Did you know Chiropractic Adjustments can increase muscle strength?

Updated: Jul 28, 2019



Recent research shows that chiropractic adjustments can increase muscle strength

What is a chiropractic adjustment? It is a HVLA thrust manoeuvre that is designed to correct spinal patho-neuro-biomechanics ( like nerve irritation)

It does this by increasing proteins like substance P (evans 2002)

The goal is to treat pain and dysfunction.

Reed, Pickar, Sozio and long in 2014 showed that manual therapy can increase mechanical pressure pain thresholds (decrease sensitivity)

Adjustments in the neck can result in unilateral and bilateral mechanical hypoalgesia (decrease sensitivity to painful stimuli)

Daligadu, Haavik, Yielder, Baarbe and Murphy (2013) Showed that muscle impairment occurs where there is a muscle complaint. They also showed that muscle impairment does NOT automatically resolve when the pain symptoms improve.

This leads to deficits in proprioception and motor control (rather than the pain itself) which is why sometimes we have chronic pain conditions

A 2018 study from Christriansen, Niazi, Holt, Nedergaard, Duehr, Allen, Marshall, Turker and Haarvik showed that voluntary contraction force lasted 30 minutes and corticospinal excitability increase persisted for at least 60 minutes.

Having increased motor function for a minimum of 60 minutes can lead to athletes having increased motor function, which had lead to ideas that maybe people with Parkinson’s and muscular Dystrophy could benefit. Further research on these patients is needed.
