Just checking to see what other peoples opinions are on this. I had physical therapy after my second microdiscectomy and had a good therapist. She did some manual adjustments on my si joint and it helped some. I'm a bit nervous now, though due to a recent back flare that if I go back to PT now, it will make it worse. Is adjustment ok to do on someone that has disc surgery before? What about adjusting the SI joint? I'm taking Decadron for the next week and I'm going to start Accupuncture. Would you recommend starting one before the other or together? I am trying everything I can to avoid going to surgery though some days its hell. The sciatica pain is terrible and I have to work and still do stuff around the house. It feels like a constant tooth ache in my piriformis muscle.
