The Spinal Connections: Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre 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 recent studies, the connection between spinal manipulation and the relief of lower limb pain and weakness  and imbalance are explored. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre has noticed such relief. The research adds to the discussion with such Toronto chiropractic patients that there is hope for their condition.

LOWER LIMB STRENGTH IMPROVEMENT

Toronto chiropractic patients visit Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre with usually one pain issue and don’t even notice other issues until we find them together during the spinal examination. We are often detectives together! The chiropractic examination can uncover clues to the condition at hand, clues that often are painful 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 an hour) to ankle plantar flexor muscles in Taekwondo athletes. (1) Another paper 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 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 Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre have reported just such improvement!

LOWER LIMB IMBALANCE IMPROVEMENT

Other Toronto chiropractic patients with limb imbalances in whom one leg is seemingly stronger than the other have found relief with their Toronto chiropractic spinal manipulation, too. They may know they have it or don’t realize it until we complete the exam jointly. 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 recorded after just one lumbar spine manipulation session. (3) Spinal mobilization improved hip flexor strength and performance in asymptomatic young adults. (4) These are positive outcomes for our Toronto chiropractic patients!
