Low Back Pain and the SI Joint
We help a large number of patients with back pain in our Noblesville office, and Dr. Dahlager has noticed that many cases of back pain stem from the sacroiliac (SI) joint. Research shows that roughly twenty-five percent of all back pain originates in the SI joint, and now fresh research ratifies what we have observed in our office: chiropractic is an effective approach to treating this problem.
Research Proves Chiropractic Treatment Helps Increase Movement in the SI Joint
In the study released in the Journal of Bodywork and Movement Therapies, 32 women who suffered from sacroiliac joint dysfunction were separated into two groups and asked to participate in one of two treatment therapies. The first group went through 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 noticed significantly more 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 manipulation administered in these two areas offers both prompt and lasting benefits for sacroiliac joint pain sufferers even with only one treatment round.
So, if you are dealing with sacroiliac joint pain, or have back and leg pain and are ready to find out whether your sacroiliac joint is the root, a visit to our Noblesville office could be the first and best step towards feeling better. Give our office a call today at (317) 214-7218.
