The Spinal Connections: New Roads Chiropractic Center Delivers Spinal Manipulation Which Shows Lower Limb Strength Improvement

It is 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  and imbalance are investigated. New Roads Chiropractic Center has seen such relief. The research contributes to the discussion with such New Roads chiropractic patients that there’s hope for their condition.

LOWER LIMB STRENGTH IMPROVEMENT

New Roads chiropractic patients seek care at New Roads Chiropractic Center with typically one pain issue and do not even notice other issues until we uncover them together via the spinal exam. We are manytimes detectives together! The chiropractic examination can uncover clues to the condition at hand, clues that frequently are sore or weak and, thankfully, also resolve with chiropractic treatment. Lower limb weakness is manytimes unnoticed by back and leg pain patients. Pain is the attention-getter. One study reported that a single spinal manipulation enhanced muscle strength (for 30 minutes) and corticospinal excitability (for 60 minutes) to ankle plantar flexor muscles in Taekwondo athletes. (1) Another paper of spinal manipulation’s effect on lower limb strength of healthy people displayed immediate increase 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 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 New Roads Chiropractic Center have noticed just such improvement!

LOWER LIMB IMBALANCE IMPROVEMENT

Other New Roads chiropractic patients with limb imbalances in whom one leg is seemingly stronger than the other have noticed relief with their New Roads chiropractic spinal manipulation, too. They may know they have it or do not realize it until we complete the exam jointly. Once found, limb strength imbalances of a minimum of 15% in hip flexion, extension, abduction or knee flexion treated with spinal manipulation improved compared to placebo treatment. These strength improvements were noted 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 New Roads chiropractic patients!
