Justice had an appointment at Ruby Memorial Hospital Monday afternoon to see about discomfort in the SI joint in his back.

“Under the care of the medical professionals at WVU Medicine, a routine injection was administered to alleviate the joint pain. The doctors then advised me not to drive for 24 hours,” Justice said in a Monday night statement. “So because of this, I have decided to postpone my planned events in Huntington and Point Pleasant that were initially set for tomorrow. Instead, I will be rescheduling these events.”

SI joints link the pelvis and lower spine.

Justice said his back had been bothering him for a few weeks.

He said he still plans to speak at the Gas and Oil Association meeting at the Greenbrier Tuesday morning. Justice is also scheduled to have a media briefing Wednesday.

“I would like to extend my heartfelt appreciation to the entire team at WVU Medicine for their professional and dedicated care,” Justice said. “As a state, we are truly fortunate to have such an incredible healthcare resource available to us.”
