Preston 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 escape them, but those who do not can rely on their Preston chiropractor at Chiropractic Associates 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) 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 most often occurs in adults over 60 years old. (6) Degeneration of cartilage plays a role in each. Pain results from each. When combined in one person, these two conditions may alter clinical outcomes for each. Lumbar spinal stenosis patients who choose back surgery for their condition and also suffer with knee osteoarthritis find their recoveries a bit less beneficial in terms of social life and activities. Their KOA makes it hard to do routine work or ordinary activities due to knee pain or restricted knee range of motion. Authors of this paper proposed tempering surgical outcome predictions in patients who have KOA. (1) Chiropractic Associates uses Preston chiropractic services to help back pain and knee pain sufferers feel better.

THE IMPORTANCE OF ADDRESSING KNEE AND OTHER PAIN

It is pretty hard to disregard Preston 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 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 with widespread pain and KOA reported feeling worse with higher measures of pain sensitization, less function and poorer physical performance. (3) Chiropractic Associates can improve things though.

CHIROPRACTIC CARE

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