The Spinal Connections: The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR Offers 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 recent published articles, the connection between spinal manipulation and the relief of lower limb pain and weakness  in addition to imbalance are investigated. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR has seen such relief. The research contributes to the talk with such Colorado Springs chiropractic patients that there’s hope for their condition.

LOWER LIMB STRENGTH IMPROVEMENT

Colorado Springs chiropractic patients visit The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR with usually one pain issue and do not even notice other issues until we find them together during the spinal examination. We are often 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 manytimes overlooked 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 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 experience hip and knee weakness yet otherwise healthy, the strength improvement is even bigger. (2) Patients at The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR have enjoyed just such improvement!

LOWER LIMB IMBALANCE IMPROVEMENT

Other Colorado Springs chiropractic patients with limb imbalances for whom one leg is seemingly stronger than the other have noticed relief with their Colorado Springs chiropractic spinal manipulation, too. They may realize they have it or do not realize it until we complete 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 got better compared to placebo treatment. These strength improvements were recorded 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 Colorado Springs chiropractic patients!
