Chiropractic provides incredibly effective lower back pain treatment.
Dysfunction in the sacroiliac joint (SIJ), which is a large joint in your lower back connecting your sacrum to your pelvis, can sometimes cause lower back and/or leg pain. Dysfunction of this joint basically means that it is not operating normally.
For decades, medical professionals suspected the sacroiliac joint was a common cause of low back and/or leg pain. However, difficulty in accurate diagnostic testing has made this difficult to substantiate.
Today’s research estimates that the SIJ is responsible for 15% to 30% of lower back pain cases.
The primary mechanisms of SIJ dysfunction include:
- Too much movement in the SIJ can cause the pelvis to feel unstable and lead to pain. Patients typically feel pain from too much motion in the lower back and/or hip, which may then radiate into the groin area.
- Not enough movement can cause muscle tension, pain, and may inhibit mobility. Pain is typically felt on one side of the low back or buttocks and can radiate down the back of the leg like sciatica pain.
SIJ dysfunction is more common in young and middle-aged women. Women who are pregnant or have recently given birth may be more susceptible to SIJ pain.
Chiropractic treatment for SIJ dysfunction typically focus on alleviating pain and restoring normal motion in the joint. At Our Chiro Brisbane we aim to reduce your pain and discomfort as swiftly as we can.
Most cases of SI joint pain are effectively managed using Chiropractic care without the need for a referral for more tests.
At Our Chiro Brisbane, we understand that everyone is unique. As such, there is no single approach to managing SI joint pain that will work for everyone. Therefore, a combination of treatment as determined by your Chiropractor is usually necessary for effective pain relief.
