You may be asked to:

  • Bend your neck and mid and low back in all directions, to determine problems regarding spinal range of motion
  • Bend your knee to your chest while lying on your back.  This is a test to see if there is to see if there is hip, low-back, or muscle problems
  • Lie down and raise one leg – This is referred to as the straight leg test in which the chiropractor gently pushes on your raised leg to check for sciatic nerve irritation on tight hamstrings.

A common joint disorder involves the sacroiliac joint, which links the bottom of the spine with pelvic bone. This joint endures a lot of pressure and absorbs the shocks from the upper body.

Although it is a very strong and mostly stationary joint, the sacroiliac joint can become damaged or impaired. Sacroiliac joint dysfunction can mimic many of the symptoms of herniated lumbar disc. People with sacroiliac joint dysfunction typically complain of pain on one side of their lower back or buttocks. The pain can sometimes shoot down one or leg or both, sometimes extending all the way down to the foot.

Possible chiropractic treatments include:

  • Spine manipulation or adjustment
  • A joint injection (if pain warrants)
  • Analgesics
  • Exercise
  • Ice therapy
