The Spinal Connections: Apple Country Chiropractic 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 newer studies, the connection between spinal manipulation and the relief of lower limb pain and weakness  and imbalance are investigated. Apple Country Chiropractic has noticed such relief. The research adds to the talk with such Williamson chiropractic patients that there’s hope for their condition.

LOWER LIMB STRENGTH IMPROVEMENT

Williamson chiropractic patients seek care at Apple Country Chiropractic with usually one pain issue and don’t even notice other issues until we find them together during the spinal examination. We are often detectives together! The chiropractic examination can discover clues to the condition at hand, clues that often are sore or weak and, thankfully, also calm with chiropractic treatment. Lower limb weakness is manytimes overlooked by back and leg pain patients. Pain is the attention-getter. One study reported that a single spinal manipulation improved muscle strength (for 30 minutes) and corticospinal excitability (for an hour) to ankle plantar flexor muscles in Taekwondo athletes. (1) Another paper of spinal manipulation’s effect on lower limb strength of healthy people showed immediate increase 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 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 Apple Country Chiropractic have enjoyed just such improvement!

LOWER LIMB IMBALANCE IMPROVEMENT

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