2 and a half years ago I started with severe right buttock and low back pain. My GP gave me NSAIDS which didn't help, saw 2 osteopaths who didn't help, then onto a chiropractor who diagnosed right side ilium was stuck in anterior rotation. 5 sessions later it was still stuck and much more painful and the left side was hurting too. A second chiropractor had a try using passive alignment, no help. Onto a physiotherapist, she agreed with the diagnosis and rotated the ilium back on the right side but it wouldn't stay there. I also didn't get the huge amount of pain relief from this people had said I would but this physio said to keep unlocking it myself (she showed me how) and follow an exercise programme she gave me.
Fast forward 9 months and after many, many sessions and mobilisations of this joint I still had severe pain in the right joint, pain in the left but also inflamed Iliotibial bands, tight painful rectus femoris, posterior hip pain, super tight hamstrings especially medial, heel pain and right side shoulder pain. She gave up so I moved on. The next physio said the exercises had been a waste of time as I was doing glute maximus ones with the hamstrings and glute medius ones with the TFL or sartorius. She also said the SI joints weren't locked but weren't stable and advised glute medius exercises (done carefully to avoid other 'helpful' muscles) and core stability training.
After 8 months of core training and glute medius work I've got very little improvement, the right glute medius hasn't got any stronger at all although the left one has improved. My transversus abs are working alot better but my multifidus at sacrum level is still very reluctant to work, my right side external oblique does not contract when it's supposed to but the left one is very strong. I have nearly no muscle on the right side of the spine as opposed to the left, and I tend to stand with the left foot forwards and externally rotated, left side of pelvis forwards and left shoulder forwards so it's almost like I'm standing sideways but with my feet and head facing forwards, when I'm stood like this I feel straight unless I actually look at what a twisted mess I'm really in!
I feel like my spine and pelvis are badly rotated but nobody seems to be able to advise me, I've had a lumbar and this is fine but I can't get my GP interested in referring me anywhere. I still do core stability training, and wear an SI belt all the time, but my pelvis isn't stabilising. Anyone got any ideas? I'm desperate for help and still in alot of pain and don't feel like I'm ever going to get better.
Thanks in advance.
