We help a large number of patients with back pain in our Selden and Coram, NY office, and Dr. BenEliyahu has noticed that many cases of back pain originate in the sacroiliac (SI) joint. Research shows that roughly 25% 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 way to treat this issue.
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 participate in one of two treatment methods. The first group was given a chiropractic adjustment only at the sacroiliac joint, and the second group got an adjustment to the sacroiliac joint as well as the lumbar spine.
Scientists found greater improvements in both pain and movement immediately following treatment, two days post-treatment, and 30 days after for the group who received 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 long term results for sacroiliac joint pain sufferers even with just a single treatment round.
Therefore, if you are having trouble with sacroiliac joint pain, or have back and leg pain and are ready to see whether your sacroiliac joint is the source, a consultation at our Selden and Coram, NY office may be the first and best step towards recovery.
