I have a posterior twisted pelvis- the right side of my pelvis is rotated backwards most likely due to and/or caused by all of the muscles on the right side of my body to be super tight. (I am also left handed and most of the muscles on the left side of my body are stronger).It started after I hurt my back telemark skiing about 6 months ago. I’ve tried chiropractic and it didn't seem to help, and my physio has got me stretching for 30-40 minutes every day s for the past 4 months focusing on muscle imbalances with no improvement. Most of the pain is in the lower back around the SI joint but also radiates into my left glute occasionally- and my left glute is super tender. I've also tried IMS and acupuncture and am thinking about trying massage (ART?). I have also been focusing on activating and strengthening my transverse abdominus and multifidus muscles in my core and back. I am a competitive Nordic ski racer and even though the pain isn't that bad it has limited my training and I need to get it better a.s.a.p.

What do you think is the best treatment?

Shawn hello and welcome to HW. We are not doctors we are a group with chronic pain as our common denominator. With that in mind we do share our treatments positive and negative and I am sure someone will here soon. Have you had an MRI to see if there are any underlying cause of your pain. I have suffered back pain most of my life and recently had a fusion for something I damaged who know when.
I again welcome you but I have no idea about your treatments as our conditions are so different.
Take care

I am having similar issues. I have found over the last few years that doing massage helps the best, but now I use it in conjunction with chiro and acupuncture. (My acupuncturist has used a TENS machine on me, which I love. I haven't been this loose in years!) I've also done some PT now and then to strengthen and learn what to do at home. It really is up to you. I am a big fan of having a large "medical staff" to help me out, so I have lots of people to ask questions and share their experiences.
