Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction Melbourne
Book with Dr. Jim Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction Melbourne
The sacroiliac joints are located in the lower back and join the sacrum (base of the spine) to the pelvic bones (ilium). There are two sacroiliac joints – one on either side of the spine. The sacroiliac joints act to transfer weight from the spine to the pelvis and then thru the hips to the legs. These joints allow a small but very important amount of movement to occur.
We offer sacroiliac joint dysfunction Melbourne treatment for one of the more common causes of mechanical low back pain and a condition that we care for very commonly in our center.
Sacroiliac joint dysfunction Melbourne may occur from excessive forces being applied to the sacroiliac joint. This can be from bending, sitting, lifting, arching, or twisting movements of the spine, or, from weight-bearing forces associated with running or jumping. Injury to the sacroiliac joint may occur traumatically or due to repetitive or prolonged forces over time. Often SI joints will gradually tighten up through prolonged sitting but not become painful until later activity.
These joints are supplied by a complex network of nerves and are in close proximity to nerves affecting the legs and lower abdominal organs. Sacroiliac pain can present as low back, leg, groin, or hip pain. Many times knee and hip problems will be corrected by adjusting the sacroiliac joint.
With the SOT and Gentle chiropractic approach, we use in our center the sacroiliac joint is most carefully analyzed to ensure a very precise correction with adjustment. We find the more precisely the SI joint is examined and adjusted, the more effective and comfortable the result.
