|Isheal Bursitis||the Phantom|

|A very dear friend has been diagnosed with a painful irritation of the Isheal bursta. There seems to be a relation to very active cycling and spinning. She meets the following bio: Very tall and thin, exceptionally fit, all legs, a '10' indead. She is an avid spinning trainer who teaches five or more times per week year round. She is beginning the cycling season somewhat late due to the horrid New England winter. She is presently training with her eyes on the Mt. Washington Hillclimb and a cycle tour week in Colorado. Additionally, several centuries later in the summer. (She is Super Woman in in all respects). Unfortunatly, the continued pain from the tail bone area is causing her to rethink of the coming cycling season for the hard core level she thrives in. The condition has presisted for several months. She has had many sessions of physical therapy, electrical stimulation, pain relief shots in the direction of a cure.
Questions: Is the injury a repetitive strain and over use type injury? Seems that toning down the frequency and intensity of saddle time might be the best start. Are there any web sites or contacts to recommend? Any women specific saddles or positioning for a quick fix?

Could be adhesions within the piriformis causing nerve impingement. Could also be a misalignment of the coccyx. Check with a good chiropractor and/or ART practitioner.
