Plainville Knee Pain Relief Tips Layden Chiropractic

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

EXERCISE PROTECTS THE KNEES

If you have Plainville knee pain, it may seem that moving the painful knee will only aggravate it more. Many doctors like yours at Layden Chiropractic and researchers have heard that! That is fear. Layden Chiropractic understands! Physical activity is good for your knee’s overall health though. Layden Chiropractic will work with you to calm your fear and ensure movement is beneficial! Layden Chiropractic also reminds you that a sedentary lifestyle may cause more issues and likely end in more joint health problems. A study that tracked people for 8 years revealed that persistent sitting was not related to knee osteoarthritis and low to moderate level of active physical activity is protective against knee osteoarthritis. If you sit a lot, exercise, too. It helps. The authors specifically report that long-term strenuous activity participation did not raise the incidence of knee osteoarthritis. That is good news! They report cautiously that people who were older, have a greater BMI, more severe pain, weaker quadriceps and depression were not as likely to do any strenuous activities. (1) If that is you, let us together get past these issues for your knees’ sake! Layden Chiropractic is a fabulous Plainville health partner!

QUADRICEPS HELPS THE KNEES

And talk about good partners, quads are to knees! Knees need strong quadriceps. 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 higher than that in younger people. Exercise may benefit the older folks build that muscle so it can persist longer and potentially reduce the muscle loss that naturally comes with aging. (2) Layden Chiropractic can guide you toward stronger quads!

COORDINATE KNEES AND LIMBS

Have you heard of patellofemoral pain syndrome? It is a term for a very common musculoskeletal disorder that finds atypical motor coordination of the limbs which loads the knees unequally, putting them at risk of pain. (3) Knowing this helps your Plainville chiropractor direct treatment and exercise to assist in coordinating motion. One way toward improvement is resistance training whose effectiveness can particularly be noticed in hopping. Researchers found that hopping demands strong ankles and knees that interact well. Resistance training improves strength and coordination resulting in gait and knee/ankle benefits. (4) Don’t let the child in you hop away just yet! Check with your Plainville chiropractor first!
