Buffalo, NY Knee Pain Relief Tips Disc Centers Of America

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

EXERCISE PROTECTS THE KNEES

If you suffer with Buffalo, NY knee pain, it may seem that moving the painful knee will only aggravate it more. Many doctors like yours at Disc Centers Of America and researchers have heard that! That’s fear. Disc Centers Of America understands! Physical activity is good for your knee’s overall health though. Disc Centers Of America will be right beside you to calm your fear and be sure movement is beneficial! Disc Centers Of America also will tell you again that a sedentary lifestyle may cause more issues and lead to more joint health problems. A study that tracked people for 8 years found that constant sitting was not associated with knee osteoarthritis and low to moderate level of active physical activity is protective against knee osteoarthritis. If you sit a great deal, exercise, too. It helps. The authors specifically report that long-term strenuous activity participation did not increase the incidence of knee osteoarthritis. That is good news! They report 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! Disc Centers Of America is a fabulous Buffalo, NY 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 persist longer and potentially reduce the muscle loss that normally comes with aging. (2) Disc Centers Of America can lead you to stronger quads!

COORDINATE KNEES AND LIMBS

Have you heard of patellofemoral pain syndrome? It’s a term for a very common musculoskeletal disorder of atypical motor coordination of the limbs that loads the knees unevenly, raising their risk of pain. (3) Understanding this helps your Buffalo, NY chiropractor direct treatment and exercise to help coordinate motion. One approach to improving motion is resistance training whose effectiveness can really be noted in hopping. Researchers found that hopping requires strong ankles and knees that work together well. Resistance training increases strength and coordination giving rise to gait and knee/ankle benefits. (4) Don’t let the child in you start hopping just yet! Chat with your Buffalo, NY chiropractor first!
