St. Francisville 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 escape them, but those who are not so lucky can depend on on their St. Francisville chiropractor at Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville to step in 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) affects 27 million people. (5) Degenerative changes in the spine are seen in up to 95% of people by the age of 50. Spinal stenosis most often occurs in adults 60 and older. (6) Degeneration of cartilage plays a role in each. Pain stems from each. When combined in one person, these two conditions may affect clinical outcomes for each. Lumbar spinal stenosis patients who undergo back surgery for their condition and also have 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. Writers of this paper proposed tempering surgical outcome predictions in patients who are inflicted with KOA.

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 patients with KOA only, patients with widespread pain and KOA described feeling worse with higher levels of pain sensitization, less function and poorer physical performance.
