Lightbulb SI joint instability

My low back pain has been going on for a year after a fall and twist as I put on my jeans. Nothing has worked to resolve the issue. In fact, the physical therapy, massage therapy has made it worse. Any success in resolving the issue? What exercise works best? Just received SI joint block injection but pain is still there,

Re: SI joint instability

Welcome to the board. Did you have any imaging done, MRI? Have you received any diagnosis?

Re: SI joint instability

Yes, I have had an MRI, no significant abnormality in spine itself, but SI joint inflammation which has not responded to massage, acupuncture, deep tissue and now some gain with cortisone shot . However, my healing from shot is over 3 weeks, with the surrounding tissue still sore.

Re: SI joint instability

Has a second injection been suggested? Sometimes the first one begins the healing and it takes one or two more to resolve the issue.

If the ligaments are lax, you might consider prolotherapy.
