Toronto Knee Pain Relief Tips Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre

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

EXERCISE PROTECTS THE KNEES

If you have Toronto knee pain, moving may seem like it will only aggravate it more. Many doctors like yours at Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre and researchers have heard that! That is fear. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre understands! Physical activity is good for your knee’s overall health though. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre will work with you to calm your fear and be sure movement helps! Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre also will tell you again that a sedentary lifestyle may cause more issues and likely end in more joint health problems. A study that followed people for 8 years found that constant sitting was not associated with knee osteoarthritis and low to moderate level of active physical activity is protective against knee osteoarthritis. If you sit a great deal, exercise, too. It helps. The authors specifically state that long-term strenuous activity participation didn’t raise the incidence of knee osteoarthritis. That’s 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’s get past these issues for your knees’ sake! Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre is a great Toronto health partner!

QUADRICEPS HELPS THE KNEES

And talk about good partners, quads are to knees! Strong quadriceps benefit knees. Exercising the quadriceps is wise! A study compared 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 higher than that in younger people. Exercise may help the older folks strengthen that muscle so it can last longer and potentially decrease the muscle loss that naturally comes with aging. (2) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre 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 that stresses the knees unevenly, raising their risk of pain. (3) Knowing this helps your Toronto chiropractor direct treatment and exercise to help coordinate motion. One way to improving motion is resistance training whose effectiveness can really be noticed in hopping. Researchers found that hopping demands strong ankles and knees that interact well. Resistance training improves strength and coordination benefiting knees and ankles. (4) Do not let the child in you hop away just yet! Chat with your Toronto chiropractor first!
