The Spinal Connections: Hollstrom & Associates Inc 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 recent studies, the connection between spinal manipulation and the relief of lower limb pain and weakness  and imbalance are investigated. Hollstrom & Associates Inc has noticed such relief. The research contributes to the talk with such Largo chiropractic patients that there’s hope for their condition.

LOWER LIMB STRENGTH IMPROVEMENT

Largo chiropractic patients seek care at Hollstrom & Associates Inc with usually one pain issue and do not even note other issues until we find them together via the spinal exam. We are often detectives together! The chiropractic exam can discover clues to the condition at hand, clues that often are painful 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 reported 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 boost 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 reported 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 Hollstrom & Associates Inc have reported just such improvement!

LOWER LIMB IMBALANCE IMPROVEMENT

Other Largo chiropractic patients with limb imbalances in whom one leg is seemingly stronger than the other have noticed relief with their Largo chiropractic spinal manipulation, too. They may know they have it or don’t realize it until we go through the exam together. Once found, limb strength imbalances of a minimum of 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 enhanced hip flexor strength and performance in asymptomatic young adults. (4) These are positive results for our Largo chiropractic patients!
