Richmond Knee Pain Relief Tips Johnson Chiropractic

Knees and knee pain. Boy, do we work our knees…or at least we should! Johnson Chiropractic hears about painful knees almost as much as we hear about painful backs and necks! Richmond knee pain sufferers know the symptoms and wonder “What can I do about this knee pain?” Johnson Chiropractic 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 Richmond knee pain, it may seem that moving the painful knee will only aggravate it more. Many doctors like yours at Johnson Chiropractic and researchers have heard that! That’s fear. Johnson Chiropractic gets it! Physical activity is good for your knee’s overall health though. Johnson Chiropractic will work with you to calm your fear and be sure movement helps! Johnson Chiropractic also will tell you again that a sedentary lifestyle may cause more issues and likely end in 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 strenuous physical activity is protective against knee osteoarthritis. If you sit a lot, exercise, too. It helps. The authors specifically state that long-term strenuous activity participation didn’t increase the incidence of knee osteoarthritis. That is good news! They write 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’s you, let’s get past these issues for your knees’ sake! Johnson Chiropractic is a great Richmond 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 evaluated younger and older folks performing 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 build that muscle so it can last longer and potentially reduce the muscle loss that normally comes with aging. (2) Johnson Chiropractic can guide you toward stronger quads!

COORDINATE KNEES AND LIMBS

Ever heard of patellofemoral pain syndrome? It is a term for a very common musculoskeletal disorder that finds unusual motor coordination of the limbs that loads the knees unevenly, putting them at risk of pain. (3) Understanding this helps your Richmond chiropractor direct treatment and exercise to assist in coordinating motion. One way to improving motion is resistance training whose effectiveness can really be noted in hopping. Researchers found that hopping demands strong ankles and knees that work together well. Resistance training increases strength and coordination giving rise to gait and knee/ankle benefits. (4) Don’t let the child in you start hopping just yet! Check with your Richmond chiropractor first!
