We see a lot of people with back issues in our Lincoln office, and Dr. Kallio finds that several cases of back discomfort start in the sacroiliac (SI) joint. Investigation shows that roughly one quarter of all back pain originates in the SI joint, and now new research corroborates what we see in our clinic: chiropractic is an effective way to treat this issue.
In the study published 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 therapies. one group received a chiropractic adjustment only at the sacroiliac joint, and the alternate group got an adjustment to the sacroiliac joint and the lumbar spine.
Researchers found significantly more improvements in both pain and movement immediately after treatment, two days post-treatment, and 30 days later for the individuals who received 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 prompt and long term results for sacroiliac joint pain sufferers even after only one treatment round.
So, if you are having trouble with sacroiliac joint problems, or cope with back and leg issues and are ready to find out whether your sacroiliac joint is the cause, a visit to our Lincoln office could be the first and best step towards improvement. Give our office a call today at (402) 484-5166.
