The Spinal Connections: Spinal Care Clinic 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 explored. Spinal Care Clinic has seen such relief. The research adds to the talk with such Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic patients that there is hope for their condition.

LOWER LIMB STRENGTH IMPROVEMENT

Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic patients seek care at Spinal Care Clinic with usually one pain issue and do not even notice other issues until we uncover them together via the spinal examination. We are often detectives together! The chiropractic exam can uncover clues to the condition at hand, clues that frequently are painful or weak and, thankfully, also calm with chiropractic treatment. Lower limb weakness is often overlooked by back and leg pain patients. Pain is the attention-getter. One study reported that a single spinal manipulation improved 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 increase in muscle strength after just one treatment. The chiropractic spinal manipulation treatment helps ease the pain and improve the lower limb weakness. The effect is found to be immediate with just one spinal manipulation. For patients who experience hip and knee weakness yet otherwise healthy, the strength improvement is even larger. (2) Patients at Spinal Care Clinic have enjoyed just such improvement!

LOWER LIMB IMBALANCE IMPROVEMENT

Other Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic patients with limb imbalances in whom one leg is seemingly stronger than the other have noticed relief with their Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic spinal manipulation, too. They may know they have it or don’t realize it until we complete the exam jointly. Once discovered, 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 noted 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 Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic patients!
