Any recommendation for athletic supporter?

Recommended Posts

I got back ingury in October ( Damn, Hard and icy indoor slope with many people!!)

 

Finally Doctor said "OK" for exercising and snowboarding, but he also said I should wear "athletic supporter" for my back....

 

BUT I have no idea where I can get it and how much does it cost... any ideas or recomendation?

hey nat...

 

i broke my back skiing once...it sucks...

doctor said i shouldn't use a back supporter...

you don't want your body to become dependant

on it...next thing you know you are going to

need a cane....

 

do lots of sit-ups...and other exercises that

can build up the area...

 

good luck...

hey nat...

 

you know, you don't need a gym...

you can do some kick-ass ski-specific

exercises/strenghening drills in your

own room/neighborhood...cheaper and raw!

Yeah Nat, get on down in your own room. Just get some exercise vids out, select appropriate course and do it!! No need for any fancy stuff. Seriously, I agree with Danz, you don't want to get too dependant on something like that - no good in the long term.

My hips go spastic when the seasons change and walking gets really painful (too much stupid judo stretching when I was a kid). I used to just lie around groaning whenever it happened, but now I exercise when it starts hurting and the pain never gets worse than mildly annoying.

 

Work it on out.

 

Hey danz, your signature makes me more laugh more the more I see it. I'm praying man, I'm PRAYING!

Thanks for many suggestion...

 

...I don't mind to exercise at home, but I am a bit scared to re-mess my back because I couldn't do proper exercise myself...

 

Well I gonna go try to go the gym and to exercise in my room.
