Knees and knee pain. Boy, do we work our knees…or at least
we should! Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC hears about painful knees almost
as often as we hear about painful backs and necks! Fort Wayne
knee pain sufferers know the symptoms and wonder “What can I do about this
knee pain?” Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC
has some interesting new research on exercise, chiropractic care,
and nutrition to keep knee pain under control.
EXERCISE PROTECTS THE KNEES
If you suffer with Fort Wayne knee pain, it may seem that moving the painful knee will only aggravate
it more. Many doctors like yours at Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC and researchers have
heard that! That is fear. Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC understands!
Physical activity is good for your knee’s overall health though. Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC
will work with you to calm your fear and make
sure movement helps! Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC also
will tell you again that a sedentary lifestyle may cause more
issues and likely end in more joint health troubles.
A study that followed 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 is beneficial. The authors specifically state
that long-term strenuous activity participation did not raise
the incidence of knee osteoarthritis. That’s good news! They report
cautiously that people who were older, have a larger BMI,
more severe pain, weaker quadriceps and depression were not as
likely to do any strenuous activities. (1) If that is you, let’s get past these issues for your knees’ sake! Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC
is a great Fort Wayne 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 compared
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 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 naturally comes with aging. (2)
Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC can lead you to stronger quads!
COORDINATE KNEES AND LIMBS
Ever heard of patellofemoral pain syndrome? It’s a name for a most common musculoskeletal
disorder of unusual motor coordination of the limbs
that stresses the knees unequally, raising
their risk of pain. (3) Understanding this
helps your Fort Wayne chiropractor guide treatment
and exercise to assist in coordinating 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 improves strength and coordination benefiting
knees and ankles.
