The Spinal Connections: Minster Chiropractic Center 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 published articles, the connection between spinal manipulation and the relief of lower limb pain and weakness  in addition to imbalance are explored. Minster Chiropractic Center has noticed such relief. The research adds to the discussion with such Minster chiropractic patients that there is hope for their condition.

LOWER LIMB STRENGTH IMPROVEMENT

Minster chiropractic patients visit Minster Chiropractic Center with usually one pain issue and don’t even notice other issues until we uncover them together during the spinal exam. We are often detectives together! The chiropractic examination can uncover clues to the condition at hand, clues that often are painful or weak and, thankfully, also calm with chiropractic treatment. Lower limb weakness is manytimes disregarded by back and leg pain patients. Pain is the attention-getter. One report stated that a single spinal manipulation enhanced 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 displayed immediate increase in muscle strength after just one treatment. The chiropractic spinal manipulation treatment helps relieve 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 Minster Chiropractic Center have enjoyed just such improvement!

LOWER LIMB IMBALANCE IMPROVEMENT

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