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
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.
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.
