Knees and knee pain. Boy, do we work our knees…or at least
we should! Most Chiropractic Clinic hears about painful knees almost
as often as we hear about painful backs and necks! Murfreesboro
knee pain sufferers know the symptoms and feel the same: “I don’t want knee pain!” Most Chiropractic Clinic
has some enlightening new research on exercise, chiropractic care,
and nutrition to keep knee pain in check.
EXERCISE PROTECTS THE KNEES
If you suffer with Murfreesboro knee pain, it may seem that moving the painful knee will only aggravate
it more. Many doctors like yours at Most Chiropractic Clinic and researchers have
heard that! That’s fear. Most Chiropractic Clinic gets it!
Physical activity is good for your knee’s overall health though. Most Chiropractic Clinic
will work with you to calm your fear and be sure movement helps! Most Chiropractic Clinic also
reminds you that a sedentary lifestyle may cause more
issues and likely end in more joint health problems.
A study that followed people for 8 years revealed
that constant 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 state
that long-term strenuous activity participation didn’t increase
the incidence of knee osteoarthritis. That’s good news! They write
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! Most Chiropractic Clinic
is a great Murfreesboro 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 evaluated
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 benefit the older folks strengthen
that muscle so it can persist longer and potentially decrease
the muscle loss that normally comes with aging. (2)
Most Chiropractic Clinic can guide you toward stronger quads!
COORDINATE KNEES AND LIMBS
Have you heard of patellofemoral pain syndrome? It’s a name for a very common musculoskeletal
disorder that finds atypical motor coordination of the limbs
that loads the knees unequally, putting them at risk of pain. (3) Knowing this
helps your Murfreesboro chiropractor guide treatment
and exercise to help coordinate motion. One approach
toward improvement is resistance training whose
effectiveness can particularly be noted in hopping. Researchers
found that hopping requires strong ankles and knees that interact
well. Resistance training increases strength and coordination benefiting
knees and ankles.
(4) Don’t let the child in you start hopping just yet!
