I am having trouble finding much info about rotoscolosis... I am an OT and the pain was spiraling me into decreased activity and inc pain... My SI joints swell up x 7 yrs but unrelenting on Lt side x 2yrs now.. disc at L4-L5 likely pinching a nerve but I just had xrays, no MRI yet. I am up to 160lbs at 5'5, I started crossfit to inc core strength and get back in shape... I feel strongly that inc sore strength can manage pain, but I am worried.. if it is already "out of wack" do I risk worsening it?
