We see a large number of men and women with back pain in our Parma, Middleburg Heights office, and Baker Chiropractic Wellness Center finds that quite a few cases of back pain start in the sacroiliac (SI) joint. Research shows that about 25% of all back pain originates in the SI joint, and now fresh research confirms what we have observed in our clinic: chiropractic is an effective approach to treating this problem.
In the study released in the Journal of Bodywork and Movement Therapies, thirty-two women with sacroiliac joint dysfunction were split into two groups and asked to engage in one of two treatment methods. one group was given a chiropractic adjustment isolated to the sacroiliac joint, and the alternate group was given an adjustment to the sacroiliac joint as well as the lumbar spine.
Researchers observed significantly more improvements in both pain and movement immediately following treatment, two days post-treatment, and 30 days later for the group who underwent 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 prompt and long term results for sacroiliac joint pain sufferers—even with just a single treatment session.
Therefore, if you are having trouble with sacroiliac joint pain, or live with back and leg pain and are ready to know whether your sacroiliac joint is the root, a consultation at our Parma, Middleburg Heights office could be the first—and best—step towards feeling better.
