However I used to be in a rush so simply lifted the entrance of the bike off the bottom and held it whereas I launched the short launch and let the wheel drop out. Whereas doing that I felt an enormous twinge within the SI joint and it was in regular ache after, making sleep difficult final evening. By at present it’s nonetheless fairly sore however somewhat higher than yesterday. I’m hoping I simply strained the joint itself or a ligament or muscle (just like the piriformis) close to it. I’ll take a couple of days off from exercising and hope it heals again up. I’m additionally sporting a particular SI joint belt just like the one I described right here, which helps the joint. I can afford the enforced relaxation since I’ve been figuring out quite a bit recently.

On reflection what I did was equal to sitting in a chair, holding my arm out regular whereas holding a 15 pound dumbbell, and leaning ahead. Just about assured to place pressure on the again space together with the SI joint. Now it’s me that appears like a dumbbell. You actually need to watch out to keep away from sure actions and positions whereas rehabbing an damage.
