Feb.13,2013: Well today’s topic is easy. The ole S I Joint has rotated again. How many of you have back problems?
The S I joint moves everytime you move. When it rotates out of place…PAINFUL! The back and quad muscles seize up, and your waist and pelvis just lock up. I did make an emergency visit to the chiropractor yesterday. He got a little movement…I got a little relief. Will go back this morning for adjustment then again after work. Should be pretty good to go after that.
There is nothing more dibilitating than back pain. I’ve been fortunate throughout my athletic career to never break a bone or really get hurt. I have always had back problems…as far back as high school. Of course, back then you didn’t run to a Dr for every little thing like people do now. I just thought I had the back ache from always playing to much. I was a big tennis/ volleyball player then…. runner/ beach volleyball until 40… now a golfer. Not the easiest sports on the back.
Chiropractic care has worked the best for me. I don’t take meds and definitly won’t stop my active lifestyle… plus I’m a trainer. I’ve been seeing the chiropractor 10 years now…most days I’m just fine and lead my life. There are always going to be times where that pelvis and S I joint rotate and get stuck….but I know what to do and how to manage it w/ monthly maintenance visits. The goal, stay active…motion is lotion!
