We help a lot of men and women with back pain in our Depew office, and Dr. Palmer has noticed that several cases of back issues stem from the sacroiliac (SI) joint. Research shows that about twenty-five percent of all back pain starts out in the SI joint, and now fresh research corroborates what we have observed in our office: chiropractic is an effective method for treating this problem.
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 participate in one of two treatment methods. The first group went through a chiropractic adjustment only at the sacroiliac joint, and the alternate group had an adjustment to the sacroiliac joint and the lumbar spine.
Scientists observed greater improvements in both pain and movement immediately after treatment, two days later, and 30 days after for the group who had been given high-velocity low-amplitude manipulation to both the sacroiliac joint and the lumbar spine. This asserts that chiropractic treatment administered in these two areas offers both prompt and long term results for sacroiliac joint pain sufferers even after just a single treatment round.
So, if you are suffering with sacroiliac joint discomfort, or have back and leg discomfort and are ready to find out whether your sacroiliac joint is the source, a consultation at our Depew office could be the first and best step towards recovery. Give our office a call today at (716) 668-2225.
