Chiropractic Therapy Treats Lower Back Issues and the Sacroiliac Joint

Jacksonville Chiropractic Therapy Extremely Effective for Pain in the Sacroiliac Joint

We see a good number of men and women with back pain in our Jacksonville office, and Chanatry Chiropractic has noticed that quite a few cases of back discomfort stem from the sacroiliac (SI) joint. Research shows that roughly twenty-five percent of all back pain starts out in the SI joint, and now fresh research confirms what we have noticed in our office: chiropractic is an effective way to treat this problem.

Research Proves Chiropractic Treatment Helps Increase Movement in the SI Joint

In the study published in the Journal of Bodywork and Movement Therapies, thirty-two women who suffered from sacroiliac joint dysfunction were separated into two groups and asked to take part in one of two treatment therapies. The first group was given a chiropractic adjustment only at the sacroiliac joint, and the second group had an adjustment to the sacroiliac joint and the lumbar spine.

Scientists noticed significantly more improvements in both pain and movement immediately following treatment, two days post-treatment, and 30 days after for the patients who underwent high-velocity low-amplitude manipulation to both the sacroiliac joint and the lumbar spine. This asserts that chiropractic therapy 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 dealing with sacroiliac joint pain, or live with back and leg problems and are ready to know if your sacroiliac joint is the root, a visit to our Jacksonville office may be the first and best step towards feeling better. Give our office a call today at (904) 743-6700.
