Baton Rouge Knee Pain Relief Tips Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation

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

EXERCISE PROTECTS THE KNEES

If you have Baton Rouge knee pain, moving may seem like it will only aggravate it more. Many doctors like yours at Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation and researchers have heard that! That is fear. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation gets it! Physical activity is good for your knee’s overall health though. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation will work with you to calm your fear and make sure movement is beneficial! Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation 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 associated with knee osteoarthritis while 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 state that long-term strenuous activity participation didn’t raise the incidence of knee osteoarthritis. That is good news! They write cautiously that people who were older, have a higher BMI, more severe pain, weaker quadriceps and depression were less likely to do any strenuous activities. (1) If that is you, let’s get past these issues for your knees’ sake! Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation is a great Baton Rouge 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 compared 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 benefit the older folks develop that muscle so it can persist longer and potentially reduce the muscle loss that normally comes with aging. (2) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation can lead you to stronger quads!

COORDINATE KNEES AND LIMBS

Have you heard of patellofemoral pain syndrome? It is a term for a very common musculoskeletal disorder that finds atypical motor coordination of the limbs which loads the knees unevenly, raising their risk of pain. (3) Knowing this helps your Baton Rouge chiropractor direct 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 demands strong ankles and knees that interact well. Resistance training increases strength and coordination resulting in gait and knee/ankle benefits. (4) Do not let the child in you hop away just yet! Chat with your Baton Rouge chiropractor first!
