Joint dysfunction can occur when joints become stiff and full range of
motion becomes restricted. Joint dysfunction is likely due to a previous
injury, poor posture, overuse, and underuse or a sedentary lifestyle. These
dysfunctions have numerous causes and can result in pain not only in the joint
itself, but also in other parts of the body due to overcompensation.
One common form of joint dysfunction we treat here at Restore Chiropractic is
SI (Sacroiliac) joint dysfunction. The SI joint is located where the base of the spine meets the pelvis. It causes both low back pain and hip pain and it also prohibits patients’ full range of motion. SI dysfunction is easily treated by chiropractic care, but this condition is unfortunately often misdiagnosed due to its symptoms being so similar to other conditions, mainly, sciatica or a herniated/bulging disc.
When you visit our office, Dr. Barlow will utilize specific adjustments designed to relieve SI dysfunction following a proper examination and diagnoses. This will mobilize the area relieving joint pain and discomfort while restoring proper joint motion.
