Oxford Knee Pain Relief Tips Satterwhite Chiropractic

Knees and knee pain. Boy, do we work our knees…or at least we should! Satterwhite Chiropractic hears about painful knees almost as much as we hear about painful backs and necks! Oxford knee pain sufferers know the symptoms and feel the same: “I don’t want knee pain!” Satterwhite Chiropractic 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 Oxford knee pain, it may seem that moving the painful knee will only aggravate it more. Many doctors like yours at Satterwhite Chiropractic and researchers have heard that! That’s fear. Satterwhite Chiropractic gets it! Physical activity is good for your knee’s overall health though. Satterwhite Chiropractic will work with you to calm your fear and ensure movement is beneficial! Satterwhite Chiropractic also reminds you that a sedentary lifestyle may cause more issues and likely end in more joint health problems. A study that tracked people for 8 years revealed that constant sitting was not related to knee osteoarthritis and low to moderate level of strenuous physical activity is protective against knee osteoarthritis. If you sit a great deal, exercise, too. It is beneficial. The authors specifically report that long-term strenuous activity participation didn’t raise the incidence of knee osteoarthritis. That is good news! They write cautiously that people who were older, have a higher 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! Satterwhite Chiropractic is a great Oxford 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 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 build that muscle so it can persist longer and potentially reduce the muscle loss that normally comes with aging. (2) Satterwhite Chiropractic can guide you toward stronger quads!

COORDINATE KNEES AND LIMBS

Ever heard of patellofemoral pain syndrome? It is a name for a most common musculoskeletal disorder that finds unusual motor coordination of the limbs that loads the knees unevenly, raising their risk of pain. (3) Knowing this helps your Oxford chiropractor lead treatment and exercise to help coordinate motion. One approach toward improvement is resistance training whose effectiveness can particularly be noticed in hopping. Researchers found that hopping demands strong ankles and knees that work together 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 Oxford chiropractor first!

TREAT AND SUPPLEMENT

The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management involves exercise, chiropractic treatment, and supplementation. Much the same can be done for knees! Exercise as discussed 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 help knee cartilage which is similar to disc cartilage. Satterwhite Chiropractic will set up a chiropractic treatment plan for your knees regardless of their age!
