McHenry 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 escape them, but those who don’t can depend on on their McHenry chiropractor at Spengel Chiropractic to step in 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) 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 most often occurs in adults 60 and older. (6) Cartilage degeneration plays a role in each. Pain results from each. When both in one person, these two conditions may alter clinical outcomes for each. Lumbar spinal stenosis patients who choose back surgery for their condition and also have knee osteoarthritis realize their recoveries a little less beneficial in terms of 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 proposed tempering surgical outcome predictions in patients who have KOA. (1) Spengel Chiropractic uses McHenry chiropractic services to help back pain and knee pain sufferers feel better.

THE IMPORTANCE OF DEALING WITH KNEE AND OTHER PAIN

It is pretty hard to ignore McHenry 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 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 reported feeling worse with higher levels of pain sensitization, less function and poorer physical performance. (3) Spengel Chiropractic can improve things though.

CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Spengel Chiropractic uses well-researched chiropractic care for knee osteoarthritis and McHenry back pain relief. Chiropractic researchers recently reported that a combination of education, exercise and manual therapy over 6 weeks increased function for two-thirds of patients with knee osteoarthritis. (4) Spengel Chiropractic 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.
