Williamson Knee Pain Relief Tips Apple Country Chiropractic

Knees and knee pain. Boy, do we work our knees…or at least we should! Apple Country Chiropractic hears about painful knees almost as much as we hear about painful backs and necks! Williamson knee pain sufferers know the symptoms and feel the same: “I do not want knee pain!” Apple Country Chiropractic has some interesting new research on exercise, chiropractic care, and nutrition to keep knee pain under control.

EXERCISE PROTECTS THE KNEES

If you suffer with Williamson knee pain, moving may seem like it will only aggravate it more. Many doctors like yours at Apple Country Chiropractic and researchers hear that! That’s fear. Apple Country Chiropractic understands! Physical activity is good for your knee’s overall health though. Apple Country Chiropractic will be right beside you to calm your fear and be sure movement helps! Apple Country Chiropractic 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 found 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 lot, exercise, too. It helps. The authors specifically state that long-term strenuous activity participation did not raise the incidence of knee osteoarthritis. That’s good news! They report cautiously that people who were older, have a greater 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! Apple Country Chiropractic is a great Williamson health partner!

QUADRICEPS HELPS THE KNEES

And talk about good partners, quads are to knees! Knees need strong quadriceps. Exercising the quadriceps is wise! A study examined 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 help the older folks strengthen that muscle so it can persist longer and potentially decrease the muscle loss that naturally comes with aging. (2) Apple Country Chiropractic can lead you to stronger quads!

COORDINATE KNEES AND LIMBS

Ever heard of patellofemoral pain syndrome? It’s a term for a very common musculoskeletal disorder that finds unusual motor coordination of the limbs which loads the knees unevenly, putting them at risk of pain. (3) Understanding this helps your Williamson chiropractor direct treatment and exercise to help coordinate motion. One approach to improving motion is resistance training whose effectiveness can particularly be noticed in hopping. Researchers found that hopping requires strong ankles and knees that work together well. Resistance training improves strength and coordination benefiting knees and ankles. (4) Do not let the child in you hop away just yet! Chat with your Williamson chiropractor first!

TREAT AND SUPPLEMENT

The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management involves exercise, chiropractic treatment, and supplementation. Much the same can be done for knees! Exercise as described above, chiropractic treatment of the knee based on principles of Cox® Technic for the spine adapted by Dr. Luigi Albano, and supplementation with chondroitin sulfate and glucosamine sulfate help knee cartilage which is similar to disc cartilage.
