Knees and knee pain. Boy, do we work our knees…or at least
we should! Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center hears about painful knees almost
as often as we hear about painful backs and necks! Pensacola
knee pain sufferers know the symptoms and wonder “What can I do about this
knee pain?” Pensacola Spinal Rehab 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 Pensacola knee pain, it may seem that moving the painful knee will only aggravate
it more. Many doctors like yours at Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center and researchers hear that! That’s fear. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center understands!
Physical activity is good for your knee’s overall health though. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center
will be right beside you to calm your fear and ensure movement is beneficial! Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center 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 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 helps. The authors specifically state
that long-term strenuous activity participation did not increase
the incidence of knee osteoarthritis. That is good news! They write
cautiously that people who were older, have a greater 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! Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center
is a fabulous Pensacola 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 evaluated
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 last longer and potentially decrease
the muscle loss that naturally comes with aging. (2)
Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center can lead you to stronger quads!
COORDINATE KNEES AND LIMBS
Have you heard of patellofemoral pain syndrome? It
is a term for a most common musculoskeletal
disorder that finds unusual motor coordination of the limbs
that loads the knees unequally, putting them at risk of pain. (3) Knowing this
helps your Pensacola chiropractor guide treatment
and exercise to help coordinate motion. One approach
toward improvement is resistance training whose
effectiveness can particularly be noted in hopping. Researchers
found that hopping requires strong ankles and knees that work together
well. Resistance training increases strength and coordination benefiting
knees and ankles.
