The Spinal Connections: Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation 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  and imbalance are explored. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation has noticed such relief. The research adds to the discussion with such Baton Rouge chiropractic patients that there is hope for their condition.

LOWER LIMB STRENGTH IMPROVEMENT

Baton Rouge chiropractic patients come to Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation with usually one pain issue and do not even note other issues until we uncover them together via the spinal exam. We are manytimes detectives together! The chiropractic exam can uncover clues to the condition at hand, clues that often 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 study stated that a single spinal manipulation enhanced muscle strength (for 30 minutes) 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 showed immediate boost in muscle strength after just one treatment. The chiropractic spinal manipulation treatment helps ease the pain and increase the lower limb weakness. The effect is found to be immediate with just one spinal manipulation. For patients who have hip and knee weakness yet otherwise healthy, the strength improvement is even bigger. (2) Patients at Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation have noticed just such improvement!

LOWER LIMB IMBALANCE IMPROVEMENT

Other Baton Rouge chiropractic patients with limb imbalances for whom one leg is seemingly stronger than the other have noticed relief with their Baton Rouge chiropractic spinal manipulation, also. They may realize they have it or don’t realize it until we complete the exam together. Once discovered, 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 boosted hip flexor strength and performance in asymptomatic young adults. (4) These are positive results for our Baton Rouge chiropractic patients!
