Knees and knee pain. Boy, do we work our knees…or at least
we should! Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation hears about painful knees almost
as much as we hear about painful backs and necks! Tonawanda
knee pain sufferers know the symptoms and feel the same: “I don’t want knee pain!” Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation
has some enlightening new research on exercise, chiropractic care,
and nutrition to keep knee pain under control.
EXERCISE PROTECTS THE KNEES
If you have Tonawanda knee pain, it may seem that moving the painful knee will only aggravate
it more. Many doctors like yours at Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation and researchers hear that! That is fear. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation gets it!
Physical activity is good for your knee’s overall health though. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation
will be right beside you to calm your fear and make
sure movement is beneficial! Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation also
reminds you that a sedentary lifestyle may cause more
issues and lead to more joint health troubles.
A study that tracked people for 8 years revealed
that persistent sitting was not related to
knee osteoarthritis while low to moderate level of strenuous
physical activity is protective against knee osteoarthritis. If you sit a lot, exercise, too. It helps. The authors specifically report
that long-term strenuous activity participation didn’t raise
the incidence of knee osteoarthritis. That is good news! They write
cautiously that people who were older, have a greater BMI,
more severe pain, weaker quadriceps and depression were less
likely to do any strenuous activities. (1) If that is you, let’s get past these issues for your knees’ sake! Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation
is a great Tonawanda health partner!
QUADRICEPS HELPS THE KNEES
And talk about good partners, quads are to knees! Strong quadriceps benefit
knees. Exercising the quadriceps is smart! A study examined
younger and older folks performing resistance exercises via machine
vs. elastic band. Both work! Maximal voluntary contraction of the
knee extensors in older folks is greater than that in younger
people. Exercise may benefit the older folks strengthen
that muscle so it can persist longer and potentially reduce
the muscle loss that naturally comes with aging. (2)
Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation can lead you to stronger quads!
COORDINATE KNEES AND LIMBS
Have you heard of patellofemoral pain syndrome? It
is a name for a most common musculoskeletal
disorder of atypical motor coordination of the limbs
which stresses the knees unevenly, putting them at risk of pain. (3) Understanding this
helps your Tonawanda chiropractor guide treatment
and exercise to help coordinate motion. One way
to improving motion is resistance training whose
effectiveness can really be noted in hopping. Researchers
found that hopping demands strong ankles and knees that interact
well. Resistance training improves strength and coordination resulting in gait and knee/ankle benefits.
