Hello to my fellow friends who have low back pain which could and most probably is your Sacroiliac and ilium joint. This is where your pelvis meets your tailbone.
I have had 6 injections in my lower spine and SI Joint. Orthopedics (most) ignore the SI Joint!!!!!!! So awful!
I was finally done with 3 Orthopedics so I began my own crusade to find a doctor who specialized in S I Joint education.
I found a recommended Neurosurgeon who was actually trained on this specific surgery through the SI Joint Infusion website.
He was amazing! I did not get any qualms about more pain shots or burning of the nerve ( which by the way are temporary). I live in St. Louis, Mo and EDITED
knew from all I had been through and suffered! He recommended the minimal non- invasive surgery which only took an hour! He put three implants (titanium) between the two joints. When I woke I had no pain whatsoever and still don't! I am only 3 weeks post op! You do have to be on crutches for 3 weeks so scar tissue builds around them!
NO screws!!!!!! I am now off of the crutches and have my life back!
Investigate and advocate for yourself! Go to the EDITED
research. There are videos of people and even a doctor who had this done and their testimonies! I even did a free webinar on this website by a doctor who is trying to get Orthopedics and other doctors on board since this is a HUGE problem! EDITED
