For the last 2 weeks i had a pain in my hip thinking it was a hip joint but i have recently had an xray and the hips are fine nad my husband had a look at my posture and straight out he said that my pelvis is twisted and just from looking from the xray he can tell ,,now he is no doctor but i do trust him as he has problems in his back as well, Tomorrow i also have a ct scan to see what is wrong with the lower back,,the problem is the pain is not in my back it is in my left hip as like someone has got my hip and pushed it up and out and it sometimes it is very painful ,now i dont know if it is my back or hip. My doctor says it is not my hip as it is fine but the leg movement is very limited, sometimes i can walk and its fine but then it plays up and that is it for the rest of the day its sore and very painful ,,,,I am seeing my doc tomorrow after the ct scan to see what he thinks as well....if anyone would like to comment then you can and let me know on what you think as well.
about a year ago i started having pain in my left side of my hip to this day it has not stoped i have gone to many doctors and all they have told me is that i need mental help or its in my head or im addicted to narcotics and i just am trying to seek some out i have no help with this . SIJD > is a very painful thing there has to be some way to fix it out there but to this day with tones of research i still cant get it fixed and no doctors beleive me i have had ct mri and i am going to tell the doctor to do an x-ray on me if he will. but i just wanted to write to you guys and tell you that i feel you and know what your going through i deal with this every night. My mom does not believe me Ether because im only 23 and cant have this kind of thing .
Stick in there someday we will find a fix for it.
Thanks for starting such an informative thread
I was diagnosed with SIJD today by my PT. She "corrected" it today, the first time I ever had a SIJD correction. I've had lower back/butt pains in my right side for the last 6 months. Sometimes the pain goes down my leg, but its not bad pain by any means, did you experience this at all?
I've had X-rays done which checked out ok by my doctor. I'm schedualed for MRI's next month.
Heres my X-ray pics if you are interested, any imput on them would greatly be appreciated. Can X-rays help diagnose SIJD?
Since she has corrected my pelvic, I do feel alot better... I think. The next few days will be the real test. When she "corrected" my SI joint, it didn't take very long at all. She got down at eye level with my pelvis, put one finger on the front and one on the back of my pelvis.
Then had my lay down. Then she puched on the top on my pelvis towards the ground, then she pushes on top of the illiac crest towards my feet and that was it. Is this sufficient? Considering on Richard's DonTigny's website he says to adjust it a few times, from left to right and back again.
My PT just did the right (bad) side and didn't even touch my left SI joint.... Isn't she suppose to do both sides?
Hope to hear from you expatient since its been awhile from your last posted
Thanks so much for starting this very informative thread
I have had lower back pain for 6 months now. I have got an X-ray which has been cleared by my doctor and I have an MRI next month. The pain is in the lower right side about 2-3 inches from the spine and is right on the crest of the illium. It feels like a pulled muscle and the pain moves into my butt and across to my hip area. Sometimes I get these little pains down my leg to my foot but nothing that bad at all, did you get these little pains down your leg at all?
For the past 2 months I've been seeing a couple PT. The first lady didn't help me at all and certainly didn't adjust my pelvis at all. But she did say that my left joint is doing nothing which makes my right joint do all the work and in turn cause the pain. The lady I'm seeing now is actually adjusting the pelvis and my back does feel 100% better. I'm just to scared to really test it out, if you know what I mean. It's only been 2 days since I've had my first pelvic alignment. How do I know the SI is in the proper position?
Currently I'm really happy to finally have some answers to my LBP. I have this little rig up for my computer chair which transfers the weight off my joints and on to my hamstrings. It's just a steel pole with a towel around it, works really good How do I know my SI joint is in alignment? Just by if I feel pain or not? I'm not sure yet how to put the joint back into place myself because my PT hasn't showed me that yet. I'm so new to this SIJD thing.
Is there any advice for a fellow SIJD patient new to the game? How easy is this to correct? And I'm sure theres many variables to that question... I'm 28 and my back pain never got that bad so I'm hoping I caught it early enough. Also I'm in good shape (but slowed down allot because of this BP), only 165lbs at 5'9.
I hope to hear from you soon Expatient and any info you have for me would be greatly appreciated
Yeah I've had a twisted pelvis for since I was 10. My dad screwed me up. Always end gaining. Now that I'm retired I don't have to play that game. So my advise to you is don't follow their rules. You have to stop EVERYTHING. Just imagine yourself the most popular person in high school. Everything handed to you. Do the Alexander Technique thing. Forget your past. You've done everything wrong don't you know. So from this point lengthen your spine and take tramodol. Forget what you've done in the past. Do you for a moment think that Blanca Vlasic, Elton John, Paul McCartney, J Lo, Ringo Starr, (pick a great person) thinks like you? Do you? Of course not. They have dropped their baggage of sour thought or never had it to begin with. Oh maybe a little but not to the extent that you have the thoughts of the sour people. Ha. Give up trying to change the world. Forget the spirituality that you know. It's there of course but you have to drop all the crap that got you where you are today. Put your pants on begining with the other foot. Go down the stairs begininng with the other foot. Fold your hands differently. Lay down on your back with it lengthened. Don't bother regarding the news. That's a ploy to get you to care and emote like you used to. Drop your old friends. They want you like you used to be. They need you to lean on and push you down. Oh you can do it for them, stay the way you are, but why? Change baby, change.
The pelvis tells everyone what you are. Probably sexless. You need to lengthen your spine and lengthen your lat and trapizee muscles. Those are the culprets that are twisting your pelvis. Don't you know that getting squashed emotionally and physically has screwed you up. Get Rolfed.
