This is a long shot, but thought I’d ask anyway. Is there anyone on this forum who also suffers this condition? I can move this thread to personal messaging if preferred. I’m not looking for medical information, just a support group. Thank you for any replies.

Not that kind of osteoarthritis no, and bad luck for having developed it. 🤒

Hi Jill yes I was diagnosed with this condition but I am using exercise to ease the pain. Won’t stop me doing another Camino probably Sept 2021

Thanks for replying. What exercises do you do?

I told the specialist I’m a camino addict (I had to explain this), and that I like to go to Spain every year, just me and my pack, and walk a thousand kilometres, from village to village. This was to his question of how often do I get the pain in my lower back. I told him I am mostly fine on the camino, and he said Good! Don’t Give It Up! He thinks my pack is probably keeping my back straight, and giving support to the lumbar region. Exercise is good. Just thought I’d mention this in case anybody else stumbles across this thread when googling Can I Still Walk With Facet Joint Osteoarthritis. I’ve done a lot of googling . . .

Jill, it's nice to hear your arthritic condition will not keep you from doing what you love, and there is nothing better than getting a stamp(sello🙂) of approval from your doctor.
