Default SI problems

This is my 1st post so if it doesnt look right sorry, getting the hang of this site.

I had a pelvic and SI slip that turned into dysfunction due to a horseback riding accident. It was bad enough I had a 2 inch difference shortening one leg. It was quite painful, as im sure you are aware. Im not really sure if this would apply to you but have you tried chiropractic care and physical therapy? PT alone didnt touch it, I will admit that, but I had good luck using both.
I visited the Chiropractor 3x a week for 2 months plus exercises to strenghten the muscles that would help stabilize. The only real time I have an SI problem now is during mid pregnancy but the SI belt helped even during that. They were seriously talking about the stabilization surgery for me but I wasnt so comfortable with the idea. Im glad now I didnt. Plus if chiropractic didnt work I didnt really loose out on anything. I could still have the surgery if it didnt work.
