The Spinal Connections: Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office 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  as well as imbalance are explored. Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office has noticed such relief. The research contributes to the discussion with such Groton chiropractic patients that there is hope for their condition.

LOWER LIMB STRENGTH IMPROVEMENT

Groton chiropractic patients come to Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office with typically one pain issue and don’t even note other issues until we uncover them together via the spinal examination. We are often detectives together! The chiropractic exam can uncover clues to the condition at hand, clues that frequently are painful or weak and, thankfully, also resolve 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 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 session. The chiropractic spinal manipulation treatment helps relieve the pain and improve the lower limb weakness. The effect is found 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 Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office have reported just such improvement!

LOWER LIMB IMBALANCE IMPROVEMENT

Other Groton chiropractic patients with limb imbalances in whom one leg is seemingly stronger than the other have found relief with their Groton chiropractic spinal manipulation, too. They may know 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 improved 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 results for our Groton chiropractic patients!
