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 adds
to the discussion with such Pensacola chiropractic patients
that there’s hope for their condition.
LOWER LIMB STRENGTH IMPROVEMENT
Pensacola chiropractic patients come
to 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 often
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 bigger. (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
