A very common cause of low back pain is Sacroiliac joint dysfunction. Sacroiliac joint dysfunction is often confused with Sciatica as it can present as pain in the low back, with referred pain to the back of the thigh/leg. Normally caused by poor posture, leg length changes, pregnancy, overuse or occupational (excessive sitting/bending). SI joint dysfunction can be treated effectively with Chiropractic care. Chiropractors can help improve mobility and function and reduce inflammation/pain. Modalities of treatment include manipulation, mobilisation, posture advice, soft tissue techniques and core stability. Rehabilitation is very important once pain has eased and at Neath Port Talbot Chiropractic clinic, we use "The big 3" core exercises which Prof Stuart McGill has found evidence to support use of these exercises in stabilising the lumbo pelvic area, therefore preventing reoccurrence of SIJ dysfunction. If you think you may be suffering with Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction, give Neath Port Talbot Chiropractors a call to arrange a consultation.
