The Spinal Connections: Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation Offers Spinal Manipulation Which Shows Lower Limb Strength Improvement

It’s all connected. The spine, the hips, the knees, the legs, the feet, the toes. In new studies, the connection between spinal manipulation and the relief of lower limb pain and weakness  in addition to imbalance are explored. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation has noticed such relief. The research contributes to the discussion with such Tonawanda chiropractic patients that there’s hope for their condition.

LOWER LIMB STRENGTH IMPROVEMENT

Tonawanda chiropractic patients seek care at Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation with typically one pain issue and do not even note other issues until we uncover them together during the spinal examination. We are manytimes detectives together! The chiropractic exam can discover clues to the condition at hand, clues that frequently are painful or weak and, thankfully, also resolve with chiropractic treatment. Lower limb weakness is often disregarded by back and leg pain patients. Pain is the attention-getter. One study reported that a single spinal manipulation enhanced muscle strength (for a half hour) and corticospinal excitability (for 60 minutes) to ankle plantar flexor muscles in Taekwondo athletes. (1) Another study of spinal manipulation’s effect on lower limb strength of healthy people showed immediate boost in muscle strength after just one session. The chiropractic spinal manipulation treatment helps relieve the pain and increase the lower limb weakness. The effect is found to be immediate with just one spinal manipulation. For patients with hip and knee weakness yet otherwise healthy, the strength improvement is even bigger. (2) Patients at Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation have enjoyed just such improvement!

LOWER LIMB IMBALANCE IMPROVEMENT

Other Tonawanda chiropractic patients with limb imbalances in whom one leg seems stronger than the other have noticed relief with their Tonawanda chiropractic spinal manipulation, also. They may realize they have it or don’t realize it until we complete the exam together. Once found, limb strength imbalances of at least 15% in hip flexion, extension, abduction or knee flexion treated with spinal manipulation got better compared to placebo treatment. These strength improvements were recorded after just one lumbar spine manipulation session. (3) Spinal mobilization boosted hip flexor strength and performance in asymptomatic young adults. (4) These are positive outcomes for our Tonawanda chiropractic patients!
