Fernandina Beach 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 don’t can depend on on their Fernandina Beach chiropractor at Amelia Chiropractic Clinic to intervene when asked and help with chiropractic spinal manipulation, nutrition, and understanding.

KOA and LSS

They are such little abbreviations for such painful conditions. Knee osteoarthritis (KOA) concerns 27 million people. (5) Degenerative changes in the spine are evident in upwards of 95% of those over 50. Spinal stenosis is most evident in adults over 60 years old. (6) Degeneration of cartilage plays a part 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 undergo back surgery for their condition and also have knee osteoarthritis find their recoveries a little less favorable in terms of 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. Authors of this paper suggested tempering surgical outcome predictions in patients who have KOA. (1) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic brings Fernandina Beach 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 Fernandina Beach 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 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) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic can help though.

(4) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic 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.
