Lots of chiros will see you without x-rays. In fact, a chiropractor shouldn't HAVE to rely on x-rays-- it's a sign they don't know what they're doing that much. I mean, an x-ray is helpful and can be a great tool, but it's not 100% necessary. My chiro started seeing me when I was pregnant, no x-rays, no problems. My previous chiropractor almost never did x-rays for anyone (he was older and very experienced.)
For those who are asking for more tips, I suggest gentle stretching if you can (I know sometimes it hurts too much, in which case, don't, but if you CAN stretch it might help it from getting much worse) and also GET REALLY GOOD SHOES. You know, supportive, non-heels, fit well. I was very skeptical that this would ehlp out that much, but that's what my chiropractor advised, and it's the only thing I've been doing differently that I know of that could have made the pain go away. My hip/pelvic pain has been totally gone for at least a week now I think! Maybe longer-- I lose track of time . . .
Oh, try for good posture, too. When you're in pain and limping, that can be hard though!
