We help a good number of people with back pain in our Depew office, and Dr. Palmer has noticed that many cases of back pain start in the sacroiliac (SI) joint. Research shows that roughly twenty-five percent of all back pain starts out in the SI joint, and now new research corroborates what we have observed in our office: 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 dysfunction were separated into two groups and asked to engage in one of two treatment therapies. The first group received a chiropractic adjustment isolated to the sacroiliac joint, and the second group got an adjustment to the sacroiliac joint as well as the lumbar spine.
Specialists noticed greater improvements in both pain and movement immediately following treatment, two days post-treatment, and 30 days after 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 long term benefits for sacroiliac joint pain sufferers even after just a single treatment session.
Therefore, if you are dealing 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 could be the first and best step towards feeling better. Give our office a call today at (716) 668-2225.
