Carrolltown Knee Pain Relief Tips Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation

Knees and knee pain. Boy, do we work our knees…or at least we should! Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation hears about painful knees nearly as much as we hear about painful backs and necks! Carrolltown knee pain sufferers know the symptoms and feel the same: “I don’t want knee pain!” Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation 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 Carrolltown knee pain, moving may seem like it will only aggravate it more. Many doctors like yours at Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation and researchers have heard that! That’s fear. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation gets it! Physical activity is good for your knee’s overall health though. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation will work with you to calm your fear and be sure movement is beneficial! Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation 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 persistent sitting was not associated with knee osteoarthritis while 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 increase the incidence of knee osteoarthritis. That’s good news! They write 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’s you, let’s get past these issues for your knees’ sake! Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation is a great Carrolltown 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 evaluated 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 help the older folks strengthen that muscle so it can persist longer and potentially reduce the muscle loss that normally comes with aging. (2) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation can lead you to stronger quads!

COORDINATE KNEES AND LIMBS

Have you heard of patellofemoral pain syndrome? It’s a term for a most common musculoskeletal disorder of atypical motor coordination of the limbs which stresses the knees unequally, putting them at risk of pain. (3) Knowing this helps your Carrolltown chiropractor guide treatment and exercise to assist in coordinating motion. One approach to improving motion is resistance training whose effectiveness can really be noticed in hopping. Researchers found that hopping demands strong ankles and knees that work together 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 Carrolltown chiropractor first!
