Oxford Knee Osteoarthritis and Back Pain and Falls

Lumbar spinal stenosis and knee osteoarthritis. The connection? 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 Oxford chiropractor at Satterwhite Chiropractic to step in and help with chiropractic spinal manipulation, nutritional advice, and understanding.

KOA and LSS

They are such little abbreviations for such painful conditions. Knee osteoarthritis (KOA) affects 27 million people. (5) Degenerative changes in the spine are evident in up to 95% of those over 50. Spinal stenosis is most evident in adults 60 and older. (6) Cartilage degeneration plays a part 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 have back surgery for their condition and also suffer with knee osteoarthritis find their recoveries a little less favorable in terms of social life and activities. Their KOA makes it hard 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 have KOA.

THE IMPORTANCE OF ADDRESSING KNEE AND OTHER PAIN

It is pretty hard to ignore Oxford back pain and knee pain. People who have any type of low back pain and KOA had 2.7 times higher risk of frequent 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 with widespread pain and KOA described feeling worse with higher measures of pain sensitization, less function and poorer physical performance. (3) Satterwhite Chiropractic can help though.

CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Satterwhite Chiropractic uses well-researched chiropractic care for knee osteoarthritis and Oxford back pain relief. Chiropractic researchers recently recounted that a combination of education, exercise and manual therapy over 6 weeks improved function for two of three patients who have knee osteoarthritis. (4) Satterwhite Chiropractic also incorporates the research-documented, gentle spinal manipulation, Cox® Technic, to reduce intradiscal pressures, widen the area of canal and increase the height of the disc.
