Maigne's syndrome on X-ray.
Hi Dr. Lewis,
I really appreciated your posts about Maigne's Syndrome. I've had pain on my right side below my ribs and wrapping around my psoas area for years and am hoping to get evaluated for Maigne's syndrome as past treatment has not yielded long-term relief. Do you know of any providers in New York City who are knowledgeable on this syndrome?
I fear not, I live on the other side of the planet. Follow the usual rule when looking for a new dentist, chiropractor or architect. Talk to friends, acquaintances and family.
If you have a short leg there will often be an apex at the lumbosacral junction. Have someone kneel behind you with hands on the iliac crests and then have you bend forwards. Are they level and is there a curvature?
The Maigne's syndrome exercises are particuarly good. Every morning in bed before arising.
Let me know how you get on.
Dr B.R. Lewis DC
