Chiropractic Helps Lower Back Pain and the Sacroiliac Joint

West New York Chiropractic Therapy Extremely Effective for Issues in the Sacroiliac Joint

We help a good number of men and women with back pain in our West New York office, and Dr. Marsh finds that several cases of back problems start in the sacroiliac (SI) joint. Research has revealed that about one quarter of all back pain originates in the SI joint, and now new research ratifies what we have observed in our office: chiropractic is an effective way to treat this problem.

Research Proves Chiropractic Adjustments 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 syndrome were separated into two groups and asked to participate in one of two treatment methods. The first group received a chiropractic adjustment isolated to the sacroiliac joint, and the alternate group was given an adjustment to the sacroiliac joint and the lumbar spine.

Specialists found significantly more improvements in both pain and movement immediately following treatment, two days post-treatment, and 30 days after for the individuals who underwent high-velocity low-amplitude manipulation to both the sacroiliac joint and the lumbar spine. This shows that chiropractic manipulation administered in these two areas offers both short term and continuing results for sacroiliac joint pain sufferers even with just one treatment round.

So, if you are having trouble with sacroiliac joint discomfort, or have back and leg discomfort and are ready to know whether your sacroiliac joint is the source, a visit to our West New York office may be the first and best step towards improvement. Give our office a call today at (201) 869-0830.
