Chiropractic Therapy Treats Back Pain and the Sacroiliac Joint

Depew Chiropractic Care Effective for Issues in the Sacroiliac Joint

We treat a good number of people with back discomfort in our Depew office, and Dr. Palmer has noticed that several cases of back issues originate in the sacroiliac (SI) joint. Investigation has revealed that about 25% of all back pain begins in the SI joint, and now new research confirms what we have observed in our office: chiropractic is an effective way to treat this pain.

Research Proves Chiropractic Care Can Help Increase Movement in the SI Joint

In the study published in the Journal of Bodywork and Movement Therapies, thirty-two women who suffered from sacroiliac joint syndrome were split into two groups and asked to take part in one of two treatment therapies. The first group went through a chiropractic adjustment only at the sacroiliac joint, and the other group received an adjustment to the sacroiliac joint and the lumbar spine.

Scientists observed significantly more improvements in both pain and movement immediately following treatment, two days post-treatment, and 30 days later for the individuals who received high-velocity low-amplitude manipulation to both the sacroiliac joint and the lumbar spine. This suggests that chiropractic manipulation administered in these two areas offers both prompt and lasting results for sacroiliac joint pain sufferers even after just one treatment round.

So, if you are suffering with sacroiliac joint pain, or live with back and leg pain and would like to know if your sacroiliac joint is the cause, a visit to our Depew office could be the first and best step towards recovery. Give our office a call today at (716) 668-2225.
