Tarrytown 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 escape them, but those who don’t can depend on on their Tarrytown chiropractor at Tarrytown 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 evident in upwards of 95% of people by the age of 50. Spinal stenosis is most evident in adults 60 and older. (6) Cartilage degeneration plays a role 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 have back surgery for their condition and also suffer with 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 have KOA. (1) Tarrytown Chiropractic brings Tarrytown 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 Tarrytown 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 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 who have widespread pain and KOA described feeling worse with higher measures of pain sensitization, less function and poorer physical performance. (3) Tarrytown Chiropractic can improve things though.

CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Tarrytown Chiropractic uses well-researched chiropractic care for knee osteoarthritis and Tarrytown back pain relief. Chiropractic researchers recently reported that a combination of education, exercise and manual therapy over 6 weeks improved function for two of three patients with knee osteoarthritis. (4) Tarrytown 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.
