Brooks Knee Pain Relief Tips Soft Health and Healing Clinic

Knees and knee pain. Boy, do we work our knees…or at least we should! Soft Health and Healing Clinic hears about painful knees almost as much as we hear about painful backs and necks! Brooks knee pain sufferers know the symptoms and feel the same: “I don’t want knee pain!” Soft Health and Healing Clinic has some enlightening new research on exercise, chiropractic care, and nutrition to keep knee pain in check.

EXERCISE PROTECTS THE KNEES

If you have Brooks knee pain, it may seem that moving the painful knee will only aggravate it more. Many doctors like yours at Soft Health and Healing Clinic and researchers hear that! That’s fear. Soft Health and Healing Clinic understands! Physical activity is good for your knee’s overall health though. Soft Health and Healing Clinic will work with you to calm your fear and make sure movement helps! Soft Health and Healing Clinic also will tell you again that a sedentary lifestyle may cause more issues and likely end in more joint health problems. A study that followed people for 8 years found that persistent 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 lot, exercise, too. It helps. The authors specifically report that long-term strenuous activity participation didn’t raise the incidence of knee osteoarthritis. That’s good news! They write cautiously that people who were older, have a larger BMI, more severe pain, weaker quadriceps and depression were less likely to do any strenuous activities. (1) If that is you, let us together get past these issues for your knees’ sake! Soft Health and Healing Clinic is a fabulous Brooks 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 compared 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 build that muscle so it can last longer and potentially decrease the muscle loss that normally comes with aging. (2) Soft Health and Healing Clinic can guide you toward stronger quads!

COORDINATE KNEES AND LIMBS

Ever heard of patellofemoral pain syndrome? It’s a name for a most common musculoskeletal disorder of atypical motor coordination of the limbs that loads the knees unequally, raising their risk of pain. (3) Knowing this helps your Brooks chiropractor guide treatment and exercise to assist in coordinating motion. One way to improving motion is resistance training whose effectiveness can particularly be noted in hopping. Researchers found that hopping requires strong ankles and knees that interact well. Resistance training increases strength and coordination benefiting knees and ankles. (4) Do not let the child in you start hopping just yet! Talk with your Brooks chiropractor first!
