West Palm Beach Knee Osteoarthritis and Back Pain and Falls

Lumbar spinal stenosis and knee osteoarthritis. The connection? They are both age-related degenerative diseases. (1) Some of us may avoid them, but those who do not can rely on their West Palm Beach chiropractor at Chiropractic Care to step in and help with chiropractic spinal manipulation, nutritional advice, 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 up to 95% of people by the age of 50. Spinal stenosis most often occurs in adults 60 and older. (6) Cartilage degeneration has 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 choose back surgery for their condition and also suffer with knee osteoarthritis find their recoveries a little less favorable 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 proposed tempering surgical outcome predictions in patients who are inflicted with KOA. (1) Chiropractic Care brings West Palm Beach 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 difficult to ignore West Palm Beach 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 who have 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 reported feeling worse with higher levels of pain sensitization, less function and poorer physical performance. (3) Chiropractic Care can help though.

CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Chiropractic Care utilizes well-researched chiropractic care for knee osteoarthritis and West Palm Beach back pain relief. Chiropractic researchers recently reported that a combination of education, exercise and manual therapy over 6 weeks increased function for two-thirds of patients who have knee osteoarthritis. (4) Chiropractic Care also incorporates the research-documented, gentle spinal manipulation, Cox® Technic, to reduce intradiscal pressures, widen the area of canal and increase the height of the disc.
