Colorado Springs Knee Pain Relief Tips The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR

Knees and knee pain. Boy, do we work our knees…or at least we should! The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR hears about painful knees almost as often as we hear about painful backs and necks! Colorado Springs knee pain sufferers know the symptoms and feel the same: “I do not want knee pain!” The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR 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 Colorado Springs knee pain, it may seem that moving the painful knee will only aggravate it more. Many doctors like yours at The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR and researchers hear that! That is fear. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR gets it! Physical activity is good for your knee’s overall health though. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR will work with you to calm your fear and be sure movement helps! The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR 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 revealed that constant sitting was not related to knee osteoarthritis while low to moderate level of active physical activity is protective against knee osteoarthritis. If you sit a great deal, exercise, too. It helps. The authors specifically report that long-term strenuous activity participation did not increase the incidence of knee osteoarthritis. That is good news! They write cautiously that people who were older, have a greater BMI, more severe pain, weaker quadriceps and depression were less likely to do any strenuous activities. (1) If that’s you, let’s get past these issues for your knees’ sake! The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR is a great Colorado Springs 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 succeed! 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 last longer and potentially reduce the muscle loss that naturally comes with aging. (2) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR can guide you toward stronger quads!

COORDINATE KNEES AND LIMBS

Ever 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 unevenly, raising their risk of pain. (3) Understanding this helps your Colorado Springs chiropractor guide treatment and exercise to help coordinate motion. One approach to improving motion is resistance training whose effectiveness can really be noticed in hopping. Researchers found that hopping requires strong ankles and knees that interact well. Resistance training increases strength and coordination benefiting knees and ankles. (4) Do not let the child in you hop away just yet! Check with your Colorado Springs chiropractor first!
