We help a large number of men and women with back pain in our Depew office, and Dr. Palmer finds that many cases of back pain stem from the sacroiliac (SI) joint. Research shows that around twenty-five percent of all back pain starts out in the SI joint, and now fresh research ratifies what we have observed in our clinic: chiropractic is an effective method for treating this issue.
In the study released in the Journal of Bodywork and Movement Therapies, 32 women with sacroiliac joint dysfunction were split into two groups and asked to take part in one of two treatment therapies. one group received a chiropractic adjustment isolated to the sacroiliac joint, and the alternate group received an adjustment to the sacroiliac joint as well as the lumbar spine.
Specialists observed greater improvements in both pain and movement immediately following treatment, two days later, and 30 days after for the group who received high-velocity low-amplitude manipulation to both the sacroiliac joint and the lumbar spine. This asserts that chiropractic treatment applied to these two areas offers both prompt and continuing benefits for sacroiliac joint pain sufferers—even after just one treatment session.
So, if you are having trouble with sacroiliac joint pain, or cope with back and leg pain and are ready to find out if your sacroiliac joint is the root, a visit to our Depew office may be the first—and best—step towards recovery. Give our office a call today at (716) 668-2225.
