Toronto 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 avoid them, but those who don’t can depend on on their Toronto chiropractor at Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre 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) 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 is most evident in adults 60 and older. (6) Degeneration of cartilage has 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 have knee osteoarthritis find their recoveries a little less beneficial related to 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. Writers of this paper proposed tempering surgical outcome predictions in patients who are inflicted with KOA. (1) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre uses Toronto chiropractic services to get back pain and knee pain patients feeling better.

THE IMPORTANCE OF ADDRESSING KNEE AND OTHER PAIN

It’s pretty hard to ignore Toronto back pain and knee pain. People with 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 who have widespread pain and KOA reported feeling worse with higher measures of pain sensitization, less function and poorer physical performance. (3) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre can improve things though.

CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre uses well-researched chiropractic care for knee osteoarthritis and Toronto back pain relief. Chiropractic researchers just reported that a mix of education, exercise and manual therapy over 6 weeks increased function for two of three patients who have knee osteoarthritis. (4) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre also uses the research-documented, gentle spinal manipulation, Cox® Technic, to drop intradiscal pressures, widen the area of canal and raise the height of the disc.
