Hi all i have not yet read through all topics so apologies if this relates to any previous conversations.
In january 2009 i was involved in a car crash where a van hit me from behind after almost 3 years of pain and legal stresses, mdical examinations etc, a specialist who i saw for the second time around a month ago told me it COULD be my sacroiliac joint, i have read through other sites and majority of people commenting have only had this problem for days or months at the most. I have not seen anyone as yet where this problem has been ongoing for years.
The information i am after is can this problem be sorted after such a long period? as all the usual heat/cold methods stretches/excersises help for maybe hours or at the very most a couple of days of relief.
During my 3 years i have seen 2 specialist doctors, 2 pyscologists, 1 physiotherapist, 1 pain management specialist and my GP.
All of which have given me treatment (not for SI joint pain) but general treatment without success i am now told i need to see a chiropractor to help manipulate the joint from very little research i have read that they can "pop" the joint which provides relief but can just as easily "pop" back out again and be troublesome.
I have absolutely no idea about this and my main concern is obviously regaining full movement and to be pain free again so ANY advice at all would be a massive help.
