Often, a relatively simple act, such as stepping off a curbing unexpectedly, is sufficient cause for such injury. Since relatively few people know exactly what the "sacroiliac" is we de- fine '* Os the i° int betwee n the spins and the hipbones. The sacrum is the triangular spinal segment that bears the upper body weight; the two iliac or hip bones, one on either side, have slight movement with the sacrum as the sacroiliac joints For hundreds of years these joints were believed immov. able We. know now that, under certain conditions, these ports can undergo slight slippage - a possible safety factor provided by Nature to avoid fracture of an extensive -; gion of bone. The sacroiliac slip or strain usually r-.ccurs from overstrain, falls or sudden tw.sts with pain and other distressing symptoms to be found in the low back or legs. Fortunately the symptoms most often appear Immediately. Immediate treatment in such cases by the chiropractic physician can correct the trouble almost as quickly -as it appeared. Delay in treatment may result in development of lumbago or sciatica. In next week's health column we will discuss th. chiropractor', method of affording reljef and correc tion m thi, painful condition which ha, become so widespread in our modejrt life.
