Pflugerville 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 avoid them, but those who do not can depend on on their Pflugerville chiropractor at Pflugerville Wellness Center to intervene when asked and help with chiropractic spinal manipulation, nutrition, and understanding.

KOA and LSS

They are such small abbreviations for such painful conditions. Knee osteoarthritis (KOA) affects 27 million people. (5) Degenerative changes in the spine are seen 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 results from each. When both in one person, these two conditions may alter clinical outcomes for each. Lumbar spinal stenosis patients who undergo back surgery for their condition and also suffer with knee osteoarthritis realize their recoveries a bit less beneficial in terms of 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. Writers of this paper suggested tempering surgical outcome predictions in patients who have KOA. (1) Pflugerville Wellness Center brings Pflugerville 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 hard to ignore Pflugerville 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 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 described feeling worse with higher measures of pain sensitization, less function and poorer physical performance. (3) Pflugerville Wellness Center can improve things though.

CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Pflugerville Wellness Center uses well-researched chiropractic care for knee osteoarthritis and Pflugerville back pain relief. Chiropractic researchers recently recounted that a blend of education, exercise and manual therapy over 6 weeks increased function for two-thirds of patients with knee osteoarthritis. (4) Pflugerville Wellness Center also incorporates the research-documented, gentle spinal manipulation, Cox® Technic, to drop intradiscal pressures, widen the area of canal and raise the height of the disc.
