We see a large number of people with back discomfort in our Noblesville office, and Dr. Dahlager finds that quite a few cases of back discomfort originate in the sacroiliac (SI) joint. Investigation has revealed that around twenty-five percent of all back pain originates in the SI joint, and now new research corroborates what we see in our office: chiropractic is an effective approach to treating this pain.
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 participate in one of two treatment methods. one group received a chiropractic adjustment isolated to the sacroiliac joint, and the other group had an adjustment to the sacroiliac joint and the lumbar spine.
Scientists found greater improvements in both pain and movement immediately following treatment, two days later, and 30 days later for the patients who underwent high-velocity low-amplitude manipulation to both the sacroiliac joint and the lumbar spine. This asserts that chiropractic manipulation applied to these two areas offers both prompt and long term results for sacroiliac joint pain sufferers even after only one treatment round.
Therefore, if you are suffering with sacroiliac joint discomfort, or live with back and leg problems and want to see if your sacroiliac joint is the source, a consultation at our Noblesville office could be the first and best step towards feeling better.
