We treat a good number of men and women with back pain in our Humble office, and Dr. Groneck finds that quite a few cases of back pain originate in the sacroiliac (SI) joint. Investigation has demonstrated that around 25% of all back pain starts out 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 released in the Journal of Bodywork and Movement Therapies, thirty-two women who suffered from sacroiliac joint syndrome were split into two groups and asked to take part in one of two treatment methods. one group went through a chiropractic adjustment isolated to the sacroiliac joint, and the other group was given an adjustment to the sacroiliac joint and the lumbar spine.
Researchers found greater improvements in both pain and movement immediately after treatment, two days later, 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 treatment administered in these two areas offers both short term and long term benefits for sacroiliac joint pain sufferers even with just a single treatment round.
Therefore, if you are having trouble with sacroiliac joint pain, or live with back and leg pain and would like to find out whether your sacroiliac joint is the root, a visit to our Humble office could be the first and best step towards recovery. Give our office a call today at (281) 540-7201.
