Manchester Knee Pain Relief Tips Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries

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

EXERCISE PROTECTS THE KNEES

If you have Manchester knee pain, moving may seem like it will only aggravate it more. Many doctors like yours at Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries and researchers hear that! That is fear. Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries understands! Physical activity is good for your knee’s overall health though. Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries will work with you to calm your fear and make sure movement helps! Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries 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 active physical activity is protective against knee osteoarthritis. If you sit a lot, exercise, too. It is beneficial. The authors specifically state that long-term strenuous activity participation did not increase the incidence of knee osteoarthritis. That’s good news! They report cautiously that people who were older, have a larger BMI, more severe pain, weaker quadriceps and depression were less likely to do any strenuous activities. (1) If that is you, let us together get past these issues for your knees’ sake! Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries is a great Manchester 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 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) Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries can lead you to stronger quads!

COORDINATE KNEES AND LIMBS

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