I am a 25 yo male formly active in sports. I have sharp pain originating in the SI joint area(i think) and it swaps sides. I have been to the physical thereapist, chiropracter, and had MRI, and X-rays. The pain will leave for a few months then return, but over the past few months I have not been able to fully recover before the pain returns again. Basically, the pain is returning more frequently. I have difficulty getting out of bed, tieing my shoes, walking(pain radiates down the back of the leg only to the knee, the lower leg feels different too though). I have been told it is either SI joint subluxation, piriformis syndrome, or something else. I perform some stretching and PT exercises which seems to help. I am depressed due to my inability to do anything active and afraid this problem may not allow me to work as a general dentist due to the constant bending over patients.
1. Any suggestions for exercises, stretches, strategy, or specialists to visit?
2. Do SI joint injections works(anyone with experience)?
3. Are there special chairs for people who sit at work all day? What about SI joint belts?
Any other advise/experience would be greatly appreciated.
