Thread: Back support
01-23-2015, 08:29 PM #1
Probably gotta get surgery on two disks in my back. One buldging and one herniated in two spots. I ride a RXT X. I wanna get a back support for comfort and protect the post op work. Anyone think a MX kidney belt is a good idea? I do but I'm concerned about it fitting well under my vest. I remember the old gold belts from 25 years ago and they were really thin but the support today is so much better. I'm thinking a Fox Turbo will work. Opinions please.

Don't know if it gives enough support or is comfortable and unrestricting but for $30 and made for marine use worth giving a try...

Good luck with your back. Im looking for something to wear as well. I may try the Jettribe belt. I don't have any serious back problems, just some soreness occasionally. Im sure the belt will help when Im out on the big waves getting my ass kicked. I bet that RXPX seat helps some too.

I'm 6'4" and was taxing a beating on my 08 RXPX. I bought an RXTX. That big soft cushy seat and the bigger hull really helped. Finally I feel completely stable on a ski.

J/W what surgery options you're considering? Vertebrae fusion? Artificial discs?
I also have 2 herniated discs (L4-L5 and L5-S1) from a snowboarding accident last NYE, neurosurgeon think's I'm too young (28y/o) for serious surgery if I'm getting by with just PT. At least I've been able to return to skiing and boarding, but I still can't bend over w/o needing to support myself using my arm.

Sounds like a good reason to go with a suspension Ski next time
