Knees and knee pain. Boy, do we work our knees…or at least
we should! Aaron Chiropractic Clinic hears about painful knees nearly
as often as we hear about painful backs and necks! Fort Wayne
knee pain sufferers know the symptoms and feel the same: “I do not want knee pain!” Aaron Chiropractic Clinic
has some enlightening new research on exercise, chiropractic care,
and nutrition to keep knee pain in check.
EXERCISE PROTECTS THE KNEES
If you have Fort Wayne knee pain, moving
may seem like it will only aggravate
it more. Many doctors like yours at Aaron Chiropractic Clinic and researchers hear that! That is fear. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic understands!
Physical activity is good for your knee’s overall health though. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic
will be right beside you to calm your fear and ensure movement is beneficial! Aaron Chiropractic Clinic 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 persistent 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 is beneficial. The authors specifically report
that long-term strenuous activity participation did not raise
the incidence of knee osteoarthritis. That’s good news! They write
cautiously that people who were older, have a higher BMI,
more severe pain, weaker quadriceps and depression were less
likely to do any strenuous activities. (1) If that’s you, let
us together get past these issues for your knees’ sake! Aaron Chiropractic Clinic
is a fabulous Fort Wayne 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 higher than that in younger
people. Exercise may help the older folks develop
that muscle so it can persist longer and potentially reduce
the muscle loss that normally comes with aging. (2)
Aaron Chiropractic Clinic can lead you to stronger quads!
COORDINATE KNEES AND LIMBS
Have you heard of patellofemoral pain syndrome? It’s a term for a very common musculoskeletal
disorder of atypical motor coordination of the limbs
which stresses the knees unequally, raising
their risk of pain. (3) Understanding this
helps your Fort Wayne chiropractor guide treatment
and exercise to assist in coordinating motion. One approach
toward improvement is resistance training whose
effectiveness can really be noted in hopping. Researchers
found that hopping demands strong ankles and knees that interact
well. Resistance training improves strength and coordination giving rise to gait and knee/ankle benefits.
(4) Don’t let the child in you start hopping just yet!
