Manahawkin Knee Osteoarthritis and Back Pain and Falls

Lumbar spinal stenosis and knee osteoarthritis. The link? They are both age-related degenerative diseases. (1) Some of us may avoid them, but those who do not can rely on their Manahawkin chiropractor at Manahawkin Chiropractic Center to step in and help with chiropractic spinal manipulation, nutritional advice, 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 upwards of 95% of those over 50. Spinal stenosis is most evident in adults 60 and older. (6) Cartilage degeneration plays a role in each. Pain stems from each. When combined 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 realize their recoveries a bit less favorable related to 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. Authors of this paper suggested tempering surgical outcome predictions in patients who are inflicted with KOA. (1) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center brings Manahawkin chiropractic services to the care mix to get back pain and knee pain patients feeling better.

THE IMPORTANCE OF DEALING WITH KNEE AND OTHER PAIN

It’s pretty difficult to disregard Manahawkin 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 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 patients 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) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center can improve things though.

CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Manahawkin Chiropractic Center utilizes well-researched chiropractic care for knee osteoarthritis and Manahawkin back pain relief. Chiropractic researchers just reported that a combination of education, exercise and manual therapy over 6 weeks increased function for two of three patients who have knee osteoarthritis. (4) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center 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.
