"Twisted Pevis"

About: Southport & Formby District General Hospital

On returning to the UK from holiday I had an acute lower back and left hip pain, unable to walk unaided. I had to visit the A&E Department, yes there was a wait but nothing to extreme. I was fortunate enough to be seen by a Doctor that specialized in back and muscle injuries, they diagnosed a twisted pelvis, they gave treatment and also adivace on the way forwards without have any very expensive NHS treatment. I have followed up on their advise, now 8 days later, I can walk properly again, although I hav slight twinge, I have the cure for that.
