The Spinal Connections: Chiropractic Solutions 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 investigated. Chiropractic Solutions has seen such relief. The research contributes to the talk with such San Jose chiropractic patients that there’s hope for their condition.

LOWER LIMB STRENGTH IMPROVEMENT

San Jose chiropractic patients visit Chiropractic Solutions with typically 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 examination can uncover clues to the condition at hand, clues that frequently are painful or weak and, thankfully, also resolve 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 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 showed immediate increase in muscle strength after just one session. 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 who have hip and knee weakness yet otherwise healthy, the strength improvement is even bigger. (2) Patients at Chiropractic Solutions have enjoyed just such improvement!

LOWER LIMB IMBALANCE IMPROVEMENT

Other San Jose chiropractic patients with limb imbalances in whom one leg seems stronger than the other have found relief with their San Jose chiropractic spinal manipulation, too. They may realize they have it or do not realize it until we go through 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 recorded after just one lumbar spine manipulation session. (3) Spinal mobilization boosted hip flexor strength and performance in asymptomatic young adults. (4) These are positive outcomes for our San Jose chiropractic patients!
