The Spinal Connections: Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC Delivers 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 published articles, the connection between spinal manipulation and the relief of lower limb pain and weakness  as well as imbalance are investigated. Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC has noticed such relief. The research contributes to the talk with such Fort Wayne chiropractic patients that there is hope for their condition.

LOWER LIMB STRENGTH IMPROVEMENT

Fort Wayne chiropractic patients visit Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC with usually one pain issue and don’t even notice other issues until we uncover them together during the spinal exam. We are often 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 manytimes disregarded by back and leg pain patients. Pain is the attention-getter. One report 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 showed immediate increase in muscle strength after just one session. The chiropractic spinal manipulation treatment helps ease 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 Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC have reported 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 realize they have it or do not 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 cared for with spinal manipulation got better compared to placebo treatment. These strength improvements were seen 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 Fort Wayne chiropractic patients!
