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.
