Richmond Knee Pain Relief Tips Johnson Chiropractic

May 19, 2020

Knees and knee pain. Boy, do we work our knees…or at least we should! Johnson Chiropractic hears about painful knees nearly 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 interesting new research on exercise, chiropractic care, and nutrition to keep knee pain in check.


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 hear that! That’s fear. Johnson Chiropractic understands! Physical activity is good for your knee’s overall health though. Johnson Chiropractic will work with you to calm your fear and ensure movement is beneficial! Johnson Chiropractic also reminds you that a sedentary lifestyle may cause more issues and lead to more joint health problems. A study that tracked people for 8 years revealed that constant sitting was not related to knee osteoarthritis while 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 higher 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! Johnson Chiropractic is a fabulous Richmond health partner!


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 help the older folks build that muscle so it can persist longer and potentially decrease the muscle loss that normally comes with aging. (2) Johnson Chiropractic can lead you to stronger quads!


Have you heard of patellofemoral pain syndrome? It is 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 Richmond 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 requires strong ankles and knees that interact well. Resistance training improves strength and coordination giving rise to gait and knee/ankle benefits. (4) Do not let the child in you start hopping just yet! Check with your Richmond chiropractor first!
