Sacroiliitis and Exercise

Hi,

I have sacroiliitis...chronic inflammation of the SI joints. I enjoy exercising...especially the elliptical and walking. However, whenever I try any of these, my back is super sore the next day (if I'm lucky) or I'm in complete flare up mode with shooting pain down my leg and I cannot put weight on it or even move it without the pain.

Anyone find a way to add exercise with this condition? My dr keeps saying how important it is to exercise and I would love to, but it seems to do more harm than good.

PS - I hate swimming and it's not practical as I work full time and have kids, so need something in my basement I can use for 30 minutes after the kids go to bed.

  • I have sacroiliitis as part of my Ankylosing Spondylitis. Are you seeing a Rheumotologist, if not you should be. tart out with a very gentle exercise. Many people with AS find that Yoga is very helpful. You don't need any equipment and it's cheap.
    I have Ankolysing Spondylits, Ulcerative Colitis, DDD and a bit of OA to make things fun. Most of my problems are due to inflation of many joints, tendons and ligaments. I see a GP, a Rheumatologest, an orthopedic Dr and a wonderful PM.
