The Spinal Connections: Pflugerville Wellness Center 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 new studies, the connection between spinal manipulation and the relief of lower limb pain and weakness  as well as imbalance are explored. Pflugerville Wellness Center has noticed such relief. The research adds to the discussion with such Pflugerville chiropractic patients that there is hope for their condition.

LOWER LIMB STRENGTH IMPROVEMENT

Pflugerville chiropractic patients seek care at Pflugerville Wellness Center with typically one pain issue and do not even notice other issues until we find them together during the spinal exam. 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 calm with chiropractic treatment. Lower limb weakness is manytimes unnoticed 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 60 minutes) 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 treatment. 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 bigger. (2) Patients at Pflugerville Wellness Center have noticed just such improvement!

LOWER LIMB IMBALANCE IMPROVEMENT

Other Pflugerville chiropractic patients with limb imbalances for whom one leg is seemingly stronger than the other have noticed relief with their Pflugerville chiropractic spinal manipulation, too. They may know they have it or don’t realize it until we go through the exam jointly. Once found, 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 noted 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 Pflugerville chiropractic patients!
