Chiropractic Adjustments Increase Muscle Strength

New research has shown that chiropractic increases muscle strength. This research focuses on the low back area (lumbar spine) and shows that after chiropractic manipulation, the subjects had increased isokinetic strength. In short, chiropractic adjustments to the low back increases strength in the lower body!

Many professional athletes receive chiropractic care for this very reason, it increases strength, flexibility and performance.

“Chiropractic just makes you feel so much better. When I walk out of the clinic, I feel like I’m about 3 inches taller and everything is in place. And as long as I see the chiropractor, I feel like I’m one step ahead of the game” -Tom Brady

Research shows the lumbar spine is responsible for making the lower part of your body function, including the muscles. The nerves in the lower back also supply the bladder as well as the uterus/ovaries (females) or prostate (males). If you have been experiencing incontinence or fertility issues, your lower back may be the culprit.
