Sitka Knee Pain Relief Tips Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka

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


If you have Sitka knee pain, moving may seem like it will only aggravate it more. Many doctors like yours at Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka and researchers have heard that! That’s fear. Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka understands! Physical activity is good for your knee’s overall health though. Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka will work with you to calm your fear and ensure movement helps! Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka also will tell you again that a sedentary lifestyle may cause more issues and lead to more joint health problems. A study that followed people for 8 years found that persistent sitting was not associated with knee osteoarthritis and low to moderate level of energetic 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 didn’t 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 less likely to do any strenuous activities. (1) If that’s you, let’s get past these issues for your knees’ sake! Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka is a fabulous Sitka health partner!


And talk about good partners, quads are to knees! Strong quadriceps benefit knees. 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 higher than that in younger people. Exercise may benefit the older folks develop that muscle so it can last longer and potentially decrease the muscle loss that normally comes with aging. (2) Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka can lead you to stronger quads!


Have you heard of patellofemoral pain syndrome? It is a name for a very common musculoskeletal disorder that finds unusual motor coordination of the limbs that loads the knees unequally, putting them at risk of pain. (3) Understanding this helps your Sitka chiropractor guide treatment and exercise to help coordinate motion. One way toward improvement is resistance training whose effectiveness can really be noted in hopping. Researchers found that hopping requires strong ankles and knees that interact 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! Talk with your Sitka chiropractor first!
