We treat a large number of patients with back pain in our Henderson, NV office, and Dr. Russell and Dr. Janda has noticed that many cases of back pain originate in the sacroiliac (SI) joint. Investigation shows that about 25% of all back pain originates in the SI joint, and now fresh research confirms what we have observed in our clinic: chiropractic is an effective way to treat this pain.
In the study published in the Journal of Bodywork and Movement Therapies, 32 women who suffered from sacroiliac joint syndrome were split into two groups and asked to take part in one of two treatment therapies. one group was given a chiropractic adjustment only at the sacroiliac joint, and the other group had an adjustment to the sacroiliac joint and the lumbar spine.
Specialists found greater improvements in both pain and movement immediately after treatment, two days later, and 30 days later for the individuals who received high-velocity low-amplitude manipulation to both the sacroiliac joint and the lumbar spine. This demonstrates that chiropractic therapy applied to these two areas offers both short term and long term benefits for sacroiliac joint pain sufferers even with just one treatment session.
So, if you are having trouble with sacroiliac joint pain, or live with back and leg pain and would like to find out whether your sacroiliac joint is the source, a visit to our Henderson, NV office could be the first and best step towards feeling better.
