Manchester Knee Osteoarthritis and Back Pain and Falls

Lumbar spinal stenosis and knee osteoarthritis. The connection? They are both age-related degenerative diseases. (1) Some of us may escape them, but those who don’t can depend on on their Manchester chiropractor at Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries to intervene when asked and help with chiropractic spinal manipulation, nutrition, and understanding.

KOA and LSS

They are such small abbreviations for such uncomfortable conditions. Knee osteoarthritis (KOA) affects 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 60 and older. (6) Cartilage degeneration has a part in each. Pain results from each. When combined 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 have knee osteoarthritis find their recoveries a bit less beneficial 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. Writers of this paper suggested tempering surgical outcome predictions in patients who are inflicted with KOA.

THE IMPORTANCE OF DEALING WITH KNEE AND OTHER PAIN

It’s pretty hard to disregard Manchester 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 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 with widespread pain and KOA described feeling worse with higher measures of pain sensitization, less function and poorer physical performance. (3) Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries can improve things though.
