Low Back Pain and the SI Joint

We help a good number of patients with back pain in our Massillon office, and Dr. Haycock has noticed that quite a few cases of back pain start in the sacroiliac (SI) joint. Research has demonstrated that about 25% of all back pain begins in the SI joint, and now fresh research ratifies what we have observed in our office: chiropractic is an effective way to treat this problem.

Research Proves Chiropractic Treatment 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 split into two groups and asked to participate in one of two treatment therapies. one group went through a chiropractic adjustment only at the sacroiliac joint, and the second group received an adjustment to the sacroiliac joint as well as the lumbar spine.

Researchers noticed greater improvements in both pain and movement immediately after treatment, two days post-treatment, and 30 days after for the patients who had been given high-velocity low-amplitude manipulation to both the sacroiliac joint and the lumbar spine. This asserts that chiropractic therapy applied to these two areas offers both short term and continuing results for sacroiliac joint pain sufferers even with just a single treatment session.

Therefore, if you are having trouble with sacroiliac joint pain, or have back and leg pain and want to see whether your sacroiliac joint is the source, a visit to our Massillon office may be the first and best step towards recovery. Give our office a call today at (330) 833-2085.
