We treat a good number of people with back pain in our Prescott office, and Weary Chiropractic Clinic has noticed that quite a few cases of back pain originate in the sacroiliac (SI) joint. Investigation has demonstrated that roughly 25% of all back pain begins in the SI joint, and now fresh research ratifies what we have noticed in our office: chiropractic is an effective way to treat this problem.
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 take part in one of two treatment methods. one group was given a chiropractic adjustment only at the sacroiliac joint, and the second group had an adjustment to the sacroiliac joint as well as the lumbar spine.
Researchers found significantly more improvements in both pain and movement immediately after treatment, two days later, and 30 days after for the group who received high-velocity low-amplitude manipulation to both the sacroiliac joint and the lumbar spine. This asserts that chiropractic treatment applied to these two areas offers both prompt and lasting benefits for sacroiliac joint pain sufferers even after just a single treatment round.
So, if you are dealing with sacroiliac joint pain, or live with back and leg pain and are ready to find out whether your sacroiliac joint is the root, a consultation at our Prescott office could be the first and best step towards feeling better. Give our office a call today at (928) 778-2227.
