New Roads Knee Pain Relief Tips New Roads Chiropractic Center

Knees and knee pain. Boy, do we work our knees…or at least we should! New Roads Chiropractic Center hears about painful knees nearly as much as we hear about painful backs and necks! New Roads knee pain sufferers know the symptoms and wonder “What can I do about this knee pain?” New Roads Chiropractic Center has some interesting new research on exercise, chiropractic care, and nutrition to keep knee pain in check.

EXERCISE PROTECTS THE KNEES

If you have New Roads knee pain, it may seem that moving the painful knee will only aggravate it more. Many doctors like yours at New Roads Chiropractic Center and researchers hear that! That is fear. New Roads Chiropractic Center gets it! Physical activity is good for your knee’s overall health though. New Roads Chiropractic Center will work with you to calm your fear and be sure movement is beneficial! New Roads Chiropractic Center also will tell you again that a sedentary lifestyle may cause more issues and likely end in more joint health troubles. A study that tracked people for 8 years found that persistent sitting was not related to knee osteoarthritis and low to moderate level of energetic 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 increase the incidence of knee osteoarthritis. That is good news! They report cautiously that people who were older, have a larger BMI, more severe pain, weaker quadriceps and depression were less likely to do any strenuous activities. (1) If that’s you, let’s get past these issues for your knees’ sake! New Roads Chiropractic Center is a fabulous New Roads health partner!

QUADRICEPS HELPS THE KNEES

And talk about good partners, quads are to knees! Knees need strong quadriceps. Exercising the quadriceps is wise! A study examined younger and older folks performing resistance exercises via machine vs. elastic band. Both succeed! Maximal voluntary contraction of the knee extensors in older folks is greater than that in younger people. Exercise may help the older folks develop that muscle so it can last longer and potentially reduce the muscle loss that naturally comes with aging. (2) New Roads Chiropractic Center can lead you to stronger quads!

COORDINATE KNEES AND LIMBS

Ever heard of patellofemoral pain syndrome? It’s a name for a very common musculoskeletal disorder that finds atypical motor coordination of the limbs which stresses the knees unevenly, putting them at risk of pain. (3) Knowing this helps your New Roads chiropractor direct treatment and exercise to help coordinate motion. One way to improving motion is resistance training whose effectiveness can particularly be noticed in hopping. Researchers found that hopping requires strong ankles and knees that interact well. Resistance training improves strength and coordination benefiting knees and ankles. (4) Do not let the child in you start hopping just yet! Talk with your New Roads chiropractor first!

TREAT AND SUPPLEMENT

The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management incorporates exercise, chiropractic treatment, and supplementation. Much the same can be applied to the care of knees! Exercise as discussed above, chiropractic treatment of the knee based on principles of Cox® Technic for the spine adapted by Dr. Luigi Albano, and supplementation with chondroitin sulfate and glucosamine sulfate benefit knee cartilage which is similar to disc cartilage.
