SI Joint Pain Relief with Chiropractic
While there are numerous types of back pain, the discomfort associated with the sacroiliac (SI) joints can be especially agonizing. The SI joints bear the entire weight of your upper body and therefore are subject to frequent stress.
When patients experience back pain, many think they can only turn to medication or surgery. However, our team at O’Keefe Chiropractic Center in Medford, NJ, has spent years using chiropractic care to help patients with SI joint pain, and they can help you too.
Causes of SI Joint Pain
The SI joints are situated on either side of the lower back and connect the pelvis to the lower spine. While the joints themselves don’t move very much, they do support the weight of the upper body and absorb most of the shock that comes from physical activities like walking and lifting.
When excessive force is applied to the body, the SI joints can’t absorb all of the pressure and start to degenerate. The more pressure placed on the SI joints, the more they start to wear down.
Why SI Joint Pain Can Be Hard to Diagnose
SI joint pain can be extremely difficult to diagnose, especially for those unversed in the intricacies of the spine. The symptoms of SI joint strain, like lower back pain and sciatica, are very similar to those of other common ailments, including herniated discs.
If you’re experiencing this type of pain, it’s essential to seek out the advice of an experienced chiropractor who can properly identify its source. That’s where O’Keefe Chiropractic can help.
