The Spinal Connections: Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic 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 newer studies, the connection between spinal manipulation and the relief of lower limb pain and weakness  as well as imbalance are explored. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic has seen such relief. The research contributes to the talk with such Montreal chiropractic patients that there is hope for their condition.

LOWER LIMB STRENGTH IMPROVEMENT

Montreal chiropractic patients seek care at Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic 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 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 report 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 found to be immediate with only one spinal manipulation. For patients with hip and knee weakness yet otherwise healthy, the strength improvement is even larger. (2) Patients at Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic have enjoyed just such improvement!

LOWER LIMB IMBALANCE IMPROVEMENT

Other Montreal chiropractic patients with limb imbalances for whom one leg is seemingly stronger than the other have noticed relief with their Montreal chiropractic spinal manipulation, too. They may realize they have it or do not realize it until we go through the exam jointly. Once discovered, limb strength imbalances of a minimum of 15% in hip flexion, extension, abduction or knee flexion treated with spinal manipulation improved compared to placebo treatment. These strength improvements were noted 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 Montreal chiropractic patients!
