I was in car accident 10 weeks ago.I fractured my coccyx,and superior and inferior ramii.Had X-Ray of pelvis 2 days ago,the bones are healing.The orthopaedic specialist and GP .has advised walking,and said no need for physio.I was wondering is there any exercises which might help me recover better,or should I go to a physiotherapist and see if they could advise strengthening exercises for my muscles.??? I would appreciate any advice or suggestions,thankyou.
Do not go for any workouts or exercise during the time of recovery. Walking will not disturb the proper growth of your lowest spine so mild walking is enough to start with. It will also clear you off stiffness.
After 4 weeks and taking a go ahead from your orthopedician you can go for complete physiotherapy, work outs etc.
