Sacroiliac Joint Pain can range from an annoyance to debilitating. Your SI joints are located in the rear of the pelvis/hip area at the base of the spinal column. It is often mistaken for hip or lower back pain. SI pain can make your daily life miserable.
Studies confirm that chiropractic care is an effective, safe way to treat sacroiliac joint pain.
Pain in the SI joint can be caused by various factors such as leg length discrepancies, pregnancy, and altered function. In addition, excessive movement and weak muscles, ligaments, and tendons can lead to the joints rubbing against one another. This leads to a very strange friction sensation that some people can actually feel and it ranges from unpleasant and disturbing to downright painful. Another common cause of SI joint pain is the hormonal imbalance in the body. This can cause the ligaments to become too lax.
A recent study was conducted on 32 female participants with SI joint syndrome who had experienced significant relief after a single chiropractic session. They were checked in with again and all reported a reduction in their pain within 48 hours and that result was reported as still holding strong a month later.
This gives credence to research demonstrating that chiropractic is a powerful, drug-free way to treat musculoskeletal pain.
If you are experiencing SI pain, lower back pain, hip issues, or any other sources of discomfort within the body, give chiropractic care a try. This non-pharmaceutical-based therapy is hands-on and offers many the lasting relief they have been searching for.
