West Des Moines Knee Pain Relief Tips Executive Chiropractic of Iowa

Knees and knee pain. Boy, do we work our knees…or at least we should! Executive Chiropractic of Iowa hears about painful knees almost as much as we hear about painful backs and necks! West Des Moines knee pain sufferers know the symptoms and feel the same: “I don’t want knee pain!” Executive Chiropractic of Iowa has some enlightening new research on exercise, chiropractic care, and nutrition to keep knee pain in check.


If you have West Des Moines knee pain, moving may seem like it will only aggravate it more. Many doctors like yours at Executive Chiropractic of Iowa and researchers have heard that! That is fear. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa gets it! Physical activity is good for your knee’s overall health though. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa will work with you to calm your fear and be sure movement is beneficial! Executive Chiropractic of Iowa also will tell you again that a sedentary lifestyle may cause more issues and lead to more joint health troubles. A study that followed people for 8 years revealed that constant sitting was not related to knee osteoarthritis while low to moderate level of active 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 did not increase the incidence of knee osteoarthritis. That’s good news! They write cautiously that people who were older, have a greater 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! Executive Chiropractic of Iowa is a great West Des Moines health partner!


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 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 reduce the muscle loss that normally comes with aging. (2) Executive Chiropractic of Iowa can lead you to stronger quads!


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 unequally, raising their risk of pain. (3) Knowing this helps your West Des Moines chiropractor direct 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 demands strong ankles and knees that interact well. Resistance training increases strength and coordination benefiting knees and ankles. (4) Do not let the child in you hop away just yet! Chat with your West Des Moines chiropractor first!
