A new study confirms that chiropractic care is an effective safe way to treat sacroiliac joint pain.
The sacroiliac joint, or SI joint is located at the base of the spine where the sacrum and pelvis connect to one another.
SI joint pain has a number of causes: Leg length discrepancies, pain or altered function of the hip, leg, and knee, and pregnancy are all common causes of SI joint pain.
In pregnancy, the body produces hormones that cause the ligaments to relax, and this can allow excessive movement in the SI joint, causing the bones to rub against one another.
In this new study, researchers performed a single chiropractic session on 32 women with SI joint syndrome. The patients reported immediate relief and experienced significant reduction in pain after both 48 hours and 1 month after treatment.
This is just one more study that has found that chiropractic is a powerful drug free way to treat muscular skeletal pain. If you suffer from sacroiliac joint pain or any other kind of back pain, give our office a call today at 775-329-4402 to see how we can help.
