Damn....some of your replies are killing me. I need to make a decision and I'm just nervous of someone cauterizing my nerves. However, 10 years ago, I got injections in my neck to relieve pain and after 2 injections, I have not had pain since. Just hate having all these injections, needles going towards my spine

The pain comes from the pinched nerve in or around your hip socket. A good physical therapist can stretch and adjust your legs to relieve and get rid of the pain. Usually one leg is longer than the other when the space in your hips are not the same. There is a simple self stretch that you can do with a chair that can have the same effect.

i've had:

years of therapeutic massage
years of physical therapy
SI injections
temporary nerve block
massive amounts of pain killers
lyrica
nsaids
muscle relaxers
prolotherapy
trigger point injections
heat & stimulation therapy
chiropractic adjustments

the last two put together? = ahhhhhh. finally.

our experiences are very different, stillgoing, and i don't think it's fair to assume you know how my results were achieved. there is no one-solution-fits-all here...it is complex precisely for that reason.

okay, keep your fingers crossed. I visited a chiropractor today. I was really out of align, so hopefully with his help and exercises I'll get better.

I am with stretch13....I have suffered with SI joint pain for years, still do on occasion.

Was bedridden the entire summer of 1997 bc of SI joint and psoas muscle.

Chiropractic is what has helped me, you need to start with 3x per week....if I didn't have chiropractic, I'd be on mega doses of pain meds and possibly in a wheelchair.

Ibuprofen gives a bit of relief.

DO NOT ever consider surgery. I worked in a pain mgt. office for ten years, I cannot tell you the patients we saw bc of failed surgeries. The SI is the most difficult joint to treat, once you begin to feel better, do the stretching every day. Do not sit for long periods of time.

Good luck!

I also had SI injections as well, they did help.

Well, it is now almost the end of April and my hip hasn't gotten any better. Instead of SI Joint, my dr. thinks it is bursitis and IT band. He gave me an injection of numbing to see it that helped. For 4 days, I was pain free . I received another cortisone injection before our vacation to get through that week, but he suggested surgery to remove the bursa and release the IT Band. I just keep putting it off. In 2 weeks we have to move our DDs home from college and we are putting our house on the market. How the hell can I have surgery and try and recover with my house on the market???

It took so long after my shoulder surgery (and complications with frozen shoulder) that I'm scared to have surgery. I hate getting old.

I went to a sports medicine chiro. She had me good as new in no time. I injured my S1 by lifting the boxes of wood for our floor by myself. They were in the bed of truck and it started raining, no neighbors home, husband working so I had to unload myself. I went twice per week for about 2 months, then once per week, once every 2 weeks and now only every couple of month I go for an adjustment. We also have an inversion table that helps, especially if you have bulging disks, WS did.

I have/had a very similar problem. I was first treated for SI joint issues, then hip bursitis and arthritis. The injections provided little to no relief for me. I ended up having surgery to repair a torn ligament in my hip which also gave me very little relief. Years later, I still have pain in my hip but it is much less. I have no idea why.

I hope you find an answer for your pain. I know it can be very frustrating.

Injections just cover the pain, not fix the problem. I would definately recommend a good reputable chiro, if you are uncomfortable with that then see a DO that does manipulations. They are skilled, and are have the same amount of schooling and training as an MD, and take the same test. They are more holistic and take a balanced approach to treatments. Some meds, some manipulation, and voila all better.

I have been to a chiropractor and that didn't solve the problem. I'm afraid I have a torn ligament and only surgery will fix it. It just sucks, because last year I was walking 5-6 miles a day and lost 20lbs. I've gained about 2 back, but don't want to give up my walking.

The surgery I had for the torn ligament was not bad at all. It was much easier than the shoulder surgery I had.

Generally I recommend either adjustment by Chiropracter or manipulation from a DO (medical doctor trained in much of what chiropractors do). Physical therapy, home exercises and modalities such as heat. NSAIDS also help with inflammation. If problem is still chronic I'd add meds for chronic pain and then sent to pain specialist. Surgery is my DEAD last recommendation for that.

I think chiro is great for getting out of trouble when things really lock up, but repeatedly over the long term I'm not so sure it's a good thing.

I had MAJOR SI issues in my late 20s after a car wreck tweaked my scoliosis. Wound up walking with a cane for a few months after slipping a disc. Felt like ground glass in my SI joint and it was PAINFUL.

What worked for me (and stretch is right, everyone is different...) is a terrific deep tissue massage therapist who also manipulated the joints; a professional-hockey-player-type jacuzzi at the community centre with hot jets that could take meat right off the bone; and a class of yoga for bad backs.

All the therapy in the world won't help if you don't do your work on the mat.

After about a year and a half the initial pain subsided, had a couple more episodes in my early thirties, then nothing as painful since then.

My hips still go out of whack if I stop paying attention, but have not had the ground-glass feeling for many years.

It's painful!

I've had SI joint dysfunction since 1981, when I was in a car accident that fractured and displaced my left SI joint.

Chiropractic has been VERY effective for many of my pain issues, but not for my SI pain.

It was VERY difficult to get appropriate treatment---and took many years. I ultimately got a referral to an excellent pain specialist about 7 years ago. We use a combination of modalities, but the most effective, by far, has been cooled radiofrequency neuroablation. I've had this done a handful of times, and each successive treatment brings better and longer relief. If you have reasonable relief from intra-articular injections, then this might be worth talking about with your doctor. It's nice to have 6-12 months of relief.

I've suffered with SI joint pain for 15 years. Had some injection therapy which did help tremendously.

Now I go to a chiropractor regularly.

Listen to purplejacket, excellent advice.

Surgery should be the last resort.

ETA: Just read that you think it's ligment issues. Sorry to hear that!!


I was in a car accident when I was 15 y/o. I had the worst time type of whiplash to get - I had my head turned to look at the car hitting us and then my head was thrown forward. I will FOREVER have headaches if I don't go to my chiropractor.

Not all Chiro's are the same. My Chiro does not do any of the bone cracking stuff (NUCCA method). It's all pressure based and if it wasn't for him, I would have terrible headaches constantly. Originially when I first started going right after the accident and it was about three times/week. Now I average about once every 2-3 months depending on how rough I am on my body. For example, my neck doesn't like rollercoasters so I sometimes I need to go more often.

Some might not "believe in' Chiro's. All I know is it works and that's all I need to know!

CB,

I feel your pain!

Just wondering here? Do you, suffer from any arthritis in the rest of your body? I had the same problem with my SI and finally wound up having a THR (total hip replacement).

Mine arose due to EOA (Erosive osteoarthritis) EOA normally begins in the hands but can also affect other body joints. It's an aggressive disease and can cause all manner of pain in joints. When I had my THR, my surgeon said my hip joint just crumbled when he tried to remove it.

Not trying to scare you, nor am I saying you have EOA, but it may be worth your while to check out since you can't seem to find answers thru other treatments.

Good luck!

Well, I'm back and still haven't had surgery. I had scheduled surgery for bursa removal and to release my IT band (by cutting it). I talked with my massage therapist and she mentioned a couple of her clients with the same problem and they saw a PT in my town and he relieved all their pain. I went back to my dr. and he wrote a prescription for PT with a PT that primarily works with women. Man, she is awesome. She doesn't pull, push and pop, she manipulates the soft tissue and works to align the area. The first visit, she was manipulating my hip and I actually felt the whole pelvis move. She also feels, there is more going on all through my spine. I'm still having issues but have had major relief. It's amazing what happens when things get aligned up. Everytime I go in, my si joint is out of wack, now I just have to figure a way to keep it in place.

So glad I didn't proceed with surgery.
