Sandy Springs Knee Pain Relief Tips Cross Chiropractic Center

Knees and knee pain. Boy, do we work our knees…or at least we should! Cross Chiropractic Center hears about painful knees nearly as much as we hear about painful backs and necks! Sandy Springs knee pain sufferers know the symptoms and wonder “What can I do about this knee pain?” Cross 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 Sandy Springs knee pain, it may seem that moving the painful knee will only aggravate it more. Many doctors like yours at Cross Chiropractic Center and researchers hear that! That is fear. Cross Chiropractic Center understands! Physical activity is good for your knee’s overall health though. Cross Chiropractic Center will be right beside you to calm your fear and be sure movement helps! Cross Chiropractic Center also reminds you 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 constant sitting was not associated with knee osteoarthritis and 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’s good news! They report cautiously that people who were older, have a higher BMI, more severe pain, weaker quadriceps and depression were not as likely to do any strenuous activities. (1) If that is you, let’s get past these issues for your knees’ sake! Cross Chiropractic Center is a fabulous Sandy Springs health partner!

QUADRICEPS HELPS THE KNEES

And talk about good partners, quads are to knees! Strong quadriceps benefit knees. Exercising the quadriceps is wise! 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 higher than that in younger people. Exercise may help the older folks develop that muscle so it can last longer and potentially reduce the muscle loss that naturally comes with aging. (2) Cross 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 of unusual motor coordination of the limbs that stresses the knees unevenly, raising their risk of pain. (3) Understanding this helps your Sandy Springs chiropractor lead treatment and exercise to help coordinate motion. One approach to improving motion is resistance training whose effectiveness can particularly be noted 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 Sandy Springs chiropractor first!
