San Jose 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 avoid them, but those who are not so lucky can rely on their San Jose chiropractor at Chiropractic Solutions to intervene when asked and help with chiropractic spinal manipulation, nutritional advice, and understanding.

KOA and LSS

They are such little 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 people by the age of 50. Spinal stenosis is most evident in adults 60 and older. (6) Cartilage degeneration has a part in each. Pain results from each. When both in one person, these two conditions may affect clinical outcomes for each. Lumbar spinal stenosis patients who have back surgery for their condition and also suffer with knee osteoarthritis find their recoveries a bit less favorable related to social life and activities. Their KOA makes it hard to do routine work or ordinary activities due to knee pain or restricted knee range of motion. Writers of this paper proposed tempering surgical outcome predictions in patients who have KOA. (1) Chiropractic Solutions brings San Jose 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 hard to ignore San Jose back pain and knee pain. People who have 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 patients with KOA only, patients who have widespread pain and KOA reported feeling worse with higher levels of pain sensitization, less function and poorer physical performance. (3) Chiropractic Solutions can improve things though.

CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Chiropractic Solutions uses well-researched chiropractic care for knee osteoarthritis and San Jose back pain relief. Chiropractic researchers just recounted that a combination of education, exercise and manual therapy over 6 weeks increased function for two-thirds of patients who have knee osteoarthritis. (4) Chiropractic Solutions also uses the research-documented, gentle spinal manipulation, Cox® Technic, to reduce intradiscal pressures, widen the area of canal and raise the height of the disc.
