Herniated Disk L4/L5 - Getting Back on the Slopes

Postby robdipp » Sat Sep 13, 2014 2:08 pm

Hi, I am new here so I am not sure if this is the right place for this but I herniated a disk in my lower back about 8 months ago. I can now walk normally now and get a dull pain if I sit for long periods of time. My doctor said I could re-aggravate the injury if I have a severe enough fall on my back.

I was just wondering if there is anyone who knows someone with a herniated disk who was able to continue snowboarding? If so what protective gear did they use? What was the severity of the disk herniation?

Cheers!
