Cheers for reminding me! I was meaning to.
It all started around March time when I tweaked my lower back DLing.
Being the twat I am, I didn't think much of it and carried on as normal.
Thinking that it was a trapped nerve, I carried on this way for a while, and then one day when jump squatting I REALLY f*cked it!
I carried on pi$$ing around, trying to train round it, etc. but decided to finally see a physio who told me to stop.
Turns out I had a sacroiliac joint dysfunction (torn ligaments of the sacroiliac joint) and was told to do absolutely nothing, bar a few core strengthening exercises.
I carried on this way for a while, and the pain got worse and worse, until eventually I decided to see a chiropractor.
He then gave me the news that my pelvis was out of line, along with my spine, and spending months of doing nothing (as prescribed by the physio) forced my pelvis to lock out of place in a twisted fashion along with alot of other small bones and joints in that area.
One leg was longer than the other ffs!
Anyway, the chiro re-alligned me, but the area was suffering from great weakness/stiffness, so easily popped back out of place.
For the first few weeks of being back in place, I slipped back out a few times and had to get re-alligned by the chiro, again, and again...until he prescribed me with some stretches to do.
Me being the over enthusiastic twat I am, went head on into the stretches and over stretched on a few occasions, and decided to start leaning over, etc. as a normal person would.
By the time I got round to seeing the chiro again, I was REALLY out of place, and in great pain!
He re-alligned me, and told me to take it easy for a couple of weeks.
From then on, GENTLE stretching was on the agenda, and nothing more than walking really.
I resumed cycling lightly about a week or so ago, but had another scare when trying out a new stretch (cat stretch)...I thought I had put my pelvis out of line one more time, BUT I'd only strained some tissue which shows that the area has finally accepted it's meant to be in the right place, but is still very very weak.
So here I am! Starting back with proper rehab protocol and starting with some very light cycling (dropped the volume down), I should be back into training within a few months (according to the chiro) providing nothing untoward happens!
Hopefully you guys will be with me every step of the way...
