We see a lot of men and women with back pain in our Tulsa office, and Alliance Chiropractic has noticed that many cases of back pain originate in the sacroiliac (SI) joint. Investigation shows that about one quarter of all back pain starts out in the SI joint, and now fresh research corroborates what we have noticed in our office: chiropractic is an effective approach to treating this problem.
In the study released in the Journal of Bodywork and Movement Therapies, 32 women with sacroiliac joint dysfunction were separated into two groups and asked to engage in one of two treatment therapies. one group was given a chiropractic adjustment isolated to the sacroiliac joint, and the other group received an adjustment to the sacroiliac joint and the lumbar spine.
Scientists observed significantly more improvements in both pain and movement immediately after treatment, two days later, and 30 days after for the individuals who received high-velocity low-amplitude manipulation to both the sacroiliac joint and the lumbar spine. This suggests that chiropractic manipulation administered in these two areas offers both short term and continuing results for sacroiliac joint pain sufferers—even with only one treatment session.
Therefore, if you are dealing with sacroiliac joint pain, or live with back and leg pain and are ready to see whether your sacroiliac joint is the cause, a consultation at our Tulsa office could be the first—and best—step towards recovery. Give our office a call today at (918) 832-7880.
