Mild back and hip pain. History of vertical sacral fracture. Solution for pain?

I sustained a vertical sacral fracture over 3 months ago. I had 24 physical therapy sessions which I completed about 2 weeks ago. I have mild but infrequent lower back and hip pain does not require medication . My legs remain weak and a little shakey. I walk for 30 minutes daily or use a stationary bicycle and do the recommended exercises, but I haven t improved. Will this ever go away?

Hi dear thanks for the query
During the period of three months the fractures might have healed and in near normal position. The remnant pain could be due to some form fibrous healing around the sacral joints. Some times could be for prolonged periods but it is not a serious problem. Regarding the weakness in you legs I would advice you get nerve conduction studies of both lower limbs after consulting your orthopaedic doctor. Continue the recommend exercises and do not loose hope. You will be having good recovery.
