Baton Rouge Knee Pain Relief Tips Spine & Sports Rehab Center

Knees and knee pain. Boy, do we work our knees…or at least we should! Spine & Sports Rehab Center hears about painful knees almost as much as we hear about painful backs and necks! Baton Rouge knee pain sufferers know the symptoms and feel the same: “I do not want knee pain!” Spine & Sports Rehab Center has some interesting new research on exercise, chiropractic care, and nutrition to keep knee pain in check.

EXERCISE PROTECTS THE KNEES

If you suffer with Baton Rouge knee pain, moving may seem like it will only aggravate it more. Many doctors like yours at Spine & Sports Rehab Center and researchers hear that! That’s fear. Spine & Sports Rehab Center understands! Physical activity is good for your knee’s overall health though. Spine & Sports Rehab Center will be right beside you to calm your fear and be sure movement is beneficial! Spine & Sports Rehab Center also will tell you again that a sedentary lifestyle may cause more issues and lead to more joint health troubles. A study that tracked people for 8 years found that constant sitting was not related to knee osteoarthritis and low to moderate level of active physical activity is protective against knee osteoarthritis. If you sit a lot, exercise, too. It is beneficial. The authors specifically report that long-term strenuous activity participation did not raise the incidence of knee osteoarthritis. That is good news! They report 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’s get past these issues for your knees’ sake! Spine & Sports Rehab Center is a great Baton Rouge health partner!

QUADRICEPS HELPS THE KNEES

And talk about good partners, quads are to knees! Strong quadriceps benefit knees. Exercising the quadriceps is wise! A study examined 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 help the older folks develop that muscle so it can last longer and potentially decrease the muscle loss that normally comes with aging. (2) Spine & Sports Rehab Center can lead you to stronger quads!

COORDINATE KNEES AND LIMBS

Have you heard of patellofemoral pain syndrome? It’s a term for a most common musculoskeletal disorder of atypical motor coordination of the limbs which stresses the knees unequally, raising their risk of pain. (3) Understanding this helps your Baton Rouge chiropractor lead 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! Talk with your Baton Rouge chiropractor first!
