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

LOWER LIMB STRENGTH IMPROVEMENT

Plainville chiropractic patients seek care at Layden Chiropractic with typically one pain issue and do not even note other issues until we find them together during the spinal exam. We are manytimes detectives together! The chiropractic exam can uncover clues to the condition at hand, clues that frequently 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 report reported that a single spinal manipulation improved 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 with hip and knee weakness yet otherwise healthy, the strength improvement is even larger. (2) Patients at Layden Chiropractic have enjoyed just such improvement!

LOWER LIMB IMBALANCE IMPROVEMENT

Other Plainville chiropractic patients with limb imbalances in whom one leg is seemingly stronger than the other have found relief with their Plainville chiropractic spinal manipulation, also. 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 treated with spinal manipulation got better compared to placebo treatment. These strength improvements were seen after just one lumbar spine manipulation session. (3) Spinal mobilization enhanced hip flexor strength and performance in asymptomatic young adults. (4) These are positive outcomes for our Plainville chiropractic patients!
