The Spinal Connections: Cross Chiropractic Center 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 new studies, the connection between spinal manipulation and the relief of lower limb pain and weakness  in addition to imbalance are explored. Cross Chiropractic Center has seen such relief. The research contributes to the discussion with such Sandy Springs chiropractic patients that there’s hope for their condition.

LOWER LIMB STRENGTH IMPROVEMENT

Sandy Springs chiropractic patients visit Cross Chiropractic Center with typically one pain issue and do not even note other issues until we uncover them together via the spinal examination. We are often detectives together! The chiropractic exam can discover clues to the condition at hand, clues that often 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 study stated 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 study of spinal manipulation’s effect on lower limb strength of healthy people displayed 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 found to be immediate with only one spinal manipulation. For patients who have hip and knee weakness yet otherwise healthy, the strength improvement is even larger. (2) Patients at Cross Chiropractic Center have enjoyed just such improvement!

LOWER LIMB IMBALANCE IMPROVEMENT

Other Sandy Springs chiropractic patients with limb imbalances for whom one leg is seemingly stronger than the other have found relief with their Sandy Springs chiropractic spinal manipulation, also. They may know they have it or do not 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 treated with spinal manipulation improved 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 outcomes for our Sandy Springs chiropractic patients!
