Back Pain and the Sacroiliac Joint

Back Pain and the Sacroiliac Joint

We see a large number of people with back pain in our Henderson office, and Dr. Russell finds that quite a few cases of back pain start in the sacroiliac (SI) joint. Investigation shows that around 25% of all back pain begins in the SI joint, and now fresh research corroborates what we have noticed in our clinic: chiropractic is an effective approach to treating this issue.

Research Proves Chiropractic Treatment Helps Increase Movement in the SI Joint

In the study released in the Journal of Bodywork and Movement Therapies, thirty-two 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 isolated to the sacroiliac joint, and the other group was given an adjustment to the sacroiliac joint as well as the lumbar spine.

Specialists observed significantly more improvements in both pain and movement immediately following treatment, two days later, and 30 days after for the patients 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 continuing benefits for sacroiliac joint pain sufferers even after only one treatment session.

Therefore, if you are having trouble with sacroiliac joint pain, or cope with back and leg pain and want to see if your sacroiliac joint is the source, a consultation at our Henderson office could be the first and best step towards recovery. Give our office a call today at (702) 990-2225.
