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 complicates
their ability 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
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.
Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. uses well-researched
chiropractic care for knee osteoarthritis and Auburn back pain
relief. Chiropractic researchers recently
reported that a blend of education,
exercise and manual therapy over 6 weeks increased function for two of three patients with knee osteoarthritis. (4)
Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. also uses the research-documented, gentle
spinal manipulation, Cox® Technic, to reduce intradiscal pressures,
widen the area of canal and raise the height of the disc.
