Jonesboro Chiropractic Helps Pain in the Sacroiliac Joint

We treat a lot of patients with back issues in our Jonesboro office, and Dr. Alpert finds that several cases of back issues stem from the sacroiliac (SI) joint. Research shows that about 25% of all back pain starts out in the SI joint, and now new research ratifies what we have noticed in our office: chiropractic is an effective method for treating this pain.

Research Shows Chiropractic Treatment Helps Increase Movement in the SI Joint

In the study released in the Journal of Bodywork and Movement Therapies, 32 women who suffered from sacroiliac joint dysfunction were separated into two groups and asked to take part in one of two treatment therapies. one group went through a chiropractic adjustment isolated to the sacroiliac joint, and the alternate group got an adjustment to the sacroiliac joint as well as the lumbar spine.

Scientists noticed significantly more improvements in both pain and movement immediately after treatment, two days post-treatment, and 30 days later for the group who had been given high-velocity low-amplitude manipulation to both the sacroiliac joint and the lumbar spine. This demonstrates that chiropractic therapy applied to these two areas offers both prompt and continuing benefits for sacroiliac joint pain sufferers even after only one treatment round.

Therefore, if you are suffering with sacroiliac joint issues, or have back and leg problems and are ready to know whether your sacroiliac joint is the source, a visit to our Jonesboro office could be the first and best step towards recovery. Give our office a call today at (770) 472-8989.
