Minster Knee Pain Relief Tips Minster Chiropractic Center

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


If you have Minster knee pain, moving may seem like it will only aggravate it more. Many doctors like yours at Minster Chiropractic Center and researchers have heard that! That is fear. Minster Chiropractic Center understands! Physical activity is good for your knee’s overall health though. Minster Chiropractic Center will work with you to calm your fear and make sure movement helps! Minster Chiropractic Center also will tell you again that a sedentary lifestyle may cause more issues and likely end in more joint health troubles. A study that followed people for 8 years found that constant 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 great deal, exercise, too. It is beneficial. The authors specifically report that long-term strenuous activity participation didn’t 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 not as likely to do any strenuous activities. (1) If that is you, let’s get past these issues for your knees’ sake! Minster Chiropractic Center is a great Minster health partner!


And talk about good partners, quads are to knees! Knees need strong quadriceps. Exercising the quadriceps is smart! A study evaluated younger and older folks doing resistance exercises via machine vs. elastic band. Both work! 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 last longer and potentially decrease the muscle loss that normally comes with aging. (2) Minster Chiropractic Center can guide you toward stronger quads!


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, raising their risk of pain. (3) Knowing this helps your Minster chiropractor guide treatment and exercise to assist in coordinating motion. One approach to improving motion is resistance training whose effectiveness can really be noticed in hopping. Researchers found that hopping demands 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 start hopping just yet! Check with your Minster chiropractor first!
