Rehab doctor: Suggest seeking a physiatrist, but some osteopathic physicians have expertise in area if they practice OMT. In my opinion, avoid any surgery. Do employ use of a sacroiliac belt system when up and about. Might consider prolo-/ sclerotherapy for ultimate stabilization. Both manipulative and physical therapy can improve your quality of life.
