Chiropractic Effective for Back Pain and the SI Joint

Livermore Chiropractic Treats Pain in the Sacroiliac Joint

We see a lot of people with back pain in our Livermore office, and Haque Chiropractic Inc. has noticed that many cases of back problems stem from the sacroiliac (SI) joint. Research shows that about one quarter of all back pain begins in the SI joint, and now new research confirms what we have noticed in our office: chiropractic is an effective approach to treating this problem.

Research Shows Chiropractic Treatment Can Help 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 split into two groups and asked to take part in one of two treatment therapies. one group went through a chiropractic adjustment only at the sacroiliac joint, and the alternate group was given an adjustment to the sacroiliac joint as well as 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 treatment administered in these two areas offers both short term and continuing benefits for sacroiliac joint pain sufferers even with just a single treatment session.

Therefore, if you are having trouble with sacroiliac joint problems, or live with back and leg issues and are ready to find out if your sacroiliac joint is the source, a visit to our Livermore office may be the first and best step towards feeling better.
