Food is said to be the best medicine but, exercise is better. Our chiropractors and physiotherapist always tell our patients that an “ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure.” While this statement is true in any condition, it is of even greater importance when it comes to your knees. Therefore, we evaluate every knee pain patient carefully before giving them our knee pain exercises.

Our knee pain exercise and knee pain treatment protocols are rendered to stabilize the knee as a whole. Our exercise programs target the knee joint, knee ligaments & the menisci (medical and later meniscus) In other words, the treatments and exercise rehabilitation you get from us for your knees will help improve every tissue in your knee.

Treatments will always accompany specific knee exercises. Hence, the care you get from a Chiropractic Specialty Center® will always be 100% holistic. Meaning we will treat every aspect of your condition. Comprehensive treatment of knee pain is not complete until you start a focused knee rehabilitation program.

Knee Rehabilitation Coupled With Targeted Knee Pain Treatment

Knees are major weight-bearing joints. Therefore, healthy knees are central to having and maintaining an active and healthy life. To have a robust and healthy knee, you will need to strengthen the knee joint muscles actively. Strengthening your knee muscles will protect your knees from injury by decreasing the stresses placed on your knees. So, the key to exercise is doing them regularly with proper form and technique after a warm-up. Our advanced methods of chiropractic treatment and physiotherapy treatment of knee pain are better.

During knee pain exercises, you will need to be mindful not to bend your legs to a point where knees stick out past your toes. If this happens, the knees will be under increased stress. Activities and exercises such as squats, weight training, or step aerobics need to follow this rule.

Knee Pain Workouts To Avoid

In addition to the “Do‘s” for the knees, some “Don‘ts,” which are perhaps even more important. Below is a list of knee pain exercises to avoid, especially if you have had arthroscopic surgery or total knee replacement surgery:

  • Avoid lunging exercises
  • Avoid traditional (full) Hurdler’s stretches.
  • Avoid full-arc knee extension exercises.
  • Avoid deep Squats (even if your knees do not go past your toes)

The rules of “Do‘s” are suitable for all to follow. But those with knee pain need to be careful not to cause more harm.

If you have knee pain, you are not alone. Knee pain and malfunction are all too common. In the United States of America, there are at least 50 million that suffer from this. If you have knee pain, you will need to be sure that the exercises you are doing will not aggravate your condition. One way to achieve this is by having your health condition evaluated by an expert. Please consult one of our chiropractors of CSC, physiotherapists of CSC, or your clinician before initiating any exercise programs.

Knee exercises for those with pain must be condition-specific. Condition-specific workouts and focused rehabilitation have the most significant beneficial impact. Furthermore, when your knee exercises are condition-specific, the risk of injuring or hurting your knees decreases significantly.

When it comes to therapy, treatment, or exercises, the number one rule is that they should be painless! Painful therapies, treatment & exercises will only lead to more damage. Don’t fall in the trap of no-pain, no-gain! You gain more when the cure is not painful!

“No Pain More Gain” You Don‘t Have To Hurt More To Get Better!
