Malverne Knee Pain Relief Tips Malverne Health & Wellness

Knees and knee pain. Boy, do we work our knees…or at least we should! Malverne Health & Wellness hears about painful knees nearly as much as we hear about painful backs and necks! Malverne knee pain sufferers know the symptoms and wonder “What can I do about this knee pain?” Malverne Health & Wellness has some enlightening new research on exercise, chiropractic care, and nutrition to keep knee pain under control.

EXERCISE PROTECTS THE KNEES

If you have Malverne knee pain, it may seem that moving the painful knee will only aggravate it more. Many doctors like yours at Malverne Health & Wellness and researchers have heard that! That’s fear. Malverne Health & Wellness gets it! Physical activity is good for your knee’s overall health though. Malverne Health & Wellness will be right beside you to calm your fear and make sure movement helps! Malverne Health & Wellness also will tell you again 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 associated with knee osteoarthritis while 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 did not increase the incidence of knee osteoarthritis. That is good news! They write 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! Malverne Health & Wellness is a fabulous Malverne 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 help the older folks develop that muscle so it can last longer and potentially decrease the muscle loss that normally comes with aging. (2) Malverne Health & Wellness can lead you to stronger quads!

COORDINATE KNEES AND LIMBS

Ever heard of patellofemoral pain syndrome? It’s a term for a very common musculoskeletal disorder of unusual motor coordination of the limbs that loads the knees unevenly, raising their risk of pain. (3) Understanding this helps your Malverne chiropractor guide treatment and exercise to assist in coordinating motion. One way to improving motion is resistance training whose effectiveness can really be noted in hopping. Researchers found that hopping demands strong ankles and knees that work together well. Resistance training improves strength and coordination benefiting knees and ankles. (4) Do not let the child in you start hopping just yet! Check with your Malverne chiropractor first!
