Lynchburg Knee Pain Relief Tips Palmer Chiropractic Center

Knees and knee pain. Boy, do we work our knees…or at least we should! Palmer Chiropractic Center hears about painful knees nearly as often as we hear about painful backs and necks! Lynchburg knee pain sufferers know the symptoms and feel the same: “I do not want knee pain!” Palmer Chiropractic Center has some enlightening new research on exercise, chiropractic care, and nutrition to keep knee pain in check.

EXERCISE PROTECTS THE KNEES

If you have Lynchburg knee pain, it may seem that moving the painful knee will only aggravate it more. Many doctors like yours at Palmer Chiropractic Center and researchers have heard that! That’s fear. Palmer Chiropractic Center understands! Physical activity is good for your knee’s overall health though. Palmer Chiropractic Center will be right beside you to calm your fear and ensure movement is beneficial! Palmer Chiropractic Center 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 found that constant sitting was not related to knee osteoarthritis while low to moderate level of energetic physical activity is protective against knee osteoarthritis. If you sit a lot, exercise, too. It is beneficial. The authors specifically report that long-term strenuous activity participation did not raise 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 is you, let’s get past these issues for your knees’ sake! Palmer Chiropractic Center is a great Lynchburg 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 doing 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 strengthen that muscle so it can persist longer and potentially decrease the muscle loss that naturally comes with aging. (2) Palmer Chiropractic Center can guide you toward stronger quads!

COORDINATE KNEES AND LIMBS

Ever heard of patellofemoral pain syndrome? It is a name for a very common musculoskeletal disorder that finds atypical motor coordination of the limbs which stresses the knees unevenly, raising their risk of pain. (3) Knowing this helps your Lynchburg chiropractor lead treatment and exercise to help coordinate motion. One approach to improving motion is resistance training whose effectiveness can particularly be noticed in hopping. Researchers found that hopping requires strong ankles and knees that work together well. Resistance training increases strength and coordination benefiting knees and ankles. (4) Do not let the child in you hop away just yet! Chat with your Lynchburg chiropractor first!
