The Spinal Connections: Amelia Chiropractic 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 recent studies, the connection between spinal manipulation and the relief of lower limb pain and weakness  as well as imbalance are explored. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic has noticed such relief. The research contributes to the discussion with such Fernandina Beach chiropractic patients that there is hope for their condition.

LOWER LIMB STRENGTH IMPROVEMENT

Fernandina Beach chiropractic patients come to Amelia Chiropractic Clinic with usually one pain issue and do not even note other issues until we uncover them together via the spinal exam. We are manytimes detectives together! The chiropractic exam can uncover clues to the condition at hand, clues that often are sore or weak and, thankfully, also resolve with chiropractic treatment. Lower limb weakness is often unnoticed by back and leg pain patients. Pain is the attention-getter. One study stated that a single spinal manipulation improved muscle strength (for a half hour) and corticospinal excitability (for an hour) to ankle plantar flexor muscles in Taekwondo athletes. (1) Another paper of spinal manipulation’s effect on lower limb strength of healthy people displayed immediate boost 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 only one spinal manipulation. For patients who experience hip and knee weakness yet otherwise healthy, the strength improvement is even bigger. (2) Patients at Amelia Chiropractic Clinic have noticed just such improvement!

LOWER LIMB IMBALANCE IMPROVEMENT

Other Fernandina Beach chiropractic patients with limb imbalances for whom one leg is seemingly stronger than the other have noticed relief with their Fernandina Beach chiropractic spinal manipulation, too. They may know they have it or do not realize it until we go through the exam jointly. Once discovered, limb strength imbalances of at least 15% in hip flexion, extension, abduction or knee flexion treated with spinal manipulation improved compared to placebo treatment. These strength improvements were seen after just one lumbar spine manipulation session. (3) Spinal mobilization improved hip flexor strength and performance in asymptomatic young adults. (4) These are positive outcomes for our Fernandina Beach chiropractic patients!
