I know it seems silly, but I don't know what kind of doctor to go to for my SI pain. I read an article here that says a physiatrist is best. Is that were most people go?
I had a bad fall off of a horse last year, landed incredibly hard on my butt and fractured L1. What was never taken into consideration was the trauma done to the rest of my spine and butt. I did physical therapy and have the SI belt. I am no better. I wake up in extreme pain in SI area. I am taking Ultram for back and SI pain but am pretty miserable. My thoracic vertabrae also has a problem - numbness wrapping around under ribs and painful area on spine. I would like that adressed. I did have x-rays done at the time of the injury and they showed nothing going on aside from the L1 fracture.
What specialty doctor do you see for your SI pain? Has anyone tried PRP injections?
Thanks for any help.
