Living Life Without Knee Pain!
By Donna Stark
Having a headache is bad enough but at least you can still take a walk with one. Having a sore wrist kind of stinks too, but it doesn't have to stop you from going for a jog. But having a bum knee? Well, that can pretty much keep you from participating in any kind of activity, can't it? From not being able to engage in day-to-day activities to missing out on the things you love to do, it can destroy more than just your level of fitness. It can also put a quick end to the life you know.
Remedies for Knee Pain
If you want to get your life back but also want to avoid the never-ending rounds of doctor visits, the shelves full of medicine, and the potential for invasive procedures, take a look at the following suggestions from your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic.
Are you carrying around some extra pounds? Many of us are and unfortunately, it is causing a lot of unnecessary knee pain. Excess weight places increased stress and pressure on the joint. It can make sleeping uncomfortable, standing difficult, and walking downright impossible. It makes sense then, that a reduction in weight can lead to improvements in your overall well-being. Look for low-impact exercises to get yourself started, such as swimming and cycling, and take a look at where your diet needs to be adjusted.
Slow down with some tai chi! With its gentle, flowing movements, this form of exercise can help you increase strength, flexibility, and balance which, in turn, helps to stabilize the knee and reduce pain and stiffness. It is also a great way to reduce the stress and anxiety that often comes when you are living in pain.
Sometimes when knee pain is too overwhelming, you may need to seek outside help. Fortunately, your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic can help! The goal of chiropractic care is to restore normal function to your knee and to help you regain mobility and your quality of life. Here's how chiropractic care can help.
- Places your body's joint in proper alignment
- Reduces inflammation and pain
- Improves flexibility, range of motion, and balance
- Increases strength, endurance, and stability
