Baton Rouge Knee Osteoarthritis and Back Pain and Falls

Lumbar spinal stenosis and knee osteoarthritis. The link? They are both age-related degenerative diseases. (1) Some of us may avoid them, but those who do not can depend on on their Baton Rouge chiropractor at Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation to intervene when asked and help with chiropractic spinal manipulation, nutrition, and understanding.

KOA and LSS

They are such small 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 over 60 years old. (6) Degeneration of cartilage plays a part in each. Pain results from each. When combined 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 suffer with knee osteoarthritis find their recoveries a little less beneficial 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 proposed tempering surgical outcome predictions in patients who are inflicted with KOA.

THE IMPORTANCE OF DEALING WITH KNEE AND OTHER PAIN

It is pretty hard to ignore Baton Rouge back pain and knee pain. People with 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 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 who have widespread pain and KOA described feeling worse with higher levels of pain sensitization, less function and poorer physical performance. (3) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation can help though.
