Vancouver Knee Pain Relief Tips Vancouver Spine Care Centre

Knees and knee pain. Boy, do we work our knees…or at least we should! Vancouver Spine Care Centre hears about painful knees almost as much as we hear about painful backs and necks! Vancouver knee pain sufferers know the symptoms and feel the same: “I don’t want knee pain!” Vancouver Spine Care Centre 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 Vancouver knee pain, it may seem that moving the painful knee will only aggravate it more. Many doctors like yours at Vancouver Spine Care Centre and researchers have heard that! That is fear. Vancouver Spine Care Centre understands! Physical activity is good for your knee’s overall health though. Vancouver Spine Care Centre will be right beside you to calm your fear and be sure movement helps! Vancouver Spine Care Centre also reminds you that a sedentary lifestyle may cause more issues and lead to 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 strenuous 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 didn’t 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 less likely to do any strenuous activities. (1) If that’s you, let’s get past these issues for your knees’ sake! Vancouver Spine Care Centre is a great Vancouver health partner!

QUADRICEPS HELPS THE KNEES

And talk about good partners, quads are to knees! Strong quadriceps benefit knees. 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 greater than that in younger people. Exercise may help the older folks strengthen that muscle so it can last longer and potentially decrease the muscle loss that naturally comes with aging. (2) Vancouver Spine Care Centre can guide you toward stronger quads!

COORDINATE KNEES AND LIMBS

Ever heard of patellofemoral pain syndrome? It is a term for a very common musculoskeletal disorder of atypical motor coordination of the limbs which stresses the knees unevenly, putting them at risk of pain. (3) Understanding this helps your Vancouver chiropractor guide treatment and exercise to help coordinate 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 resulting in gait and knee/ankle benefits. (4) Don’t let the child in you hop away just yet! Check with your Vancouver chiropractor first!
