We treat a good number of people with back pain in our Burton, MI office, and Dr. Elganainy finds that many cases of back pain start in the sacroiliac (SI) joint. Investigation shows that roughly twenty-five percent of all back pain starts out 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.
Research Supports Chiropractic Treatment Helps Increase Movement in the SI Joint
In the study published in the Journal of Bodywork and Movement Therapies, 32 women with sacroiliac joint syndrome were split into two groups and asked to take part in one of two treatment therapies. The first group received a chiropractic adjustment isolated to the sacroiliac joint, and the alternate group received an adjustment to the sacroiliac joint as well as the lumbar spine.
Scientists noticed significantly more improvements in both pain and movement immediately following treatment, two days later, and 30 days later for the patients who underwent high-velocity low-amplitude manipulation to both the sacroiliac joint and the lumbar spine. This asserts that chiropractic manipulation administered in these two areas offers both short term and continuing benefits for sacroiliac joint pain sufferers even with just one treatment session.
So, if you are having trouble with sacroiliac joint pain, or have back and leg pain and are ready to find out whether your sacroiliac joint is the root, a visit to our Burton, MI office could be the first and best step towards recovery. Give our office a call today at (810) 715-7746.
