Yes, Did This Happen When You Fell On Your Butt?
“Falling on your butt may cause you serious problems,” says Boulder Chiropractic Clinic’s Dr. Tom Groover. “Such upward jolts to your pelvis frequently injure your sacroiliac joint ligaments. These common percussive forces will miss-align your sacrum (the spine’s triangular base, each side of which joins with your ilia) and your illia (two large hip bones). The junctions between your illia and sacrum are your sacroiliac joints, misalignments of which cause considerable problems.”
“Healthy sacroiliac joints are structurally and functionally symmetrical. Each ilium fits precisely with the sacrum and the ilia align precisely with each other. Subluxations (misalignments less than dislocations) of these sacroiliac joints cause structural distortions and movement asymmetries. Falling-on-your-butt-traumas cause both simple and complex sacroiliac joint subluxations.”
Dr. Groover describes how these injuries will manifest into symptomes. “These sacroiliac joint subluxations irritate your joint tissues, nerves and muscles. The results: acute and chronic sciatica including low back, hip, pelvis and leg pain. Pelvis subluxations really stress your nervous system.” He explains, “Some subluxations are simple and easily diagnosed and treated by most chiropractic and osteopathic doctors. Others are much more difficult.”
The Majority of New Patients Coming to Our Clinic Have Sciatica.
“More than half our new patients have subluxation-induced sciatica — that radiating pain down your butt, hip and leg. Many have non-radiating low back, hip and leg pains. The larger majority of these patient have previously been treated for their conditions. Some have been to many medical doctors, physical therapists, osteopathic doctors and chiropractic doctors. They often complain about spending their time, effort and money for little or no results.
Chiropractic College Was Just the Beginning.
Dr. Groover explains, “Chiropractic college really was the beginning of my chiropractic education. The curriculum there gave me the fundamental language and perspective for life-long learning and professional development. The diagnostic and treatment procedures for pelvis and lumbar spine subluxations I learned were excellent. Surprisingly, those procedures didn’t work for many of my patients. Now these patients enjoy great results from the knowledge, understanding and procedures I have developed refined during my many years of clinic practice.”
