We see a lot of people with back pain in our Harrisburg office, and Blake Chiropractic & Rehabilitation finds that quite a few cases of back discomfort originate in the sacroiliac (SI) joint. Research has revealed that around 25% of all back pain begins in the SI joint, and now new research confirms what we have observed in our clinic: chiropractic is an effective way to treat this issue.
In the study released in the Journal of Bodywork and Movement Therapies, thirty-two women with sacroiliac joint dysfunction were separated into two groups and asked to participate in one of two treatment methods. one group went through a chiropractic adjustment isolated to the sacroiliac joint, and the other group received an adjustment to the sacroiliac joint as well as the lumbar spine.
Specialists noticed greater improvements in both pain and movement immediately following treatment, two days post-treatment, and 30 days later for the individuals 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 continuing benefits for sacroiliac joint pain sufferers even after just one treatment round.
So, if you are suffering with sacroiliac joint discomfort, or cope with back and leg issues and are ready to know whether your sacroiliac joint is the root, a visit to our Harrisburg office could be the first and best step towards recovery. Give our office a call today at (717) 657-2561.
