We see a lot of people with back pain in our Henderson, NV office, and Dr. Russell and Dr. Janda has noticed that many cases of back pain stem from the sacroiliac (SI) joint. Research has demonstrated that around one quarter of all back pain begins in the SI joint, and now new research ratifies what we have noticed in our clinic: chiropractic is an effective approach to treating this problem.
In the study released in the Journal of Bodywork and Movement Therapies, thirty-two women who suffered from sacroiliac joint dysfunction were separated into two groups and asked to take part in one of two treatment therapies. one group received a chiropractic adjustment only at the sacroiliac joint, and the second group was given an adjustment to the sacroiliac joint as well as the lumbar spine.
Specialists noticed significantly more improvements in both pain and movement immediately following treatment, two days later, and 30 days after for the individuals who had been given high-velocity low-amplitude manipulation to both the sacroiliac joint and the lumbar spine. This asserts that chiropractic treatment administered in these two areas offers both prompt and continuing benefits for sacroiliac joint pain sufferers—even with just a single treatment session.
So, if you are having trouble with sacroiliac joint pain, or cope with back and leg pain and would like to see whether your sacroiliac joint is the cause, a visit to our Henderson, NV office could be the first—and best—step towards feeling better. Give our office a call today at (702) 990-2225.
