Chiropractic Care Helps Relieve Lumbar Problems and the Sacroiliac Joint

Woburn Chiropractic Care Helps Relieve Problems in the Sacroiliac Joint

We help a good number of patients with back pain in our Woburn office, and Dr. Ellis finds that many cases of back discomfort originate in the sacroiliac (SI) joint. Research shows that roughly twenty-five percent of all back pain begins in the SI joint, and now fresh research confirms what we see in our clinic: chiropractic is an effective way to treat this issue.

Research Supports Chiropractic Care Can Help Increase Movement in the SI Joint

In the study published in the Journal of Bodywork and Movement Therapies, 32 women with sacroiliac joint syndrome were split 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 other group got an adjustment to the sacroiliac joint as well as the lumbar spine.

Specialists observed greater improvements in both pain and movement immediately after treatment, two days later, and 30 days later for the individuals who received high-velocity low-amplitude manipulation to both the sacroiliac joint and the lumbar spine. This shows that chiropractic manipulation applied to these two areas offers both prompt and long term benefits for sacroiliac joint pain sufferers even after only a single treatment round.

So, if you are suffering with sacroiliac joint discomfort, or live with back and leg issues and are ready to find out if your sacroiliac joint is the source, a consultation at our Woburn office may be the first and best step towards improvement. Give our office a call today at (781) 460-0939.
