Williamson 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 do not can depend on on their Williamson chiropractor at Apple Country Chiropractic 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 up to 95% of people by the age of 50. Spinal stenosis most often occurs in adults 60 and older. (6) Degeneration of cartilage has 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 have back surgery for their condition and also have knee osteoarthritis find 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 are inflicted with KOA. (1) Apple Country Chiropractic brings Williamson 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 hard to ignore Williamson back pain and knee pain. People suffering 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 described feeling worse with higher measures of pain sensitization, less function and poorer physical performance. (3) Apple Country Chiropractic can help though.

(4) Apple Country Chiropractic 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.
