West Palm Beach Knee Pain Relief Tips Chiropractic Care

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

EXERCISE PROTECTS THE KNEES

If you suffer with West Palm Beach knee pain, it may seem that moving the painful knee will only aggravate it more. Many doctors like yours at Chiropractic Care and researchers have heard that! That’s fear. Chiropractic Care understands! Physical activity is good for your knee’s overall health though. Chiropractic Care will work with you to calm your fear and make sure movement helps! Chiropractic Care also reminds you that a sedentary lifestyle may cause more issues and lead to more joint health problems. A study that tracked people for 8 years found that persistent sitting was not associated with knee osteoarthritis and low to moderate level of active physical activity is protective against knee osteoarthritis. If you sit a great deal, exercise, too. It helps. The authors specifically state that long-term strenuous activity participation did not raise the incidence of knee osteoarthritis. That is good news! They write cautiously that people who were older, have a higher BMI, more severe pain, weaker quadriceps and depression were not as likely to do any strenuous activities. (1) If that’s you, let’s get past these issues for your knees’ sake! Chiropractic Care is a fabulous West Palm Beach 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 doing resistance exercises via machine vs. elastic band. Both succeed! Maximal voluntary contraction of the knee extensors in older folks is higher than that in younger people. Exercise may benefit the older folks build that muscle so it can persist longer and potentially decrease the muscle loss that normally comes with aging. (2) Chiropractic Care can lead you to stronger quads!

COORDINATE KNEES AND LIMBS

Ever heard of patellofemoral pain syndrome? It is a term for a most common musculoskeletal disorder that finds atypical motor coordination of the limbs that stresses the knees unequally, putting them at risk of pain. (3) Knowing this helps your West Palm Beach chiropractor lead treatment and exercise to help coordinate motion. One approach toward improvement is resistance training whose effectiveness can really be noted in hopping. Researchers found that hopping requires strong ankles and knees that work together well. Resistance training increases strength and coordination giving rise to gait and knee/ankle benefits. (4) Don’t let the child in you hop away just yet!
