Paramus 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 Paramus chiropractor at Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center to step in and help with chiropractic spinal manipulation, nutrition, 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 evident in upwards of 95% of those over 50. Spinal stenosis most often occurs in adults 60 and older. (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 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 hard 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) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center brings Paramus 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’s pretty hard to disregard Paramus back pain and knee pain. People suffering 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 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 reported feeling worse with higher levels of pain sensitization, less function and poorer physical performance. (3) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center can improve things though.

CHIROPRACTIC CARE

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