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

LOWER LIMB STRENGTH IMPROVEMENT

Murfreesboro chiropractic patients come to Most Chiropractic Clinic with usually one pain issue and do not even note other issues until we find them together during the spinal exam. We are often detectives together! The chiropractic exam can uncover clues to the condition at hand, clues that often 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 an hour) to ankle plantar flexor muscles in Taekwondo athletes. (1) Another study of spinal manipulation’s effect on lower limb strength of healthy people displayed immediate boost in muscle strength after just one session. The chiropractic spinal manipulation treatment helps ease the pain and increase the lower limb weakness. The effect is reported to be immediate with just one spinal manipulation. For patients who have hip and knee weakness yet otherwise healthy, the strength improvement is even bigger. (2) Patients at Most Chiropractic Clinic have noticed just such improvement!

LOWER LIMB IMBALANCE IMPROVEMENT

Other Murfreesboro chiropractic patients with limb imbalances for whom one leg is seemingly stronger than the other have noticed relief with their Murfreesboro chiropractic spinal manipulation, too. 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 cared for with spinal manipulation got better 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 results for our Murfreesboro chiropractic patients!
