si joint and problems it causes

I have a 3 year old si joint injury. It seems to cause other problems over time. I am told it can't be fixed. I now am dealing with rib pain which has been x-rayed and has been determined that it has gotten worse in the past year. I have been dealing with severe to mild vertigo, depending on the day. It is not inner ear related and I have appt to see a neurologist next week. This is a work comp case which my employer did not pay me income for a year. I have been forced to return to work or loose my job even though my pain is dramatically worsened by my janitorial work I do. I lost my court-case even though no one disputes I was hurt on the job and they acknowledge they are liable, but they feel they should no longer pay compensation. My attorney feels that a si-joint injury is hard to prove and that is why we lost the case. We are appealing. I can only try solutions that my Insurance or employer will pay for. Neither of which has been willing to pay for chiropractic solutions. I have to work to pay off bills incurred from not having pay for a year. When I get caught up on bills, even if I have to pay for it myself, I intend to try other method of treatment. My question is do you feel this si joint can be the cause of rib pain and vertigo. Also it was determined I had breast cancer while I was being treated for si joint injury. I am now 1-1/2 years cancer free and it has been ruled out that my rib pain is not cancer related problem.
