Ashburn Knee Pain Relief Tips Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn

Knees and knee pain. Boy, do we work our knees…or at least we should! Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn hears about painful knees nearly as much as we hear about painful backs and necks! Ashburn knee pain sufferers know the symptoms and wonder “What can I do about this knee pain?” Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn 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 Ashburn knee pain, moving may seem like it will only aggravate it more. Many doctors like yours at Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn and researchers hear that! That’s fear. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn gets it! Physical activity is good for your knee’s overall health though. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn will be right beside you to calm your fear and be sure movement is beneficial! Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn also reminds you that a sedentary lifestyle may cause more issues and lead to more joint health troubles. A study that tracked people for 8 years revealed 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 state that long-term strenuous activity participation did not raise the incidence of knee osteoarthritis. That is good news! They report cautiously that people who were older, have a higher 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! Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn is a fabulous Ashburn 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 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 help the older folks develop that muscle so it can last longer and potentially decrease the muscle loss that naturally comes with aging. (2) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn can lead you to stronger quads!

COORDINATE KNEES AND LIMBS

Have you heard of patellofemoral pain syndrome? It’s a term for a most common musculoskeletal disorder of atypical motor coordination of the limbs that stresses the knees unequally, raising their risk of pain. (3) Understanding this helps your Ashburn 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 improves strength and coordination resulting in gait and knee/ankle benefits. (4) Don’t let the child in you start hopping just yet! Check with your Ashburn chiropractor first!
