Chiropractic Help & Pain Relief for SI in Auburn
Do you have lower back, leg pain or both? If so it may stem from the same source: The Sacroiliac (or SI) joint. Here at Live Long and Prosper Chiropractic many patients come in with these complaints often, so we are well experienced on how to treat this issue. But why is this such a common problem? Let’s look at how the joint functions.
The SI joint is where the sacrum, the foundation of the spine, meets your pelvis with a joint on either side. It is generally immobile only moving a few millimeters and degrees. It is surrounded by a network of soft tissue surrounding the joint and supports the joint, helps limit movement, and assists with absorbing pressure.
SI pain in Auburn
When someone is suffering from SI joint pain, or dysfunction, it is in large part due to motion either too much or too little. Too much movement, or hypermobility can cause the pelvis to feel unstable leading to stress on the joint and even more so on the soft tissue around it causing pain. The pain from too much motion is typically felt in the lower back and hips and may also radiate into the groin area. Too little movement, or hypomobility can cause muscle tension, pain, and may prevent mobility further. SI joint pain is typically felt on one side of the low back or gluteal area and occasionally radiates down the back of leg and is frequently diagnosed as sciatica pain. Inflammation of the sacroiliitis (SI) will also produce pelvic stiffness and pain.
For those who suffer from these symptoms, there is hope in the form of chiropractic help, adjustments and rehabilitative therapies available at our clinic as well as can home care instructions that will help speed up recovery. With the right care plan we can help relieve your chronic pain and get you on the path to wellness. So give us a call at Live Long & Prosper Chiropractic in Auburn or stop by and see how we can make a positive change in your life!
Auburn Chiropractor Helps Range of Motion
A body in motion is a wonderful thing, but through poor lifestyle choices, injuries and general aging our range of motion can diminish to the point that activities as simple as reaching and bending over can be painful or difficult. It is common to take flexibility and ease of movement for granted when some is flexibility. However, as time goes by simple movements become more difficult, and with increased tightness and restriction you are more prone to be injured. Auburn chiropractors help patients with a range of motion issues everyday, and they can help you too.
Range of Motion for Daily Activities
Common everyday activities like brushing your teeth, tying your shoes or backing the car into the driveway all require joints in your body to move appropriately and in harmony. It does not matter if it is your shoulders, elbows, wrists, cervical and lumbar spine, knees or neck; joints need to move freely in order to function at their best potential. When joints are properly aligned and the muscles and ligaments are flexible joints will have less issues and have reduced risk of future issues. This can frequently be resolved relatively easily but if there is an injury or degenerative condition in even one of these joints, it can frequently have a large impact on your daily life making it painful or inconvenient to do simple daily tasks.
The Spine and Range of Motion
Your spine is one the primary areas of treatment for Auburn chiropractic doctors, and when your spinal range of motion is reduced it affects many areas of your life. Issues with your spine can contribute or cause many conditions such as wrist pain, muscle weakness, headaches, debilitating back pain and even infant colic. As spinal range of motion decreases, it’s very common that you’ll be able to do less and less as the pain will worsen. Spinal adjustments restoring alignment can bring significant relief of pain and improvement in range of motion. There are so many ways that your vertebrae can become misaligned that visiting a chiropractor is a great idea, even if you are not experiencing symptoms at this time.
Our Auburn chiropractic help team at Live Long & Prosper Chiropractic can work wonders when it comes to increasing range of motion in your spine and other areas of the body. Even if pain and stiffness has been around for a long time, a few sessions with a reputable chiropractor in Auburn can help restore blood flow, improve nerve impingement and get your back in alignment and functioning at its best potential. Chiropractic treatment for range of motion issues may include spinal adjustments and frequently manipulations to other parts of the body involved in the problem. At our Auburn chiropractic office you will be given specific stretches or exercises to strengthen supporting muscles and lengthen tendons and ligaments in the affected areas. Once you are feeling better and your range of motion is restored and you’re feeling good, you should be able to get back to normal activities without any pain or restriction.
