I went to physical therapy yesterday. I was a bit skeptical this lady could really help me, but I am/was desperate so I went. She had me sit in the most comfortable over stuffed leather recliner as she asked me a bunch of questions. She had to bend, walk, etc. and taught me an exercise with a ball between my knees and a couple strategies for transitions from sitting or laying to the standing position (which is where the real pain is).
But then, she pulled out a two inch thick belt. She put it low on my waist and tightened it up while I was standing. Instantly, the pain subsided. I started laughing like a crazy person I was so relieved. "Can I take this home today?!" I blurted. I did get to walk out of there with it on, limping less and walking faster. The only problem is when I take it off the pain is back. Possibly worse, or maybe it's such a relief to not have the pain for a while that it just seems worse. I go back again in three weeks. Hopefully stronger than I am now so I can do more exercises that will help this pelvis fuse back properly.
