Have you ever considered receiving Chiropractic treatment for your sacroiliac joint pain? At Enhance Chiropractic, we deliver evidence-based treatment
s that targets your sacroiliac joint dysfunction and aims to relieve pain for a better quality lifestyle.
For those who are unaware, those two dimples you often see at the base of people’s spine is where our sacroiliac joints are – it’s where your sacrum and pelvis meet. When these joints aren’t moving or stabilising properly, it puts pressure on the surrounding cartilage, and this can cause pain and discomfort.
The sacroiliac joints can become painful due to repetitive movement, poor posture, having one leg slightly shorter than the other, or walking improperly after an injury, surgery or other occurrence that affects our gait (walking). Traumatic events, such as a car accident, sports-related injury, slip, trip or fall can also cause one or both of the sacroiliac joints to be injured.
How do we diagnose and treat hip pain at our Southbank clinic?
For your initial consultation with Anthony, we will take a detailed history of any previous or existing medical conditions, discuss the symptoms of your current discomfort, and conduct a physical exam to get a clearer idea of the extent of the problem.
There is a battery of tests that are used to diagnose sacroiliac joint (SIJ) pain. One of these is the Patrick’s (aka FABER) test, which involves crossing the patient’s foot to their other knee and depressing the knee to strain the SIJ. This test may cause pain in the sacroiliac joint, and combined with other test results, can help diagnose the cause of the pain.
We may also request X-rays to see the joints and cartilage for a more precise and accurate assessment, before developing a personalised sacroiliac joint pain Chiropractic treatment plan that is tailored to your specific needs.
At Enhance Chiropractic, we adopt the same results-driven process for people suffering with back pain, headaches, shoulder tension and other spinal-related conditions.
