We treat a large number of people with back pain in our Memphis office, and Dr. Amodeo has noticed that many cases of back pain start in the sacroiliac (SI) joint. Investigation has revealed that roughly 25% of all back pain originates in the SI joint, and now new research corroborates what we have noticed in our clinic: chiropractic is an effective method for treating 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 take part in one of two treatment methods. one group was given a chiropractic adjustment isolated to the sacroiliac joint, and the alternate group got an adjustment to the sacroiliac joint as well as the lumbar spine.
Specialists noticed greater improvements in both pain and movement immediately after treatment, two days post-treatment, and 30 days after for the group who underwent high-velocity low-amplitude manipulation to both the sacroiliac joint and the lumbar spine. This demonstrates that chiropractic treatment applied to these two areas offers both prompt and continuing results for sacroiliac joint pain sufferers even with only a single treatment session.
Therefore, if you are having trouble with sacroiliac joint pain, or live with back and leg pain and would like to see whether your sacroiliac joint is the root, a consultation at our Memphis office could be the first and best step towards recovery. Give our office a call today at (901) 757-8311.
