My Sacroiliac and Me

Doc says I should get some PT and take some Ibuprofen.

As the days become months and the months become years, this could become The Blog of Mike's Aches and Pains.

Wheeeee!

I have a pinched nerve in my toe.

I'll be sure to add both you and Grace to my dirty photos newsletter.

A dirty photos newsletter. How quaint. ;)

Welcome to my personal hell. I've written about mine as well, but I actually solicited assvice, I mean advice.
I've never been to a quac-I mean chiropractor, but am scheduled for first visit this Monday. If it works, do ya wanna know about it?

maaaan...I have that, too. I've had an epidural steroid injection into the joint (it hurt so bad I said cusswords to that doctor I never even realized I knew!), did PT, and then did chriropractic. Nothing has worked. I have no idea why. My MRI doesn't show anything except for some degenerative disc...

So all of that to say that I feel your pain, my friend. Literally.

I just finished several weeks of PT at TN Orthopedic Alliance. Susie was my therapist and was great.

Thanks for all of the helpful words. All advice is welcome, be it PT or chiro-related.

Onward: It's nice to find your blog. I'm adding it to my Reader now.

I highly, highly recommend Dr. Chad McClellan. He's a quac-chiropractor. I tell him he's a quack all the time, and he says, "I know, but you feel better, don't you?" And he laughs when I let loose a torrent of f-bombs when he cracks my bones. He's in Berry Hill, in the Applebees strip mall. Tell him I sent you. He fixed me when I couldn't walk or sit down. His patient base is heavily loaded with hot women. It makes the wait easier.

Any and all advice really should include the phrase, "heavily loaded with hot women."

Thanks.

Hi,
I went to quackopractor and it hasn't made a real difference yet after four adjustments. But she swears it will get better soon. From the X-rays she took, I at least know what my bones and joints look like and where the compression is. Maybe you should go just for the X-rays.
Anyway, if I'm not feeling better in a month, I'm switching to a good bone/back doctor.
Good luck with your sacroiliac.

onward: Thanks. My doc is sending me to a physical therapist. I haven't gotten around to making the appointment yet. I might just Google "sacroiliac" and "physical therapy" and see what kind of stretches and such I should do.

Good luck with your pain. ;)
