DEGENERATED DISCS AND KNEE PAIN REDUCE QUALITY OF LIFE;
CHIROPRACTIC IMPROVES IT
Degenerated discs and degenerated knees aren’t
such unlikely companions. They are cases
of musculoskeletal diseases and spinal disorders that are linked to poorer quality of life
for older folks. Issues like low back pain, lumbar
spinal stenosis, knee pain due to osteoarthritis, lessened
lumbar lordosis (visible on xray), and enlarged
sagittal vertical alignment (as seen on xray) influence
a person’s quality of life. Lumbar spinal stenosis and knee osteoarthritis are
the most influential issues for patients having a poorer
quality of life. (1) Another report links the disc height of the L1/L2,
L2/L3, and L3/L4 to knee pain with L2/L3 being the most strongly correlated.
(2) The old “Dem Bones” song holds true! Everything is related!
A degenerated knee may be connected to a degenerated disc. Spinal Care Clinic is well aware of
the connection and is here to help.
