Lumbar Pain and the SI Joint

We see a good number of people with back pain in our Henderson, NV office, and Dr. Russell and Dr. Janda has noticed that many cases of back pain start in the sacroiliac (SI) joint. Research shows that around 25% of all back pain begins in the SI joint, and now new research confirms what we have noticed in our clinic: chiropractic is an effective way to treat this problem.

Research Supports Chiropractic Treatment Helps Increase Movement in the SI Joint

In the study released in the Journal of Bodywork and Movement Therapies, 32 women who suffered from sacroiliac joint syndrome were separated into two groups and asked to take part in one of two treatment therapies. one group went through a chiropractic adjustment only at the sacroiliac joint, and the second group had an adjustment to the sacroiliac joint and the lumbar spine.

Researchers found greater improvements in both pain and movement immediately after treatment, two days later, and 30 days later for the group who received high-velocity low-amplitude manipulation to both the sacroiliac joint and the lumbar spine. This asserts that chiropractic manipulation administered in these two areas offers both prompt and continuing results for sacroiliac joint pain sufferers even with just a single treatment round.

So, if you are having trouble with sacroiliac joint pain, or live with back and leg pain and are ready to find out whether your sacroiliac joint is the cause, a visit to our Henderson, NV office could be the first and best step towards recovery. Give our office a call today at (702) 990-2225.
