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 are not so lucky can rely on their Ashburn chiropractor at Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn to intervene
when asked and help with chiropractic spinal manipulation, nutritional
advice, and understanding.
KOA and LSS
They are such small 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 plays a role in each. Pain stems 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 realize 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 proposed
tempering surgical outcome predictions in patients who are inflicted with
KOA. (1) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn brings Ashburn chiropractic services to
the care mix to get back
pain and knee pain patients feeling better.
THE IMPORTANCE OF ADDRESSING KNEE AND
It’s pretty difficult to
disregard Ashburn 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 with
widespread pain and KOA reported feeling worse with higher measures
of pain sensitization, less function and poorer physical performance. (3)
Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn can improve things though.
Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn utilizes well-researched

spinal manipulation, Cox® Technic, to drop intradiscal pressures,
