Largo Knee Pain Relief Tips Hollstrom & Associates Inc

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

EXERCISE PROTECTS THE KNEES

If you suffer with Largo knee pain, it may seem that moving the painful knee will only aggravate it more. Many doctors like yours at Hollstrom & Associates Inc and researchers hear that! That is fear. Hollstrom & Associates Inc gets it! Physical activity is good for your knee’s overall health though. Hollstrom & Associates Inc will be right beside you to calm your fear and make sure movement helps! Hollstrom & Associates Inc also reminds you that a sedentary lifestyle may cause more issues and likely end in more joint health problems. A study that followed people for 8 years revealed that constant 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 is beneficial. 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! Hollstrom & Associates Inc is a great Largo 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 succeed! Maximal voluntary contraction of the knee extensors in older folks is greater than that in younger people. Exercise may help the older folks build that muscle so it can last longer and potentially decrease the muscle loss that normally comes with aging. (2) Hollstrom & Associates Inc 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 that finds atypical motor coordination of the limbs which loads the knees unequally, putting them at risk of pain. (3) Understanding this helps your Largo chiropractor guide treatment and exercise to help coordinate motion. One approach to improving motion is resistance training whose effectiveness can particularly be noted in hopping. Researchers found that hopping requires strong ankles and knees that work together 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 Largo chiropractor first!
