Knees and knee pain. Boy, do we work our knees…or at least
we should! Moses Chiropractic hears about painful knees almost
as often as we hear about painful backs and necks! West Palm Beach
knee pain sufferers know the symptoms and wonder “What can I do about this
knee pain?” Moses 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 West Palm Beach knee pain, moving
may seem like it will only aggravate
it more. Many doctors like yours at Moses Chiropractic and researchers hear that! That is fear. Moses Chiropractic understands!
Physical activity is good for your knee’s overall health though. Moses Chiropractic
will work with you to calm your fear and ensure movement helps! Moses Chiropractic 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 found
that persistent 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 didn’t raise
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 not as
likely to do any strenuous activities. (1) If that’s you, let
us together get past these issues for your knees’ sake! Moses Chiropractic
is a great West Palm Beach 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 succeed! 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 persist longer and potentially decrease
the muscle loss that naturally comes with aging. (2)
Moses Chiropractic can guide you toward stronger quads!
COORDINATE KNEES AND LIMBS
Have you heard of patellofemoral pain syndrome? It’s a term for a most common musculoskeletal
disorder that finds atypical motor coordination of the limbs
which stresses the knees unevenly, putting them at risk of pain. (3) Knowing this
helps your West Palm Beach chiropractor guide treatment
and exercise to assist in coordinating motion. One way
to improving motion is resistance training whose
effectiveness can particularly be noticed in hopping. Researchers
found that hopping demands strong ankles and knees that interact
well. Resistance training increases strength and coordination giving rise to gait and knee/ankle benefits.

exercise, chiropractic treatment, and supplementation. Much the same can be applied
