Arthritis from an old pelvis fracture

Can you help with the above. Pelvis fractured in 1966 and is not healed properly. I now have arthritis there and am getting unable to work due to the pain in my back, pelvis and back. Any ideas?

Have you tried physiotherapy? If not, perhaps consult your GP and ask for a referral. Your physiotherapist should be able to help with targeted exercises, manual therapy (if indicated) and other pain relieving modalities, including modifications to activities/ergonomics and pacing advice.

Hi,

Physiotherapy and Biomechanics assessment. May also need hip X-rays.
