Vancouver Knee Pain Relief Tips Vancouver Disc Centers

Knees and knee pain. Boy, do we work our knees…or at least we should! Vancouver Disc Centers hears about painful knees almost as often as we hear about painful backs and necks! Vancouver knee pain sufferers know the symptoms and feel the same: “I do not want knee pain!” Vancouver Disc Centers has some interesting new research on exercise, chiropractic care, and nutrition to keep knee pain in check.

EXERCISE PROTECTS THE KNEES

If you suffer with Vancouver knee pain, moving may seem like it will only aggravate it more. Many doctors like yours at Vancouver Disc Centers and researchers hear that! That is fear. Vancouver Disc Centers understands! Physical activity is good for your knee’s overall health though. Vancouver Disc Centers will work with you to calm your fear and ensure movement helps! Vancouver Disc Centers 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 constant 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 is beneficial. The authors specifically report that long-term strenuous activity participation did not raise the incidence of knee osteoarthritis. That’s 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! Vancouver Disc Centers is a great Vancouver 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 examined younger and older folks doing 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 last longer and potentially reduce the muscle loss that normally comes with aging. (2) Vancouver Disc Centers 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 of atypical motor coordination of the limbs which stresses the knees unevenly, putting them at risk of pain. (3) Knowing this helps your Vancouver chiropractor lead treatment and exercise to assist in coordinating motion. One approach toward improvement 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 improves strength and coordination benefiting knees and ankles. (4) Don’t let the child in you start hopping just yet! Talk with your Vancouver chiropractor first!

TREAT AND SUPPLEMENT

The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management incorporates exercise, chiropractic treatment, and supplementation. Much the same can be applied to the care of knees! Exercise as defined above, chiropractic treatment of the knee based on principles of Cox® Technic for the spine adapted by Dr. Luigi Albano, and supplementation with chondroitin sulfate and glucosamine sulfate benefit knee cartilage which is similar to disc cartilage. Vancouver Disc Centers will establish a chiropractic treatment plan for your knees no matter their age!
