Please help. Ive had left side si joint issues for over a month now. Ive seen a chiro 4 times in week one. I went to the ER in the second week. Went to a specialist who took x-rays & mri 3rd week. Mri was fine. Xrays showed L4 fractured. But I KNOW & my physical therapist know its my si joint. Ive been in so much pain, it is getting better. I missed a month of work & finally the last two weeks have worked & been just delt with being uncomfortable. Im a full time dental assistant. But this week ive already missed two days this week again. Is this normal??? I have a good tolerance for pain, but sheesh. Somebody please tell me im not crazy. I have a great understanding boss. I am just so stressed & need good solid advice. Please???? Im begging.
You need to consult with a board certified spine surgeon for proper diagnosis and treatment options. Allowing a chiropractor to diagnose and adjust your spine, especially if there is truly a fracture is not a smart idea.
