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 are not so lucky can depend on on their West Palm Beach chiropractor at Moses Chiropractic to intervene when asked and help with chiropractic spinal manipulation, nutrition, and understanding.

KOA and LSS

They are such small 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 people by the age of 50. Spinal stenosis most often occurs in adults over 60 years old. (6) Degeneration of cartilage has a part in each. Pain stems from each. When both in one person, these two conditions may affect clinical outcomes for each. Lumbar spinal stenosis patients who choose back surgery for their condition and also suffer with knee osteoarthritis realize their recoveries a bit less beneficial 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. Writers of this paper proposed tempering surgical outcome predictions in patients who have KOA. (1) Moses Chiropractic uses West Palm Beach chiropractic services to get back pain and knee pain patients feeling better.

THE IMPORTANCE OF ADDRESSING KNEE AND OTHER PAIN

It is pretty hard to disregard West Palm Beach back pain and knee pain. People who have 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 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 described feeling worse with higher measures of pain sensitization, less function and poorer physical performance. (3) Moses Chiropractic can improve things though.

CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Moses Chiropractic utilizes well-researched chiropractic care for knee osteoarthritis and West Palm Beach back pain relief. Chiropractic researchers recently reported that a mix of education, exercise and manual therapy over 6 weeks increased function for two of three patients with knee osteoarthritis. (4) Moses Chiropractic also uses the research-documented, gentle spinal manipulation, Cox® Technic, to drop intradiscal pressures, widen the area of canal and raise the height of the disc.
