Chiropractic Therapy Extremely Effective for Lower Back Problems and the Sacroiliac Joint

Kettering Chiropractic Therapy Effective for Problems in the Sacroiliac Joint

We help a lot of people with back discomfort in our Kettering office, and Dr. Poelking has noticed that many cases of back issues originate in the sacroiliac (SI) joint. Investigation has revealed that about 25% of all back pain starts out in the SI joint, and now new research corroborates what we have noticed in our office: chiropractic is an effective method for treating this pain.

Research Shows Chiropractic Therapy 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 dysfunction were separated into two groups and asked to take part in one of two treatment methods. The first group went through a chiropractic adjustment only at the sacroiliac joint, and the second group got an adjustment to the sacroiliac joint as well as the lumbar spine.

Researchers noticed significantly more improvements in both pain and movement immediately after treatment, two days post-treatment, and 30 days later for the patients who underwent high-velocity low-amplitude manipulation to both the sacroiliac joint and the lumbar spine. This demonstrates that chiropractic manipulation administered in these two areas offers both short term and continuing results for sacroiliac joint pain sufferers even after just a single treatment round.

Therefore, if you are suffering with sacroiliac joint problems, or live with back and leg problems and want to know whether your sacroiliac joint is the source, a visit to our Kettering office could be the first and best step towards improvement. Give our office a call today at (937) 299-2900.
