Have you ever considered receiving specialised chiropractic treatment for your sacroiliac joint pain? At The Backstory in Caringbah, we deliver evidence-based treatments that target your sacroiliac joint dysfunction and 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 fall out of alignment, it puts pressure on the surrounding cartilage, and this can cause pain and discomfort.
The sacroiliac joints can become misaligned due to being overweight, having one leg slightly shorter than the other, or walking improperly after an injury, surgery or other occurrence that affects our gait. 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 misalign.
How do we diagnose and treat hip pain at our Caringbah clinic?
For your initial consultation with our exceptional team of chiropractic professionals, 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.
One simple but effective method we have for swiftly identifying your sacroiliac joint pain is the Patrick’s test, which involves crossing the patient’s foot to their other knee and depressing the knee to strain the sacroiliac joint.
