    Any way that back pain causes pub pain?

    I have been to many doctors and they can't find anything wrong. I fell on my front two months ago and have some pubic pain only when I sit and can't ride the bike since. It has been suggested that if I were to have my back adjusted it could erase my pubic pain. Is this idea crazy or what?

    Can't help you, but I once got some back pain falling in a pub.

    .
    Yes.....
    On the other hand, if your wallet is adjusted enough, the pain may get worse.
    If your opinion differs from mine, ..........Too bad.

    Buying parts to hang on your bike is always easier than getting fit.

    You could have bruised a nerve, which takes a LONG time to heal. A few years ago I slipped off my pedal and smashed my taint on the nose of my saddle. I had NO sensation in my wedding tackle for about two months. Dr's all said there was nothing wrong, all the plumbing and hydraulics worked fine, and it would eventually come back. It did, but that was a crappy two months.

    Try some yoga to stretch out your back. It may not help, but it can't hurt. Here's a good book to start with for yoga and back issues.

    Did they make sure you didn't fracture your pelvis - specifically around the symphysis (that's where the two halves come together at the midline)?

    Ah, the usual chiropractic response: good for insurance claims and chiropractors' wallets.

    What does that have to do with anything, though? Einstein smoked a pipe, but I'm going with the "smoking is bad for you" camp, even so.

    Appeal to authority is either a fallacious argument, or an attempt to sell something. Which are YOU doing (this accusation, by the way, is another fallacious argument tactic)?

    Seriously, though, it's true that a lot of chiropractors have made a hash of the field's reputation by selling a lot of unnecessary procedures, insisting that patients visit multiple times a week or their condition will come back, and generally claiming that chiropractic will fix any and all ailments. The discipline also suffers from a number of non- or semi-scientific bases for its claims.

    So there are some responsible, sensible chiros out there who only claim to do what chiropractic has been actually proven to help--lower back and directly related neuromuscular problems, but they have an uphill battle thanks to the quacks who long dominated their field and ruined their reputation.

    Um, I guess low-grade sarcasm doesn't translate well to the 'net; gotta learn how to use those emoti-thingies Me, I can hardly spell "chiropractor."

    Seriously, I've had good luck with chiros, but I've seen some that I thought were bullshat, just like a lot of M.D.s, D.O.s, etc. I can even buy into the guys that tie, say, headache pain to back alignment (it's all neural network, right).

    My favorite was the bonecracker that offered to give everyone at a party I was at free "adjustments," and this was for the guys at the party as well, so I don't think that he did it just to get his hands on...Omigod!

    I've successfully seen good Drs of chiropractics before. A qualified chiro is, unfortunately IME, hard to find. As stated, there are a lot of quacks out there with all kinds of crazy bs "cures," gimmicks, fancy devices and procedures. You should always interview (ask questions) of ANY doctor before you see them. Also, check references, especially when it comes to chiropractic.

    I'm no doctor. A few ideas; Were you checked for a hernia? Have it rechecked, it may be small. I had one from an accident and the pain after riding was bad. In my case I got pain in the area in front and to the side of my bladder (above your boys and to the side). It was always worse after any physical activity.

    Also broke my tailbone, ~5 yrs of not being able to sit comfortable. That didn't hurt in the front, it hurt on the backside right around here, )*(. You get the idea.

    It'll probably get better if you let him/her adjust your back again.
