Millville Knee Osteoarthritis and Back Pain and Falls

Lumbar spinal stenosis and knee osteoarthritis. The link? They’re both age-related degenerative diseases. (1) Some of us may avoid them, but those who don’t can depend on on their Millville chiropractor at Wilson Family Chiropractic 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 up to 95% of people by the age of 50. Spinal stenosis is most evident in adults over 60 years old. (6) Degeneration of cartilage plays a role in each. Pain results 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 have knee osteoarthritis realize their recoveries a bit 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. Authors of this paper suggested tempering surgical outcome predictions in patients who are inflicted with KOA. (1) Wilson Family Chiropractic brings Millville chiropractic services to the care mix to get back pain and knee pain patients feeling better.

THE IMPORTANCE OF ADDRESSING KNEE AND OTHER PAIN

It is pretty difficult to ignore Millville back pain and knee pain. People who have any type of low back pain and KOA had 2.7 times higher risk of frequent 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 patients with KOA only, patients with widespread pain and KOA reported feeling worse with higher measures of pain sensitization, less function and poorer physical performance. (3) Wilson Family Chiropractic can improve things though.

CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Wilson Family Chiropractic utilizes well-researched chiropractic care for knee osteoarthritis and Millville back pain relief. Chiropractic researchers just reported that a combination of education, exercise and manual therapy over 6 weeks improved function for two of three patients with knee osteoarthritis. (4) Wilson Family Chiropractic also uses the research-documented, gentle spinal manipulation, Cox® Technic, to reduce intradiscal pressures, widen the area of canal and increase the height of the disc.
