Pflugerville Knee Pain Relief Tips Pflugerville Wellness Center

Knees and knee pain. Boy, do we work our knees…or at least we should! Pflugerville Wellness Center hears about painful knees almost as much as we hear about painful backs and necks! Pflugerville knee pain sufferers know the symptoms and wonder “What can I do about this knee pain?” Pflugerville Wellness Center has some enlightening new research on exercise, chiropractic care, and nutrition to keep knee pain under control.

EXERCISE PROTECTS THE KNEES

If you have Pflugerville knee pain, moving may seem like it will only aggravate it more. Many doctors like yours at Pflugerville Wellness Center and researchers have heard that! That is fear. Pflugerville Wellness Center gets it! Physical activity is good for your knee’s overall health though. Pflugerville Wellness Center will be right beside you to calm your fear and be sure movement is beneficial! Pflugerville Wellness Center also will tell you again that a sedentary lifestyle may cause more issues and likely end in more joint health problems. A study that tracked people for 8 years revealed that persistent sitting was not associated with 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 report that long-term strenuous activity participation did not increase the incidence of knee osteoarthritis. That is 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! Pflugerville Wellness Center is a great Pflugerville 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 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 develop that muscle so it can persist longer and potentially reduce the muscle loss that normally comes with aging. (2) Pflugerville Wellness Center 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 that finds atypical motor coordination of the limbs which stresses the knees unequally, putting them at risk of pain. (3) Understanding this helps your Pflugerville chiropractor direct treatment and exercise to assist in coordinating motion. One approach to improving motion is resistance training whose effectiveness can really be noted in hopping. Researchers found that hopping requires 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 Pflugerville chiropractor first!
