We treat a lot of men and women with back pain in our Singapore office, and Dr. Stakes finds that many cases of back pain originate in the sacroiliac (SI) joint. Research shows that about twenty-five percent of all back pain starts out in the SI joint, and now new research ratifies what we have observed in our office: chiropractic is an effective method for treating this problem.
In the study published in the Journal of Bodywork and Movement Therapies, thirty-two women with sacroiliac joint syndrome were split into two groups and asked to engage in one of two treatment methods. The first group went through a chiropractic adjustment isolated to the sacroiliac joint, and the other group received an adjustment to the sacroiliac joint as well as the lumbar spine.
Specialists observed significantly more improvements in both pain and movement immediately after treatment, two days later, and 30 days after for the individuals who had been given high-velocity low-amplitude manipulation to both the sacroiliac joint and the lumbar spine. This asserts that chiropractic manipulation administered in these two areas offers both prompt and long term benefits for sacroiliac joint pain sufferers even with only one treatment round.
Therefore, if you are having trouble with sacroiliac joint pain, or live with back and leg pain and are ready to know if your sacroiliac joint is the source, a consultation at our Singapore office could be the first and best step towards recovery. Give our office a call today at 62351220.
