Osteoarthritis both knee joints and lumbar spine.

Physiotherapy evaluation, assessment of ROM(active,passive)of all the limbs along with spine flexion,extension .Flexion,rotation exercises only after assessment and core muscle strengthening. Spinal alignment gradually with manual therapy or Chiropractic adjustor. The tight paraspinal muscles on one side also need to be relaxed along with strengthening of other side muscles. But the SI joint,knee n foot,upper limb alignment important to assess

Degenerative changes in spine with osteophytes.L2,L3,L4 not aligned( increased lateral curvature) probably due to structural changes in the spine,L5-S1 lysthesis, Sacroiliac joints and the levels of ilium not clear .

B/l O.A. knee with degenerative changes and osteophytes,medial compartment more involved,

Tricompartmental OA knee bilateral Will benefit from bilateral TKR Listhesis grade 1 L5/S1 Lumbosacral corset Calcium vitD Gabapentin will help
