Physical Therapy for SI Joint Pain

Friday, February 01, 2013

I had my transformal epidural injection in December and it lasted a good month. It was great!!! I went back to my pain management doctor and he felt that it should have lasted a bit longer and maybe I need to go to physical therapy. I had gone in the past, but, they focused more on my hip bursitis and not my back pain. The physical therapist noted that it is my SI joint that is causing my pain. I had an SI joint injection Feb 2012. The pain has come back!!! I'm hoping that physical therapy will help me. I go back to the pain management doctor in six weeks.

    I hope the therapist can teach you so ways to alleviate the pain and strengthen the areas around the joint. Ask what kind of movements will be beneficial to you. Above all do the exercises they recommend especially at home besides just at the appointments since we know consistency helps in the long run.

    I sure hope you see more progress to report back to the pain management doctor.
    Best of Luck.
