Auburn Knee Osteoarthritis and Back Pain and Falls

Lumbar spinal stenosis and knee osteoarthritis. The connection? They’re both age-related degenerative diseases. (1) Some of us may escape them, but those who are not so lucky can depend on on their Auburn chiropractor at Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. to intervene when asked and help with chiropractic spinal manipulation, nutrition, and understanding.

KOA and LSS

They are such little abbreviations for such uncomfortable conditions. Knee osteoarthritis (KOA) affects 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) Degeneration of cartilage plays a role 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 have knee osteoarthritis find their recoveries a little less favorable in terms of 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 proposed tempering surgical outcome predictions in patients who are inflicted with KOA. (1) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. uses Auburn chiropractic services to help back pain and knee pain sufferers feel better.

THE IMPORTANCE OF DEALING WITH KNEE AND OTHER PAIN

It’s pretty hard to disregard Auburn 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 with widespread pain and KOA reported feeling worse with higher levels of pain sensitization, less function and poorer physical performance. (3) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. can improve things though.
