Hi! I joined this so I could post a message in the forum "SI Joint Pain is Ruining My Life", but I can't figure out how to do it. Feel free to re-post it there so those in need can see it. I too suffered from SI pain for a long time, coupled with a very aggravated piriformis. I had been to doctors, specialists, physical therapists, chiropractors and a pain specialist with little luck. I then stumbled upon Active Release Therapy It took about 9 months of one or two visits a week to get me completely out of the woods (it also took a very long time for me to get help for the problem, so things were really messed up). I still have SI joint issues, but they do not control my life the way they used to. Now if I have a problem I go in for a tune up (maybe once every 6 weeks on average) and that helps set things right. ART therapy can be painful at times, and at first may feel counter productive (in my case breaking up knots of tissue that were trapping a nerve, which is painful but allows the tissue to then grow back correctly). I believe ART can be performed by both chiropractors and physical therapists. It is a relatively new technique and many are not certified in it, so if you haven't experienced it yet I urge you to give it a try and stick with a few weeks to really see results.
