The Spinal Connections: Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center 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 explored. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center has noticed such relief. The research adds to the discussion with such Paramus chiropractic patients that there’s hope for their condition.

LOWER LIMB STRENGTH IMPROVEMENT

Paramus chiropractic patients visit Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center with usually one pain issue and do not even note other issues until we find them together via the spinal examination. We are manytimes detectives together! The chiropractic exam can uncover clues to the condition at hand, clues that often are painful or weak and, thankfully, also resolve with chiropractic treatment. Lower limb weakness is manytimes overlooked by back and leg pain patients. Pain is the attention-getter. One study reported 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 study of spinal manipulation’s effect on lower limb strength of healthy people displayed immediate increase in muscle strength after just one treatment. The chiropractic spinal manipulation treatment helps relieve the pain and improve the lower limb weakness. The effect is reported to be immediate with just one spinal manipulation. For patients with hip and knee weakness yet otherwise healthy, the strength improvement is even bigger. (2) Patients at Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center have noticed just such improvement!

LOWER LIMB IMBALANCE IMPROVEMENT

Other Paramus chiropractic patients with limb imbalances in whom one leg is seemingly stronger than the other have found relief with their Paramus chiropractic spinal manipulation, also. They may realize they have it or don’t 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 got better compared to placebo treatment. These strength improvements were recorded after just one lumbar spine manipulation session. (3) Spinal mobilization boosted hip flexor strength and performance in asymptomatic young adults. (4) These are positive outcomes for our Paramus chiropractic patients!
