Ashburn 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 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 OTHER PAIN

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.
