dc.description.abstract Research indicates the sacroiliac joint (prevalence of sacroiliac syndrome ranges from 19.3% and 47.9% (Toussaint et al., 1999)) as being the primary source of low-back pain in 22.5% of patients with back pain (Bernard et al., 1987:2107-2130). Treatment options that are available for the treatment of low-back pain include allopathic (Hellman and Stone, 2000), and manual therapies such as hydrotherapy and traction (Cull and Will, 1995). It has been found that allopathic interventions have been less effective than spinal manipulative therapy, even with spinal manipulative therapy having various modes of application (e.g. side posture and drop piece manipulations) (Gatterman et al., 2001). Drop table thrusting techniques were found to be effective for patients with neuromuskuloskeletal problems such as facet syndrome (Haldeman et al., 1993), however, it is still not known which specific drop piece technique is the most appropriate for sacroiliac syndrome. Thus it is important to ascertain the clinical effectiveness of the technique as certain conditions prevent the patient from being positioned in the conventional side posture for treatment of sacroiliac syndrome (White, 2003; Pooke, 2003; Hyde, 2003; Pretorius, 2003; Haldeman, 2003; Cramer, 2003; Engelbrecht, 2003). Therefore this study aims at determining the efficacy of a maintained contact drop piece manipulation technique. en_US
