San Jose Knee Pain Relief Tips Chiropractic Solutions

Knees and knee pain. Boy, do we work our knees…or at least we should! Chiropractic Solutions hears about painful knees almost as often as we hear about painful backs and necks! San Jose knee pain sufferers know the symptoms and wonder “What can I do about this knee pain?” Chiropractic Solutions has some enlightening new research on exercise, chiropractic care, and nutrition to keep knee pain in check.

EXERCISE PROTECTS THE KNEES

If you suffer with San Jose knee pain, it may seem that moving the painful knee will only aggravate it more. Many doctors like yours at Chiropractic Solutions and researchers hear that! That is fear. Chiropractic Solutions gets it! Physical activity is good for your knee’s overall health though. Chiropractic Solutions will work with you to calm your fear and be sure movement helps! Chiropractic Solutions also reminds you that a sedentary lifestyle may cause more issues and likely end in more joint health problems. A study that tracked 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 helps. 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 is you, let’s get past these issues for your knees’ sake! Chiropractic Solutions is a great San Jose health partner!

QUADRICEPS HELPS THE KNEES

And talk about good partners, quads are to knees! Knees need strong quadriceps. Exercising the quadriceps is wise! 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 higher than that in younger people. Exercise may benefit the older folks strengthen that muscle so it can last longer and potentially reduce the muscle loss that naturally comes with aging. (2) Chiropractic Solutions can lead you to stronger quads!

COORDINATE KNEES AND LIMBS

Ever heard of patellofemoral pain syndrome? It’s a term for a most common musculoskeletal disorder of unusual motor coordination of the limbs which loads the knees unequally, putting them at risk of pain. (3) Knowing this helps your San Jose chiropractor guide treatment and exercise to help coordinate motion. One approach toward improvement is resistance training whose effectiveness can really be noticed in hopping. Researchers found that hopping requires strong ankles and knees that work together well. Resistance training improves strength and coordination giving rise to gait and knee/ankle benefits. (4) Don’t let the child in you start hopping just yet! Check with your San Jose chiropractor first!
