Knees and knee pain. Boy, do we work our knees…or at least
we should! Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic hears about painful knees nearly
as much as we hear about painful backs and necks! Montreal
knee pain sufferers know the symptoms and feel the same: “I don’t want knee pain!” Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic
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 Montreal knee pain, it may seem that moving the painful knee will only aggravate
it more. Many doctors like yours at Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic and researchers have
heard that! That’s fear. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic understands!
Physical activity is good for your knee’s overall health though. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic
will work with you to calm your fear and be sure movement helps! Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic 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 related to
knee osteoarthritis and low to moderate level of energetic
physical activity is protective against knee osteoarthritis. If you sit a great
deal, exercise, too. It is beneficial. 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 larger BMI,
more severe pain, weaker quadriceps and depression were not as
likely to do any strenuous activities. (1) If that is you, let’s get past these issues for your knees’ sake! Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic
is a fabulous Montreal 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 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 develop
that muscle so it can persist longer and potentially reduce
the muscle loss that naturally comes with aging. (2)
Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic can guide you toward stronger quads!
COORDINATE KNEES AND LIMBS
Ever heard of patellofemoral pain syndrome? It’s a term for a very common musculoskeletal
disorder that finds atypical motor coordination of the limbs
which loads the knees unevenly, raising
their risk of pain. (3) Knowing this
helps your Montreal chiropractor lead treatment
and exercise to assist in coordinating motion. One approach
to improving motion is resistance training whose
effectiveness can really be noticed in hopping. Researchers
found that hopping requires strong ankles and knees that work together
well. Resistance training increases strength and coordination giving rise to gait and knee/ankle benefits.

above, chiropractic treatment of the knee based on principles of Cox® Technic
