At Barton Chiropractic Clinic we see patients who experience back pain and injuries, as well as pain and injuries that occur in other areas of the body, like the arms and legs. Below we go over some of the common daily contributors to knee pain in particular.
Your Active Lifestyle
If you're a runner, you're putting a tremendous amount of pressure on your joints -- your knees and ankles in particular. Engaging in sports is also a sure-fire way to put extra wear and tear on your body. That's why your rehabilitation and recovery plan should be just as intensive. Chiropractic care is a perfect antidote to the pressure you put on your body on a daily basis.
Your Lack of Active Recovery
On your off days, if you're like most people, maybe you give yourself a pass to sit around and watch Netflix. Try to resist that urge and get outside, maybe go on a hike or engage in some outdoor yoga. Your joints will thank you for taking it easy, but you'll still be doing something good for your body.
Improper Sitting and Lifting
Many times when we sit, stand, or lift heavy objects we put the wrong amount of pressure on our knees and do damage by putting them in distorted positions. It's best to practice good posture and always practice good lifting technique for countermeasure.
