Groton 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 do not can depend on on their Groton chiropractor at Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office to step in and help with chiropractic spinal manipulation, nutrition, and understanding.

KOA and LSS

They are such little abbreviations for such painful conditions. Knee osteoarthritis (KOA) concerns 27 million people. (5) Degenerative changes in the spine are evident in up to 95% of those over 50. Spinal stenosis most often occurs in adults over 60 years old. (6) Cartilage degeneration has a part 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 suffer with knee osteoarthritis find their recoveries a little less beneficial in terms of social life and activities. Their KOA makes it hard 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) Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office brings Groton 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 disregard Groton back pain and knee pain. People with any type of low back pain and KOA had 2.7 times higher risk of frequent 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 reported feeling worse with higher measures of pain sensitization, less function and poorer physical performance. (3) Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office can improve things though.
