Nashua Back Pain and Spinal Stenosis and Osteoarthritis (Hip or Knee)

April 24, 2024

Osteoarthritis, knee or hip, may accompany low back pain for some folks. Lumbar spinal stenosis is a particular spinal condition that is expanding its influence as our population ages. Its symptoms often show up with other osteoarthritic conditions and stenosis symptoms. Moriarty Chiropractic shares pain relieving Nashua chiropractic care for spine pain relief for spinal stenosis and other spine pain conditions.

THE COMBINATION: Back Pain and Osteoarthritis

New research reported that 15% of knee and 23% of knee osteoarthritic patients also had lumbar spinal stenosis symptoms. They both experienced improvements in knee or hip related pain, function and quality of life when they underwent a patient education and exercise program. So what works for these patients? Research study after research study reports that exercise therapy likely enhances patient outcomes for patients with knee or hip osteoarthritis while no one kind is said to be better than the others. (1,2,3,4) Moriarty Chiropractic includes spinal manipulation to boost the Nashua chiropractic care and clinical outcomes.


Not surprising to any of our current Nashua chiropractic patients, hands-on spinal manipulation is pivotal to our treatment plan. A study of conservative treatment of low back pain as a result of lumbar spinal stenosis reported that incorporating flexion distraction spinal manipulation produced a more significant reduction in pain and disability scores. (5) Another study using a Cox® flexion distraction impacted treatment of knee pain and osteoarthritis documented a mean decrease in VAS (visual analog scale 0-10)-patient reported pain scores from 7.7 to 1.8 in 5.3 treatments in 3 weeks. This study documented clinical improvement for patients with knee pain. (6) Pain relief is our goal here at Moriarty Chiropractic and is surely yours as well!
