Oh My Aching Sacroiliac!

OK, I am belly aching...but oh my aching sacroiliac.  I tromp all over France last month without a problem...then a cough, poor body mechanics and age must have caught up to me.  I know that when I get home I am definitely going to have to figure out what to do...because I have got some homespun house construction to do!  I have had injections before but after the latest news headlines...I think I will pass.  And, I have gone to PT...I really need to drop some pounds that might really help...but what I am asking is...have any of you ever used a chiropractor?  I have not and thus am a little scaredy cat!

Maybe it's that I am dragging out my birthday celebration...and I am just getting old?!

  1. I go to a Osteopathic doc, so he does my back every month. I have also gone to therapy, I find that is the best solution, they ease the pain and work on building up your strength so you feel better in the long run and you have stretches and exercises you can use whenever you have a flare up. I know people who get snapped and they have to keep coming back, and I also know that woman are more prone to strokes by having their necks snapped, so not worth it to me;)

  2. Ii can sympathize.....I am a ER nurse. Have never believed in or been to a chiropractor but developed severe sciatica. In fact forced me to retire. Did a summer of PT eith some relief but discussed this option with my therapist. He recommened a well respected one. After a month I have dramatic improvement. I also did a Standard Process cleanse snd detoxification. Lost 11 LBS.Am mow eating whole and organic foods. It has been a major lifestyle change for the good. Hope to put the type 2 diabetes and HTN in remission with continued weightloss. Christine

  4. I am a therapist by day and a quilter/stitcher in my free time...I would highly recommend finding an OT or a PT in your area who does craniosacral therapy and/or visceral manipulation...very gentle, relaxing intervention but can be very, very effective at getting to the root of the problem...hope you find some relief....always enjoy your blog

  6. Oh poor dear! I have had two injections,PT, and minor surgery on my back. These days I take Aleve when I have a flare-up, with good results. I've never gone to a chiropractor either, for the very same reason.If you do go, let me know about your experience...Good luck.

  8. I have been seeing a physio for 20 years & have just this year moved to seeing an osteopath who also teaches pilates.
    I have been getting great results!
    Don't think I would go for a chiropractor?? Prefer to go the gentle route myself.
    Good luck!
