The Spinal Connections: Pensacola Spinal Rehab 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 published articles, the connection between spinal manipulation and the relief of lower limb pain and weakness  in addition to imbalance are investigated. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center has noticed such relief. The research contributes to the talk with such Pensacola chiropractic patients that there’s hope for their condition.

LOWER LIMB STRENGTH IMPROVEMENT

Pensacola chiropractic patients visit Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center with usually one pain issue and don’t even notice other issues until we find them together during the spinal examination. We are manytimes detectives together! The chiropractic exam can discover clues to the condition at hand, clues that often are painful or weak and, thankfully, also resolve with chiropractic treatment. Lower limb weakness is often disregarded 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 60 minutes) 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 treatment. The chiropractic spinal manipulation treatment helps ease the pain and increase the lower limb weakness. The effect is found to be immediate with only one spinal manipulation. For patients with hip and knee weakness yet otherwise healthy, the strength improvement is even larger. (2) Patients at Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center have noticed just such improvement!

LOWER LIMB IMBALANCE IMPROVEMENT

Other Pensacola chiropractic patients with limb imbalances for whom one leg is seemingly stronger than the other have noticed relief with their Pensacola chiropractic spinal manipulation, also. They may know they have it or don’t realize it until we go through the exam together. 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 enhanced hip flexor strength and performance in asymptomatic young adults. (4) These are positive outcomes for our Pensacola chiropractic patients!
