Fernandina Beach Knee Pain Relief Tips Amelia Chiropractic Clinic

Knees and knee pain. Boy, do we work our knees…or at least we should! Amelia Chiropractic Clinic hears about painful knees nearly as much as we hear about painful backs and necks! Fernandina Beach knee pain sufferers know the symptoms and feel the same: “I don’t want knee pain!” Amelia Chiropractic Clinic has some enlightening new research on exercise, chiropractic care, and nutrition to keep knee pain under control.

EXERCISE PROTECTS THE KNEES

If you have Fernandina Beach knee pain, it may seem that moving the painful knee will only aggravate it more. Many doctors like yours at Amelia Chiropractic Clinic and researchers have heard that! That’s fear. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic gets it! Physical activity is good for your knee’s overall health though. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic will work with you to calm your fear and be sure movement is beneficial! Amelia Chiropractic Clinic also reminds you that a sedentary lifestyle may cause more issues and likely end in more joint health troubles. A study that followed people for 8 years revealed that constant sitting was not related to knee osteoarthritis and low to moderate level of energetic physical activity is protective against knee osteoarthritis. If you sit a great deal, exercise, too. It helps. The authors specifically report that long-term strenuous activity participation did not increase 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 not as likely to do any strenuous activities. (1) If that is you, let’s get past these issues for your knees’ sake! Amelia Chiropractic Clinic is a great Fernandina Beach 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 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 build that muscle so it can persist longer and potentially reduce the muscle loss that naturally comes with aging. (2) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic can guide you toward stronger quads!

COORDINATE KNEES AND LIMBS

Ever heard of patellofemoral pain syndrome? It’s a name for a most common musculoskeletal disorder that finds atypical motor coordination of the limbs that loads the knees unequally, putting them at risk of pain. (3) Understanding this helps your Fernandina Beach chiropractor guide treatment and exercise to help coordinate motion. One approach toward improvement is resistance training whose effectiveness can really be noticed 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. (4) Do not let the child in you start hopping just yet! Chat with your Fernandina Beach 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 discussed 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 benefit knee cartilage which is similar to disc cartilage.
