I'm looking for runners with spinal osteoarthritis.
There's some great information and relevant posts on this site about running and lower back issues, but I'm still utterly lost.
Obviously, common sense would tell you that any form of high impact exercise would not be a good idea. I've read about trying something else, but I'm not a fan of the stationery bike, or elliptical machines.
I should say that my doctor said I could run (lightly) which did surprise me. When I do run - I feel better, my back does feel uncomfortable initially, but passes.
My worry is what will happen if I keep running? Does anybody have an experience of this. Perhaps they've been running with a similar problem for much longer than me.
Thanks in advance...
