    When I was 21 I wrecked on my mountain bike pretty bad. tweaked my back and compressed the disk. back pain is THE WORST! I ended up doing physical therapy twice a week for 3 months. The best thing I did (and still do occasionally) is ice and stimulation. I LOVED it when they hooked up the electrodes to my back and laid the ice packs on there. Unfortunately... that injured, even though I have healed from it for the most part, cost me my job in the firefighting field (with the help of a bad economy of course).

    Best I can tell you is do some back strengthening exercises and dont do anything crazy on it for a while. I am also about to get an inversion table to help on my bad days.

    I effed up last year early and went over the bars slamming down on my back. Mis-read the downhill turn and after that I've been hesitant to do much single track. Scary shit

    Yeah I haven't gotten back on the bike after that. Ive tried, but it is just too brutal on my body anymore. I had been riding since 2000 up until that accident with many accidents in between. I was in single track as well and came around a turn way too fast on some slick leaves and slammed my whole torso into a tree at about 15 or so mph (coming down off part of a hill).

    My first real crash on street bike was about 70mph into a cadillac :D
    The guy did a left turn right infront of me. I was on a 96 ZX7R. wrists are messed up too. Broke off both clips ons, and the gas tank came off with me.
    probably the one that did all the damage, but I'm sure the following crashes did not help. Another one was bad lowside. Was going way too fast on a long freeway on ramp with cold tires. Seemed like I was gonna tumble forever. The hardest thing is getting back on and learning to trust your tires again. I've had to have atleast 10 significant crashes, but only 3 bad wrecks. And thats more than enough.
    Dont let your kids ride a motorcycle ;)

    I've heard the full sus bikes are a lot easier on your back over hard tail. I'd consider this if I went off pavement anymore.

    Geez, you know the super slow careful guy that's typically riding a Touring/adventure bike of some sort? I'm that slow guy only on a zx6. I am far from using the full potential of that bike. Except the occasional night at the drag strip.

    it is great thing to do together. being a yoga teacher i have helped a lot of bad backs with yoga,but you have to make it a long term thing if you want to stay healthy.
