I have a similar issue I’ve been working on.  Mine started 2 years ago.  I pulled my groin surfing, then tweaked my back a few weeks later doing a heavy clean.  Ever since, pelvic obliquity, SI, low back, QL, occasional baby toe tingling/numbness.  Looking for reasons why the pain wouldn’t go away, I found an inguinal hernia. I’m not sure if they are related.  Long story short, I’ve developed some gnarly compensation patterns to protect the groin/hernia/SI all on the right side.  I think the key here was that I’ve continued to work around the injury, so my movement patterns have really changed.  

I saw a chiro for the first year, then another chiro, 2 PT’s, X-rays and I make a pretty solid effort at the MWODs. Unfortunately those didn’t work. Well, chiro maybe to keep my hip in alignment, but it doesn’t last long at all.  
My current plan is, stop Crossfit, 10 session Rolfing series and Pilates Personal instruction.  Both practitioners are seeing the same thing, which is a first.  Twisting and rotation, tight sides and weak sides.  I can keep you updated on progress, but I think I found a good combo.
