The Spinal Connections: Aaron 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 published articles, the connection between spinal manipulation and the relief of lower limb pain and weakness  as well as imbalance are investigated. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic has seen such relief. The research adds to the discussion with such Fort Wayne chiropractic patients that there’s hope for their condition.

LOWER LIMB STRENGTH IMPROVEMENT

Fort Wayne chiropractic patients visit Aaron Chiropractic Clinic with typically one pain issue and don’t even note other issues until we find them together via the spinal examination. We are manytimes detectives together! The chiropractic exam can discover clues to the condition at hand, clues that frequently are painful or weak and, thankfully, also resolve with chiropractic treatment. Lower limb weakness is manytimes overlooked by back and leg pain patients. Pain is the attention-getter. One report reported 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 study of spinal manipulation’s effect on lower limb strength of healthy people showed immediate boost in muscle strength after just one treatment. The chiropractic spinal manipulation treatment helps relieve the pain and increase 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 larger. (2) Patients at Aaron Chiropractic Clinic have noticed just such improvement!

LOWER LIMB IMBALANCE IMPROVEMENT

Other Fort Wayne chiropractic patients with limb imbalances in whom one leg is seemingly stronger than the other have found relief with their Fort Wayne chiropractic spinal manipulation, too. They may know they have it or don’t realize it until we complete the exam jointly. Once discovered, limb strength imbalances of at least 15% in hip flexion, extension, abduction or knee flexion treated with spinal manipulation got better compared to placebo treatment. These strength improvements were noted after just one lumbar spine manipulation session. (3) Spinal mobilization boosted hip flexor strength and performance in asymptomatic young adults. (4) These are positive results for our Fort Wayne chiropractic patients!
