How do I treat a stress fracture of the iliac (pelvis)?

ItWillTakeSomeTime. Avoid doing whatever caused it until it heals completely (unless you jumped out of a taxi cab going 60 mph on the highway).Avoid any motions that cause pain, if possible. Use Tylenol (acetaminophen) and/or Motrin for pain. If it hurts to lie down to sleep,try adjusting yourself with pillows and use a foam pad under the pelvic area.When you are able to work,talk to your boss about it.You may need frequent rests.
