Chiropractic Spinal Manipulation Increases Quadriceps Strength

The chiropractic adjustment (also known as chiropractic spinal manipulation) has many very incredible and powerful results. One such documented result is an immediate increase in muscle strength. Researchers again documented an increase in skeletal muscle strength immediately following a chiropractic adjustment to the spine. When ten subjects received a chiropractic adjustment to their sacroiliac joint, researchers noted a significant improvement in their quadriceps muscle strength. The sacroiliac or SI joint is the joint formed between the tailbone (sacrum) and the large pelvic bone (ilium).
