Took a good spill yesterday when equine teleported left (nice duck and spin) while walking on the buckle while talking to my trainer and I did not stick. Landed on my lower back according to the sand scrapes although it happened so fast I can’t really remember. Wasn’t really his fault - some horses next to the paddock came running out of the dark at him.
Went to the ER, nothing is broken, thankfully, but they diagnosed a Sacroiliac Ligament Sprain. This, after just getting back in the tack after two labral tear repairs and osteoplasty.
So she referred me to a neurosurgeon (which was surprising) but apparently he focuses on the spine. Seems like a good fit I guess? Good meds, lots of steroids, and I’m walking better but still painful to sit.
Anyone have advice on healing or getting back in the tack? I’m so bummed that I hurt something (again) and don’t want to damage anything prematurely, but I know for my head I need to be in the saddle again soon. I got over complex PTSD related to falls 10 years ago FINALLY and I don’t want to lose that.
