Knees and knee pain. Boy, do we work our knees…or at least we should!

St. Francisville knee pain sufferers know the symptoms and feel the same: “I don’t want knee pain!” Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville 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 St. Francisville knee pain, moving may seem like it will only aggravate it more. Many doctors like yours at Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville and researchers hear that! That is fear. Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville understands! Physical activity is good for your knee’s overall health though. Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville will be right beside you to calm your fear and be sure movement is beneficial! Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville also will tell you again that a sedentary lifestyle may cause more issues and lead to more joint health problems. A study that followed people for 8 years found that constant sitting was not related to knee osteoarthritis while low to moderate level of strenuous 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’s good news! They report cautiously that people who were older, have a higher BMI, more severe pain, weaker quadriceps and depression were less likely to do any strenuous activities. (1) If that’s you, let us together get past these issues for your knees’ sake! Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville is a fabulous St. Francisville 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 compared younger and older folks performing resistance exercises via machine vs. elastic band. Both work! Maximal voluntary contraction of the knee extensors in older folks is greater than that in younger people. Exercise may benefit the older folks develop that muscle so it can last longer and potentially reduce the muscle loss that normally comes with aging. (2) Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville can guide you toward stronger quads!

COORDINATE KNEES AND LIMBS

Have you heard of patellofemoral pain syndrome? It is a name for a very common musculoskeletal disorder of unusual motor coordination of the limbs which stresses the knees unequally, putting them at risk of pain. (3) Understanding this helps your St. Francisville chiropractor guide treatment and exercise to help coordinate motion. One approach to improving motion is resistance training whose effectiveness can really be noted in hopping. Researchers found that hopping requires strong ankles and knees that interact well. Resistance training improves strength and coordination giving rise to gait and knee/ankle benefits. (4) Don’t let the child in you hop away just yet! Chat with your St. Francisville chiropractor first!
