We see a lot of people with back pain in our Henderson, NV office, and Dr. Russell and Dr. Janda finds that many cases of back pain stem from the sacroiliac (SI) joint. Research has demonstrated that around one quarter of all back pain originates in the SI joint, and now fresh research ratifies what we see in our clinic: chiropractic is an effective way to treat this issue.
In the study published in the Journal of Bodywork and Movement Therapies, thirty-two women who suffered from sacroiliac joint syndrome were split into two groups and asked to engage in one of two treatment therapies. The first group was given a chiropractic adjustment isolated to the sacroiliac joint, and the other group was given an adjustment to the sacroiliac joint and the lumbar spine.
Specialists noticed significantly more improvements in both pain and movement immediately after treatment, two days post-treatment, and 30 days later for the patients who received high-velocity low-amplitude manipulation to both the sacroiliac joint and the lumbar spine. This asserts that chiropractic therapy applied to these two areas offers both short term and continuing results for sacroiliac joint pain sufferers—even with only a single treatment round.
So, if you are dealing with sacroiliac joint pain, or have back and leg pain and are ready to see if your sacroiliac joint is the root, a consultation at our Henderson, NV office could be the first—and best—step towards recovery. Give our office a call today at (702) 990-2225.
