What is the Sacroiliac Joint?
The Sacroiliac joint (SI joint) is made up of the sacrum and pelvis bones (Ilium). We have two SI joints, a right and left. The joint is designed to absorb and distribute stress and weight in the standing position. The SI joints are a common source of pain. The joints can be affected with repetitive stress (running), poor posture, daily wear and tear, subluxation, and sprain of the ligaments supporting the SI Joint. Sacroiliac joint pain can sometimes be difficult to isolate and diagnosis. It is important to seek proper care, such as chiropractic, if you suspect Sacroiliac joint dysfunction.
At Axe Chiropractic we take a multidisciplinary approach to the treatment of Sacroiliac Joint. A complete examination will be performed to verify the cause of the pain. Proper diagnostic imaging may be ordered to rule out other factors. The first level of treatment will be a customized plan of Chiropractic adjustments, specific exercises and stretches. Chiropractic adjustments usually resolve the issue but if the expected results from the adjustments are not accomplished a referral to our medical doctors may be necessary to assist in the treatment. Axe Chiropractic is one of the few chiropractic offices in DFW that works hand and hand with medical doctors to properly treat and manage spinal conditions and injuries.
