Murfreesboro 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 do not can rely on their Murfreesboro chiropractor at Most Chiropractic Clinic to intervene when asked and help with chiropractic spinal manipulation, nutritional advice, 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 upwards of 95% of those over 50. Spinal stenosis is most evident in adults 60 and older. (6) Degeneration of cartilage 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 undergo 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 complicates their ability to do routine work or ordinary activities due to knee pain or restricted knee range of motion. Authors of this paper suggested tempering surgical outcome predictions in patients who are inflicted with KOA. (1) Most Chiropractic Clinic uses Murfreesboro chiropractic services to help back pain and knee pain sufferers feel better.

THE IMPORTANCE OF ADDRESSING KNEE AND OTHER PAIN

It’s pretty hard to ignore Murfreesboro back pain and knee pain. People suffering any type of low back pain and KOA had 2.7 times higher risk of recurrent falls. People with moderate to severe low back pain and KOA were 3.7 times more at risk for falls. (2) Patients with 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 described feeling worse with higher levels of pain sensitization, less function and poorer physical performance. (3) Most Chiropractic Clinic can improve things though.

Most Chiropractic Clinic utilizes well-researched chiropractic care for knee osteoarthritis and Murfreesboro back pain relief. Chiropractic researchers recently reported that a blend of education, exercise and manual therapy over 6 weeks improved function for two of three patients with knee osteoarthritis. (4) Most Chiropractic Clinic also incorporates the research-documented, gentle spinal manipulation, Cox® Technic, to drop intradiscal pressures, widen the area of canal and raise the height of the disc.
