If you’re struggling with back pain, there’s a chance that sacroiliac joint dysfunction (SJD) is the culprit. SJD occurs when the SI joints become misaligned or inflamed, causing pain and stiffness in the lower back. While medical treatment is an option, many people find relief through chiropractic care. In this blog post, I’ll be sharing everything you need to know about SJD, from symptoms to treatment options. Whether you’re currently suffering from this condition or are simply looking for ways to prevent it, I hope this post will provide some helpful insights.
As a general rule, treatment of Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction is typically a combination of laser therapy, chiropractic, and physiotherapy to provide a comprehensive solution for your pain and discomfort.
What is Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction (SJD)?
As a Chiropractor, I am experienced in diagnosing and treating issues related to Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction (SJD). SJD is a condition that can cause pain in the lower back region and is often accompanied by reduced mobility and an abnormal range of motion. It occurs when one or both of the sacroiliac joints become inflamed or irritated, usually as a result of injury, overuse or minor trauma. Fortunately for my patients, Chiropractic can be an effective treatment for this issue without the need for surgery or invasive methods. Through Chiropractic adjustments to realign and gently mobilize the SI joint combined with therapeutic therapies such as targeted exercise routines and cold/heat therapy, I have seen many cases of SJD completely resolve without medical intervention. If you are experiencing any lumbar pain or stiffness due to potential Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction, reach out to me for an assessment and personalized treatment plan tailored to your individual needs.
Symptoms of SJD
Chiropractors are uniquely positioned to diagnose and treat Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction, as they have the training and resources to provide non-surgical, non-invasive treatments of its symptoms. Symptoms of SJD can include pain in the lower back that may radiate into the buttocks or even down into the legs. Chiropractors are particularly qualified to treat SJD because they offer a range of treatments, including spinal adjustments and therapeutic strengthening exercises, specifically tailored to alleviate these kinds of issues. Chiropractor services can provide patients with fast pain relief from uncomfortable SJD symptoms so they can get back on their feet quickly.
Causes of SJD
Chiropractic treatment for Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction (SJD) can be a beneficial non-invasive and non-surgical approach to finding relief from the pain associated with this diagnosis. Oftentimes, SJD is caused by the significant amount of motion and stress that is placed on the lumbar region as a function of everyday activities like walking, running, and sitting. If not corrected in a timely manner, the increased pressure being placed on the lumbar region may lead to persistent pain, muscle spasms and radiating lower back pain. Chiropractors are experienced in properly diagnosing SJD and then providing effective treatment to restore mobility to these important joints in the body so that patients obtain fast relief while preventing future occurrences.
