This may be somewhat of a technical question for a chiropractor or acupuncturist familiar with cycling or someone who has gone trhough it about joint injury.
I'm curious if anyone has injured or is familar with anyone who has injured his or her sacral joint (the sacrum is the V-shaped 5-part fused at the end of the spinal column that fits into the two pelvic ileum bones), and if so how long has it prevented you from cycling?
I injured my sacralileac joint on the right side first from weighlifting last winter and then again and worse from jogging (when I was without my bike traveling) on pavement during the summer. It seems I also sprained, according to my chiropractor, my periformis muscle. Both injuries led to lower back stiffness and soreness. I'm getting treatment now and stretching though the stretching is triggering some nerve pain in the leg, so I have to recover gradually.
I hope I'll be able to ride my bikes (upright and recumbent) some time again in spring in a few months. Is anyone familiar with recovery time from this sort of injury (of course, it will vary), but more importantly will it affect cycling?
Thanks for any response!
