Another suggestion is they make an Icy/Hot sleeve that wraps around your waist. You slide the Icy/Hot pack in the sleeve and it has velcro. Though the smell isn't the greatest! But it works :) Definately look into the epidural injections. I had inflammation in my SI joint and I did 2 epis. It didn't work the greatest at the time but it had a cumulative affect and now I hardly have any trouble from the SI joint unless I over exert myself. Today I had finished my 3rd epi injection of my cervical bulges/herniations. It has done wonders for my neck! Though today I can't tell because my muscles are spasming from the injection - just a hint - if you do decide to to have the epis, don't tense your muscles up lol. I can't take anti-inflammatories either due to my UC but boy do I wish I could! I think that would be such a benefit ya know???
