The Spinal Connections: Back And Neck Care Center Delivers 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 studies, the connection between spinal manipulation and the relief of lower limb pain and weakness  as well as imbalance are investigated. Back And Neck Care Center has seen such relief. The research adds to the talk with such Severna Park chiropractic patients that there is hope for their condition.

LOWER LIMB STRENGTH IMPROVEMENT

Severna Park chiropractic patients visit Back And Neck Care Center with typically one pain issue and do not even note other issues until we uncover them together during the spinal exam. We are often detectives together! The chiropractic examination can discover clues to the condition at hand, clues that often are painful or weak and, thankfully, also calm with chiropractic treatment. Lower limb weakness is often unnoticed by back and leg pain patients. Pain is the attention-getter. One report stated that a single spinal manipulation enhanced muscle strength (for a half hour) 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 boost 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 only one spinal manipulation. For patients who experience hip and knee weakness yet otherwise healthy, the strength improvement is even larger. (2) Patients at Back And Neck Care Center have reported just such improvement!

LOWER LIMB IMBALANCE IMPROVEMENT

Other Severna Park chiropractic patients with limb imbalances for whom one leg seems stronger than the other have found relief with their Severna Park chiropractic spinal manipulation, too. They may know they have it or do not realize it until we complete the exam jointly. 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 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 Severna Park chiropractic patients!
