We see a large number of people with back pain in our Nashville office, and Sweeney Chiropractic has noticed that quite a few cases of back pain stem from the sacroiliac (SI) joint. Investigation shows that roughly 25% of all back pain begins in the SI joint, and now fresh 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 syndrome were separated into two groups and asked to take part in one of two treatment methods. one group went through a chiropractic adjustment only at the sacroiliac joint, and the other group had an adjustment to the sacroiliac joint and the lumbar spine.
Specialists observed greater improvements in both pain and movement immediately after 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 demonstrates that chiropractic therapy applied to these two areas offers both prompt and lasting results for sacroiliac joint pain sufferers—even with only a single treatment round.
So, if you are dealing with sacroiliac joint pain, or live with back and leg pain and want to see if your sacroiliac joint is the source, a consultation at our Nashville office may be the first—and best—step towards recovery. Give our office a call today at (615) 331-7040.
