I can't not ride..
So last wednesday I was thrown off pretty good twice in one ride, landed on my lower back/tailbone both times. I even started crying from extreme frustration and the horrible pain, but kept riding. I'm still very sore over a week later, but I can't convince myself to take a break from riding.. I've gone to the chiropractor twice now, loosened me up last Thursday but today I was kind of "stuck" being so stiff.
My work (trail riding) is picking up again, and I need the hours badly. So I can't completely not ride.. I have been the back guide when I've worked the last week instead of lead so I don't have to turn around as much and strain my back any more than needed..
What are some exercises to do to stretch out my back, good pain meds I could take, or things I could do while riding to take the stress off my lower back? I've been icing my back between classes, while resting, etc, and I'm still in pain :(
