The Spinal Connections: Moses Chiropractic 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 newer published articles, the connection between spinal manipulation and the relief of lower limb pain and weakness  as well as imbalance are investigated. Moses Chiropractic has noticed such relief. The research adds to the discussion with such West Palm Beach chiropractic patients that there’s hope for their condition.

LOWER LIMB STRENGTH IMPROVEMENT

West Palm Beach chiropractic patients come to Moses Chiropractic with usually one pain issue and do not even note other issues until we uncover them together during the spinal examination. We are often detectives together! The chiropractic examination 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 often disregarded by back and leg pain patients. Pain is the attention-getter. One report reported that a single spinal manipulation enhanced 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 reported to be immediate with just one spinal manipulation. For patients with hip and knee weakness yet otherwise healthy, the strength improvement is even bigger. (2) Patients at Moses Chiropractic have enjoyed just such improvement!

LOWER LIMB IMBALANCE IMPROVEMENT

Other West Palm Beach chiropractic patients with limb imbalances for whom one leg is seemingly stronger than the other have noticed relief with their West Palm Beach chiropractic spinal manipulation, too. They may know they have it or don’t realize it until we complete the exam jointly. Once found, 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 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 West Palm Beach chiropractic patients!
