Sandy Springs 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 are not so lucky can rely on their Sandy Springs chiropractor at Cross Chiropractic Center to intervene when asked and help with chiropractic spinal manipulation, nutrition, and understanding.

KOA and LSS

They are such little abbreviations for such uncomfortable conditions. Knee osteoarthritis (KOA) concerns 27 million people. (5) Degenerative changes in the spine are evident in upwards of 95% of those over 50. Spinal stenosis most often occurs in adults over 60 years old. (6) Cartilage degeneration has a role in each. Pain stems from each. When combined 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 little less beneficial 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 have KOA. (1) Cross Chiropractic Center brings Sandy Springs 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 difficult to ignore Sandy Springs 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 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 who have widespread pain and KOA reported feeling worse with higher measures of pain sensitization, less function and poorer physical performance. (3) Cross Chiropractic Center can help though.

CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Cross Chiropractic Center uses well-researched chiropractic care for knee osteoarthritis and Sandy Springs back pain relief. Chiropractic researchers just recounted that a combination of education, exercise and manual therapy over 6 weeks improved function for two of three patients who have knee osteoarthritis. (4) Cross Chiropractic Center 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.
