Millville Knee Pain Relief Tips Wilson Family Chiropractic

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

EXERCISE PROTECTS THE KNEES

If you have Millville knee pain, moving may seem like it will only aggravate it more. Many doctors like yours at Wilson Family Chiropractic and researchers have heard that! That is fear. Wilson Family Chiropractic gets it! Physical activity is good for your knee’s overall health though. Wilson Family Chiropractic will be right beside you to calm your fear and make sure movement is beneficial! Wilson Family Chiropractic 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 persistent sitting was not related to knee osteoarthritis while low to moderate level of energetic 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 write cautiously that people who were older, have a greater BMI, more severe pain, weaker quadriceps and depression were not as likely to do any strenuous activities. (1) If that’s you, let’s get past these issues for your knees’ sake! Wilson Family Chiropractic is a fabulous Millville health partner!

QUADRICEPS HELPS THE KNEES

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 performing resistance exercises via machine vs. elastic band. Both work! Maximal voluntary contraction of the knee extensors in older folks is higher than that in younger people. Exercise may help the older folks build that muscle so it can last longer and potentially decrease the muscle loss that naturally comes with aging. (2) Wilson Family Chiropractic can guide you toward stronger quads!

COORDINATE KNEES AND LIMBS

Ever heard of patellofemoral pain syndrome? It is a name for a most common musculoskeletal disorder that finds atypical motor coordination of the limbs which loads the knees unequally, raising their risk of pain. (3) Understanding this helps your Millville chiropractor guide treatment and exercise to assist in coordinating motion. One way toward improvement is resistance training whose effectiveness can really be noted 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 start hopping just yet! Check with your Millville 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 defined 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. Wilson Family Chiropractic will establish a chiropractic treatment plan for your knees no matter their age!
