A lot of people go through the trouble of joint pain and various other body troubles in their life time. The worst thing about the joint pain is that it doesn’t just go away like that and you have to do a lot of things to get rid of the joint pain trouble.

Taking pain killers every now and then or opting for surgeries isn’t always an option and here is why the best drug-free and surgery-free treatment works out the best and that is chiropractic for your joint pain.

A lot of people have claimed to get relief with the help of the chiropractic treatments for their joint pain or arthritis. Chiropractic is all about expression of optimal health and living the best possible life for you. The focus, especially with doctors of chiropractic at The Joint, is about improving the overall quality of your daily life through regular spinal adjustments. When the adjustment is done properly, it helps the spine to restore its movement and that helps the nervous system to work efficiently and much better.

Chiropractic Adjustment for Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction

Chiropractic adjustment or spinal manipulation of the sacroiliac joint is usually accomplished with the patient lying down on his or her side. Specifically:

1.    The top knee is flexed  or bent and then raised toward the patient's chest
2.    The bottom shoulder is positioned forward, producing a stretch in the low back and pelvic region
3.    The chiropractor's contact hand is placed over the sacroiliac joint and pressure is applied while the patient's upper shoulder is tractioned (pushed to create tension) backward and the knee is tractioned towards the floor
4.    When the slack is removed from the lumbar spine, and the pre-manipulation position is determined to be comfortable, high-velocity, low-amplitude thrust is applied by the chiropractor.

The treatment is really effective if you have chosen the right chiropractic doctor for the treatment. However, before the chiropractor goes ahead and does the treatment, he or she will definitely do some important tests and after that they will be proceeding with the treatment.

The most important thing you need to take care of before you start your treatment is to check whether the chiropractor is the right option or not. Because not everyone is the right choice and you have to make sure that you are not inviting any other trouble by opting for wrong treatment.
