Re: TWISTED PELVIS

I was diagnosed with a tilted, rotated pelvis about 13 years ago. I went to eight different doctors (including a chiropractor, which, by the way, was the one who diagnosed the problem in the end, an orthopedic doctor, a neurologist, a physical therapist, a physiatrist, etc.) Adjustments only helped temporarily, due to the fact that I (and maybe you too) have what's called hypermobility and can not stabilize. I have had cortisone injections, adjustments, a back brace, a lift in one shoe, traction, weeks of anti-inflammatories, acupuncture, and have taken trazadone (a muscle relaxer). What helped the most was the acupuncture and the trazadone (the latter of which I took for 4 years prior to my first pregnancy). Also, I strongly agree that strengthening the stomach muscles helps strenghten the back. After I did this, my back pain was almost non-existent, and now I only suffer with it from time to time (times of stress, long periods of sitting, etc.) I really hope this may help some of you to get out of pain!!!
