We treat a large number of people with back pain in our Boardman, OH office, and Dr. Denise Carradine has noticed that many cases of back pain originate in the sacroiliac (SI) joint. Research shows that around 25% of all back pain starts out in the SI joint, and now new research corroborates what we see in our clinic: chiropractic is an effective method for treating this pain.
In the study published in the Journal of Bodywork and Movement Therapies, 32 women with sacroiliac joint syndrome were separated into two groups and asked to participate in one of two treatment therapies. one group received a chiropractic adjustment isolated to the sacroiliac joint, and the other group was given an adjustment to the sacroiliac joint as well as the lumbar spine.
Researchers observed significantly more improvements in both pain and movement immediately after treatment, two days post-treatment, and 30 days later for the patients who underwent high-velocity low-amplitude manipulation to both the sacroiliac joint and the lumbar spine. This suggests that chiropractic treatment administered in these two areas offers both short term and continuing benefits for sacroiliac joint pain sufferers even with only 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 if your sacroiliac joint is the root, a visit to our Boardman, OH office may be the first and best step towards recovery. Give our office a call today at (330) 758-4446.
