The Spinal Connections: Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation Offers 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. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation has noticed such relief. The research adds to the talk with such Carrolltown chiropractic patients that there is hope for their condition.

LOWER LIMB STRENGTH IMPROVEMENT

Carrolltown chiropractic patients come to Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation with usually one pain issue and do not even notice other issues until we find them together via the spinal examination. We are manytimes detectives together! The chiropractic examination can uncover clues to the condition at hand, clues that frequently are sore or weak and, thankfully, also calm with chiropractic treatment. Lower limb weakness is often overlooked 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 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 treatment. 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 who have hip and knee weakness yet otherwise healthy, the strength improvement is even bigger. (2) Patients at Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation have noticed just such improvement!

LOWER LIMB IMBALANCE IMPROVEMENT

Other Carrolltown chiropractic patients with limb imbalances in whom one leg seems stronger than the other have noticed relief with their Carrolltown chiropractic spinal manipulation, too. They may know they have it or don’t 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 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 results for our Carrolltown chiropractic patients!
