Burlington and Hamilton Knee Osteoarthritis and Back Pain and Falls

Lumbar spinal stenosis and knee osteoarthritis. The link? They are both age-related degenerative diseases. (1) Some of us may escape them, but those who don’t can rely on their Burlington and Hamilton chiropractor at Spinal Care Clinic to intervene when asked and help with chiropractic spinal manipulation, nutritional advice, and understanding.

KOA and LSS

They are such small abbreviations for such painful conditions. Knee osteoarthritis (KOA) concerns 27 million people. (5) Degenerative changes in the spine are seen in upwards of 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 stems from each. When both in one person, these two conditions may alter clinical outcomes for each. Lumbar spinal stenosis patients who have back surgery for their condition and also have knee osteoarthritis find their recoveries a bit less favorable related to social life and activities. Their KOA makes it difficult 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 are inflicted with KOA. (1) Spinal Care Clinic brings Burlington and Hamilton 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 is pretty difficult to ignore Burlington and Hamilton back pain and knee pain. People suffering 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 described feeling worse with higher measures of pain sensitization, less function and poorer physical performance. (3) Spinal Care Clinic can help though.

(4) Spinal Care Clinic 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.
