We see a lot of people with back pain in our Lincoln office, and Dr. Kallio has noticed that many cases of back pain originate in the sacroiliac (SI) joint. Research shows that about 25% of all back pain originates in the SI joint, and now fresh research ratifies what we have noticed in our office: chiropractic is an effective approach to treating this problem.
In the study released in the Journal of Bodywork and Movement Therapies, thirty-two women who suffered from sacroiliac joint dysfunction were separated into two groups and asked to participate in one of two treatment methods. The first group was given a chiropractic adjustment isolated to the sacroiliac joint, and the alternate group got an adjustment to the sacroiliac joint as well as the lumbar spine.
Researchers found significantly more improvements in both pain and movement immediately following treatment, two days later, and 30 days after for the patients who underwent high-velocity low-amplitude manipulation to both the sacroiliac joint and the lumbar spine. This asserts that chiropractic treatment administered in these two areas offers both short term and lasting benefits for sacroiliac joint pain sufferers even with just one treatment round.
Therefore, if you are dealing with sacroiliac joint pain, or live with back and leg pain and are ready to know if your sacroiliac joint is the root, a consultation at our Lincoln office could be the first and best step towards feeling better. Give our office a call today at (402) 484-5166.
