SI joint/muscle knot
Does anyone else get muscle knots in the SI joint area?
I'm a 52 year old female. Last summer I pulled a groin muscle while playing sports. Went to an Athletic Therapist who suggested a groin injury is usually the result of an SI problem. So I went to a chiropractor who snapped, popped and manipulated my back in such a way that after several treatments like this, the pain in my SI joint was much worse that the pain in my groin. In other words, he did more harm than good. I also saw an osteopath. Still no relief. Started getting treatments from a Physio Therapist which improved my groin and SI joint to a certain point. I have had xrays, a CTsan and a bonescan with injection. All came back clear. There is quite a long waiting list to see an orthopediac surgeon so basically I'm just trying to rest it as much as possible. However, walking for more than a few minutes causes a huge muscle knot over my SI joint area which is extremely painful. Then I have to take a muscle relaxant and rest it again but as soon as I do anything, the cycle starts all over. Does anyone have any ideas as to what could be the cause of this muscle knot. Sometimes when I push deep on the muscle knot, it feels like I'm hitting a nerve and it is very painful. Also, if I sit crossed legged on the floor (like in a yoga type position) it feels like the muscle is working against me and causes pain in the SI joint. Any ideas as to what the problem could be? Thanks
