The Spinal Connections: Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. 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 newer studies, the connection between spinal manipulation and the relief of lower limb pain and weakness  and imbalance are explored. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. has noticed such relief. The research contributes to the discussion with such Auburn chiropractic patients that there’s hope for their condition.

LOWER LIMB STRENGTH IMPROVEMENT

Auburn chiropractic patients come to Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. with usually one pain issue and don’t even note other issues until we find them together during the spinal examination. We are manytimes detectives together! The chiropractic examination can discover clues to the condition at hand, clues that frequently are sore or weak and, thankfully, also calm with chiropractic treatment. Lower limb weakness is often 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 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 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 Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. have reported just such improvement!

LOWER LIMB IMBALANCE IMPROVEMENT

Other Auburn chiropractic patients with limb imbalances in whom one leg is seemingly stronger than the other have found relief with their Auburn chiropractic spinal manipulation, too. They may realize they have it or do not realize it until we complete 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 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 outcomes for our Auburn chiropractic patients!
