Back and knee pain
Pain, swelling and stiffness in the joints of the bones, can be symptoms of degenerative joint problems, which can partially or completely incapacitate people, and therefore require accurate diagnosis to initiate the best treatment for each person .
Among the problems is very common joint degeneration, ie those which increase with advancing age. The most common are: degenerative spinal stenosis in the spine and knee pain.
The spine is the means of supporting the body, inside is the spinal cord and nerves that conduct impulses to move or feel sensations. However, the space where these structures tend to become clogged with advancing age, so this condition is called "degenerative spinal stenosis," which primarily affects people over 55 years.
Degenerative spinal stenosis can also occur at younger ages due to factors of heredity, sports, labor, postural defects or trauma. This condition can be caused by the presence of deformities or herniated discs that cushion between each vertebra, for peak bone, called osteophytes, fibrosis or scarring related to injury or joint inflammation.
After back pain, the most frequent cause of consultation with the orthopedic knee pain is that if it is for numerous reasons, the general population is associated with meniscal injury. However, in most cases the feeling is due to degenerative processes.
