Lumbar Pain and the Sacroiliac Joint

We help a good number of people with back pain in our Mt Sterling office, and Dr. Linton has noticed that many cases of back pain originate in the sacroiliac (SI) joint. Investigation shows that roughly 25% of all back pain begins in the SI joint, and now fresh research ratifies what we have noticed in our clinic: chiropractic is an effective method for treating this issue.

Research Proves Chiropractic Treatment Helps Increase Movement in the SI Joint

In the study released in the Journal of Bodywork and Movement Therapies, thirty-two women who suffered from sacroiliac joint syndrome were separated into two groups and asked to participate in one of two treatment therapies. one group received a chiropractic adjustment isolated to the sacroiliac joint, and the other group got an adjustment to the sacroiliac joint and the lumbar spine.

Specialists noticed significantly more improvements in both pain and movement immediately following treatment, two days later, and 30 days after for the individuals who had been given high-velocity low-amplitude manipulation to both the sacroiliac joint and the lumbar spine. This suggests that chiropractic treatment administered in these two areas offers both prompt and long term benefits for sacroiliac joint pain sufferers even after just one treatment round.

Therefore, if you are having trouble with sacroiliac joint pain, or have back and leg pain and are ready to see if your sacroiliac joint is the cause, a consultation at our Mt Sterling office could be the first and best step towards feeling better. Give our office a call today at (859) 499-1009.
