Sacroiliac Joint Woes

Yup, the sacroiliac (SI) joint in my right hip has flared up again.  Time to stretch and for prednisone for the inflammation, both of which I’m doing and have, courtesy of my doctor.  Yesterday was really bad. Today, actually, is better.

From what I have learned in the past, SI joint pain is most common in women because the joint is generally looser in our bodies.  Also, most women have it on their right side, as I do.

Believe it or not, I can still hoop during my recovery.  I just have to be careful how I stretch, and where I hoop.  Hip hooping is basically out for about a week or so, and like hip hooping.   Boo!  Also, since I am a left rotation dominant hooper, hooping to the right is my non-dominant current.  I’ll have to be careful doing that, too.

Class is tonight at the Ephrata Rec Center.  (Hey, you can still sign up!).  I’ll just have to take it easy, even though prednisone makes me feel like I can not only eat everything in sight, but also gives me a bit of an energy boost.

So, that’s where I’m at with my hooping and my latest health woes.
