Your body has the best internal healing system every designed....if you let it do it's job. Take time off, read a book....life is a long journey, you don't need to max squat every step of the way.....setbacks happen (and will), so get used to time off here and there.

Very not fun! If it is just bruised, stay off it, stand as much as possible and ice it and it will heal.

If the SI bones are dislocated, they need to be manually readjusted. That requires a therapist going in rectally and pushing the the bones back into place. Very undignified, but at least then it will heal right.

Nah, SI joint can be manually corrected without rectal invasion...

Really, how? I'm sure the sports specialists would love to throw away their rubber gloves and never have to do THAT adjustment ever again!

How do you pull the coccyx back out into correct alignment without reaching inside to get ahold of it? It's embarrassing and uncomfortable to get set; but better that than suffer tailbone pain for decades as people commonly do after these injuries.

Ben, I've come across the internal coccyx adjustment, I haven't ever come across an internal S/I joint adjustment.

I'm thinking you and Steven are talking about the same things.

I did something similar many years ago (fell out of a tree onto my tailbone--on a rock ). I could not sit down for weeks, but was too embarrased to let my mom (who is a nurse) take me to the doctor. The pain eventually went away, but my coccyx is definitely misaligned today (almost 30 years later). All of which is a long way of saying, I feel your pain, but the pain will eventually go away. My only lasting problem is an inability to do situps on a hard surface (No big deal, I just use a GHD instead). So, take it easy and give your body time to heal.

This is one of the ways you can "shotgun" the pelvis if an SI joint has slipped to hopefully reset it:

I was taught a similar method along those lines.

I do this for my girl (as in the video) - set my elbow against one knee and palm against the other, and it shifts (audibly) back in place when she squeezes her knees toghether.

You can find legit medical advice on YouTube? That boggles my mind.

Fortunately, the injury is improving. I've refrained from squatting or pulling since Monday, and now I can lean back further without pain (still get it, just further back). Maybe it'll be another week or so until I'm pain free. Hopefully. Workouts without squats are lame.

Craig, what sort of injury did she have, and do you need to do that on a regular basis? The readjustment sounds sort of painful.


Garrett, my apologies for the over-dramatic reply. You caught me at a bad time with things that I really did not wish to hear.

Patrick,
No worries. As you get older and are still training, you'll get more and more familiar and comfortable with the folks that help fix the inevitable sports injuries.
