    OK then. Appparently the Chiro is getting you better so the Chiro is correct that your SI joint is hyper- mobile. Maybe there are disk issues but it is uncertain and so is whether or not surgery will help or hurt you in the long run.

    I would (and do myself) try every safe, reasonable treatment option first before surgery. IMO they do too many fusions these days. Why? because there $ in surgery.
  • I went in for a pain injection today and the pain doc said I should do the fusion.
    What kind of mobility should be expected after a fully healed multi level fusion

  • If your low back pain has lasted longer than 3 months, you will probably benefit from more intensive treatment.Sleeping with a pillow between the knees while lying on one side may increase comfort. Some doctors recommend lying on your back with a pillow under your knees.
