenosis is most evident in adults over 60 years old. (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 find their recoveries a bit less beneficial 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 suggested tempering surgical outcome predictions in patients who have KOA. (1) New Roads Chiropractic Center uses New Roads chiropractic services to help back pain and knee pain sufferers feel better.

THE IMPORTANCE OF ADDRESSING KNEE AND OTHER PAIN

It is pretty difficult to ignore New Roads back pain and knee pain. People who have 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 those with KOA only, patients who have widespread pain and KOA described feeling worse with higher measures of pain sensitization, less function and poorer physical performance. (3) New Roads Chiropractic Center can improve things though.

CHIROPRACTIC CARE

New Roads Chiropractic Center uses well-researched chiropractic care for knee osteoarthritis and New Roads back pain relief. Chiropractic researchers just recounted that a mix of education, exercise and manual therapy over 6 weeks improved function for two-thirds of patients with knee osteoarthritis. (4) New Roads Chiropractic Center also uses the research-documented, gentle spinal manipulation, Cox® Technic, to reduce intradiscal pressures, widen the area of canal and raise the height of the disc.
