Eugene Knee Pain Relief Tips Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic

Knees and knee pain. Boy, do we work our knees…or at least we should! Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic hears about painful knees nearly as often as we hear about painful backs and necks! Eugene knee pain sufferers know the symptoms and wonder “What can I do about this knee pain?” Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic has some interesting new research on exercise, chiropractic care, and nutrition to keep knee pain under control.


If you have Eugene knee pain, moving may seem like it will only aggravate it more. Many doctors like yours at Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic and researchers have heard that! That’s fear. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic understands! Physical activity is good for your knee’s overall health though. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic will work with you to calm your fear and ensure movement is beneficial! Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic 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 found that persistent 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 great deal, exercise, too. It is beneficial. The authors specifically report that long-term strenuous activity participation did not raise 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 us together get past these issues for your knees’ sake! Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic is a fabulous Eugene 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 doing resistance exercises via machine vs. elastic band. Both work! 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 decrease the muscle loss that normally comes with aging. (2) Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic can guide you toward stronger quads!


Ever heard of patellofemoral pain syndrome? It is a name for a most common musculoskeletal disorder that finds atypical motor coordination of the limbs which stresses the knees unevenly, putting them at risk of pain. (3) Knowing this helps your Eugene chiropractor direct treatment and exercise to help coordinate motion. One approach toward improvement is resistance training whose effectiveness can really be noticed in hopping. Researchers found that hopping requires strong ankles and knees that interact well. Resistance training improves strength and coordination giving rise to gait and knee/ankle benefits. (4) Don’t let the child in you start hopping just yet! Chat with your Eugene chiropractor first!
