Holtsville Chiropractic Care Effective for Issues in the Sacroiliac Joint

We treat a large number of people with back problems in our Holtsville office, and Dr. Cohen has noticed that many cases of back pain stem from the sacroiliac (SI) joint. Investigation has revealed that around one quarter of all back pain originates in the SI joint, and now new research confirms what we have noticed in our office: chiropractic is an effective way to treat this issue.

Research Shows Chiropractic Adjustments Can Help Increase Movement in the SI Joint

In the study released in the Journal of Bodywork and Movement Therapies, 32 women with sacroiliac joint syndrome were split into two groups and asked to engage in one of two treatment therapies. The first group was given a chiropractic adjustment only at the sacroiliac joint, and the other group received an adjustment to the sacroiliac joint and the lumbar spine.

Researchers observed significantly more improvements in both pain and movement immediately after treatment, two days post-treatment, and 30 days after for the group who received 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 results for sacroiliac joint pain sufferers even with only one treatment round.

Therefore, if you are suffering with sacroiliac joint pain, or cope with back and leg pain and want to know if your sacroiliac joint is the cause, a consultation at our Holtsville office could be the first and best step towards feeling better. Give our office a call today at (631) 360-7999.
