DEGENERATED DISCS AND KNEE PAIN REDUCE QUALITY OF LIFE;
CHIROPRACTIC IMPROVES IT
Degenerated discs and degenerated knees aren’t
such strange-bedfellows. They are examples
of musculoskeletal diseases and spinal malalignment that are linked to a lesser quality of life
for older folks. Issues like low back pain, lumbar
spinal stenosis, knee pain because of osteoarthritis, lessened
lumbar lordosis (as seen on xray), and increased
sagittal vertical alignment (visible on xray) influence
a person’s quality of life. Lumbar spinal stenosis and knee osteoarthritis are
the most significant issues for patients having a lesser
quality of life. (1) Another report links the disc height of the L1/L2,
L2/L3, and L3/L4 to knee pain with L2/L3 being the most strongly related.
(2) The old “Dem Bones” song holds true! Everything is connected!
A degenerated knee may be related to a degenerated disc. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center understands
the connection and is here to help.

symptoms and disability issues. (3) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center relieves pain from
