I have to take a break from sports

November 11, 2015 Leave a comment

In the end of May I started training for my first half marathon which was supposed to be on October 4th. Unfortunately I could not start due to having problems with my lower back.

I had an appointment with an orthopaedist yesterday. My spine was X-rayed to find out what’s wrong with my back. The doc said my spine just looks fine, but what causes the problem is the sacroiliac joint.

Overuse of the sacroiliac joint – that’s my diagnosis.

And the treatment? I am not allowed to do any sports for the next 6-8 weeks. BAM! I could not believe what I had heard. I’ve been doing strength and TRX training 3-4 times a week and now I have to take a break. Additionally I have to take ibuprofen 400mg 3 times a day for the next 12 days. And I got a prescription for insoles for my shoes.

How am I supposed to not do any sports for such a long time?

I just want to run and workout..
