I'm 37 weeks pregnant and had and adjustment and the Webster Technique done on me last Monday. I was pain free when I walked into the office and just wanted to get everything is good alignment to help make for an easier labor. The chiropractor adjusted the left side of my sacrum. By the next day, I had incredible pain in my right sacrum/illiac area. By day 3 I couldn't walk. Its day 6 and I can walk a few steps at a time again, but the pain in unbearable. Any time I bear weight on my right foot, it hurts. And there is a popping sound/sensation in my right hip/sacrum every time I walk on the right leg. When I squat the popping sound from my right sacrum area is loud.
Could this be my SI joint? Don't know if I should go to another chiropractor or to a physical therapist. How long could this take to heal or before I can walk pain free again?
Im so upset this has happened. This is a very important time in my pregnancy to be walking to help the baby engage in my pelvis to enable labor and a vaginal delivery. With my first child, the baby didn't engage in my pelvis and I my cervix didn't dilate until I got my hips aligned (that chiropractic experience was pain free) and walked for 3 hours two days in a row. That initiated labor. I want very badly to have another vaginal delivery. I'm 37 years old and my husband I want to try for a 3rd child. If I have a C-section and we consequently have to screw around waiting another year before even trying to conceive we may run out of time and the opportunity for a 3rd child. I am beyond pissed at this chiropractor.******************************************************************** Welcome to Spine-Health
It would be very helpful if you could provide us with more details. So many times we read about members who have different tests and they all come back negative. The more clues and information you provide, the better chances in finding out what is wrong,
Here are some questions that you should answer:
- When did this first start?
- Was it the result of an accident or trauma?
- What doctors have you seen? (Orthopedic, Neurosurgeon, Spine Specialist, etc)
- What Conservative treatments have you had? Which ones?
- What diagnostic tests have you had? And their results (MRI, CTScan, XRay, EMG, etc)
- What medications are you currently using? (details, dosage, frequency, etc)
- Has surgery been discussed as an option? (If so, what kind)
- Is there any nerve pain/damage associated?
- What is your doctor’s action plan for treating you?
Providing answers to questions like this will give the member community here a better understanding
of your situation and make it easier to respond.

What could be good for someone could spell disaster for another.
You should also consult your doctor to better understand your condition and the do’s and don’t’s.
It is very important that new members (or even seasoned members) provide others with details about their condition(s). It is virtually impossible to help another member when all the details we have areI’ve had this for years, it hurts, I cant move my shoulder – what could this be, what treatment should I get?
Diagnosing spinal problems can be very difficult. In many ways its like a game of clue. Especially, when the diagnostic tests come back negative – no trouble found! Then its up to the patient and the doctor to start digging deeper. The doctor is like a detective. They need clues to help them move along. So, you as the patient need to provide the doctor with all sorts of clues. That is like it is here. Without having information about a condition, its impossible for anyone here to try to help.Specific comments :Personal Opinion, not medical advice :
