Carrolltown 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 do not can depend on on their Carrolltown chiropractor at Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation to intervene when asked and help with chiropractic spinal manipulation, nutritional advice, and understanding.

KOA and LSS

They are such small abbreviations for such painful 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 60 and older. (6) Cartilage degeneration plays a part in each. Pain stems from each. When both 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 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. Authors of this paper suggested tempering surgical outcome predictions in patients who have KOA. (1) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation brings Carrolltown chiropractic services to the care mix to get back pain and knee pain patients feeling better.

THE IMPORTANCE OF ADDRESSING KNEE AND OTHER PAIN

It is pretty hard to ignore Carrolltown back pain and knee pain. People with any type of low back pain and KOA had 2.7 times higher risk of recurrent 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 patients 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) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation can help though.
