The Spinal Connections: Chiropractic Care Delivers 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 newer published articles, the connection between spinal manipulation and the relief of lower limb pain and weakness  in addition to imbalance are explored. Chiropractic Care has seen such relief. The research contributes to the talk with such West Palm Beach chiropractic patients that there is hope for their condition.

LOWER LIMB STRENGTH IMPROVEMENT

West Palm Beach chiropractic patients come to Chiropractic Care with typically one pain issue and don’t even note other issues until we find them together during the spinal examination. We are often detectives together! The chiropractic examination can uncover clues to the condition at hand, clues that frequently are sore or weak and, thankfully, also calm with chiropractic treatment. Lower limb weakness is often disregarded by back and leg pain patients. Pain is the attention-getter. One study stated that a single spinal manipulation improved muscle strength (for 30 minutes) 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 ease the pain and improve the lower limb weakness. The effect is reported to be immediate with only one spinal manipulation. For patients with hip and knee weakness yet otherwise healthy, the strength improvement is even larger. (2) Patients at Chiropractic Care have reported just such improvement!

LOWER LIMB IMBALANCE IMPROVEMENT

Other West Palm Beach chiropractic patients with limb imbalances for whom one leg is seemingly stronger than the other have found relief with their West Palm Beach chiropractic spinal manipulation, also. They may realize they have it or do not realize it until we go through the exam jointly. Once discovered, limb strength imbalances of at least 15% in hip flexion, extension, abduction or knee flexion cared for with spinal manipulation got better compared to placebo treatment. These strength improvements were seen after just one lumbar spine manipulation session. (3) Spinal mobilization boosted hip flexor strength and performance in asymptomatic young adults. (4) These are positive results for our West Palm Beach chiropractic patients!
