Forum Name: Bone trauma and fractures
Question: pelvis fractures
|johnson1987 - Tue Oct 27, 2009 10:38 pm||
I have 2 pelvis fractures and a tailbone from 2 years ago. Now I am in a lot of pain all the time. Seen family doctors and chiropractors and they cannot help. Is there anything or anyone who can help since it was so long ago?

It sounds like the bones are healed but you are suffering from chronic pain post fracture.
Two areas of treatment include pain management and physical therapy. Actually, the two co-exist in that physical therapy can help with pain control and then restore normal function.
It will be important to check hip muscle lengths and strength as well as leg length. Abnormalities in theses areas can cause chronic pain and dysfunction.
