I am in severe pain lately due to a bad riding incident in 2008... I have gone to the hospital here a few times, all they do is "heres some pain meds, go away" kind of thing... Chiropractors helps a bit but I can't exactly afford to go there 2-3 times a week like I used to when I was covered under my parents, benefits.
Heres what happened....
In 2008, my horse, Turly, and I were at a Pony Club Camp. Really fun camp, we had Dressage, Jumpers, and Cross-Country... Well, this was mine and Turly's first time on the X-Country course ever. He has had history there with the pond, being scared of it. The first few days he was terrified of the pond, so every evening I would take him out there and lunge him in it, he seemed to have gotten over it, and the next few days we were jumping in and out of the pond like pro's!
Well... the last day of the camp, we jumped into the pond, Turly slipped. I fell off, Turly had fallen onto me and rolled on the bottom half of me.
He had cuts all over his stomach from the studs in his shoes, but other then that he was sound. I could hardly move, I came up to the surface (noticed there were dead frogs EVERYWHERE, yuck lol), my hips were in terrible pain. I refused going to the hospital, so my coach (whom studied in pyshio therapy) fixed my hips for the interm.
Now I am noticing when I go riding here with the cold, it's extrusiating pain. I take Naproxen every night to help me sleep, and it takes a bad toll on my stomach though. I can literally lay on my stomach and crack my hips, I am only 20 years old, some cold days I can hardly sit down and get back up.
My question is, are there any kinds of exercises that I can do to help this? Or would physio therapy help? Any natural remedies that could help pain? Any stories you would like to share as welll?
