Very uncomfortable!

 We had chiropractic treatment yesterday. A regular 3 monthly plan. My left back/hip area has been very uncomfortable for a while. My left leg was 1" shorter than my right. She diagnosed a restricted/fixated sacroiliac joint and began treatment.

Boy was it painful. I thought she might have needed to give me treatment for a locked jaw afterwards, so hard was I gritting my teeth. The treatment involved using her elbow with her full body weight behind it. 1 minute hard and deep push into my hip area, a quick rest, then she repeated it twice more. Then I had to get up, no mean feat, and do a couple of exercises against the wall to check if it had helped.

I will be back in another 3 months unless I need to go earlier. I felt very sore and bruised afterwards. Slept well but woke up a couple of times in pain:(

  1. Oh dear - that doesn't sound too comfortable for something that's supposed to make you better!

    1. Certainly wasn’t. Normally any treatment gives instant relief. I think this may take a few days.

  2. You're braver than me, I couldn't stand that. I hope it's feeling a bit better now.

    1. No worse anyway. Had quite a walk today which was fine. Getting shoes on and off is difficult though.

  3. A massage is good but sometimes it does hurt a bit. I hope you feel better. I have been having a massage every 2 months and it helps my muscles become less tight in neck and arm. When my therapist finds out what needs done she will ask if it is too painful and if I say yes, she will not be so hard on it. Hope you are having a good day!

    1. I had a deep massage the previous week. For the most part it was soothing until she reached that area:( Still sore but I have a massage every 6 weeks so hope to last out!
