Burlington and Hamilton Knee Pain Relief Tips Spinal Care Clinic

Knees and knee pain. Boy, do we work our knees…or at least we should! Spinal Care Clinic hears about painful knees nearly as often as we hear about painful backs and necks! Burlington and Hamilton knee pain sufferers know the symptoms and wonder “What can I do about this knee pain?” Spinal Care Clinic has some enlightening new research on exercise, chiropractic care, and nutrition to keep knee pain in check.

EXERCISE PROTECTS THE KNEES

If you suffer with Burlington and Hamilton knee pain, moving may seem like it will only aggravate it more. Many doctors like yours at Spinal Care Clinic and researchers have heard that! That’s fear. Spinal Care Clinic gets it! Physical activity is good for your knee’s overall health though. Spinal Care Clinic will work with you to calm your fear and be sure movement helps! Spinal Care Clinic also will tell you again that a sedentary lifestyle may cause more issues and lead to more joint health troubles. A study that tracked people for 8 years revealed that persistent sitting was not associated with 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 state that long-term strenuous activity participation did not increase 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 us together get past these issues for your knees’ sake! Spinal Care Clinic is a fabulous Burlington and Hamilton 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 compared younger and older folks doing resistance exercises via machine vs. elastic band. Both succeed! Maximal voluntary contraction of the knee extensors in older folks is greater than that in younger people. Exercise may help the older folks develop that muscle so it can persist longer and potentially decrease the muscle loss that naturally comes with aging. (2) Spinal Care Clinic can lead you to stronger quads!

COORDINATE KNEES AND LIMBS

Have you heard of patellofemoral pain syndrome? It’s a name for a most common musculoskeletal disorder of atypical motor coordination of the limbs that stresses the knees unevenly, putting them at risk of pain. (3) Understanding this helps your Burlington and Hamilton chiropractor guide treatment and exercise to help coordinate motion. One way toward improvement is resistance training whose effectiveness can particularly be noted in hopping. Researchers found that hopping requires strong ankles and knees that interact well. Resistance training improves strength and coordination benefiting knees and ankles. (4) Do not let the child in you hop away just yet! Chat with your Burlington and Hamilton chiropractor first!
