So a month ago i was flipping on my snowboard (nothing really big), i was about 8 feet up and i had that 1 in a million were the rotation wouldnt happen and i landed on my shoulders.but not arched backwards, more in the tucked position. 3 days after or so my middle back on my spine started hurting me. its only when i bend backwards and its in the same place. It doesnt hurt when i bend forward orwalk around for that matter. Now its not the kind of a pain were you break something... Any ideas?? Im just concerned because wakeboard season is coming and i am just a big fan of flips.

See a doctor! There could be all sorts of things wrong with you from a pulled muscle all the way up to a crack vertebrae. Don't be stupid.

What kind of pain is it? Is it a sharp pain that radiates down one of your legs? If so you may have a slipped disc.

I slipped one disc and tore a second in a motocross injury over a year ago. Had the max of 3 spine injections, and now my life has been hell ever since.

Ouch. If it's on the spine you have probably slipped or herniated a disc. Some people have disc problems for life once one gets messed up, and some people will be lucky enough to get over it. I still have a crushed vertebrae in my neck. Luckily, it doesn't mess with me very often.

But I would see a doctor. You need xrays to determine the extent of the problem.

I got a injury last spring and my back has never been the same. Last week bought a back2life and I feel a ton better. Not saying that will fix it, but it is greatly helping me.

Start by Rest & ice 2-3 times per day. Add stretching every day., than SEE A DOCTOR.

The pain does not shoot down my legs or feel as ifi broke anything, its an odd pain, its getting better, slowly. It has the sensation like its brused. But is this possible on your spine and for this long of a period?

its weird because im not in pain at all during the day, only if i were to do a backflip would i get some slight pain.

You should probably postpone any back flipping until you get an xray. :-)

Like I said, I broke my neck and didn't even know it for weeks. You should have it looked at.

michael, not to be a dick, but it's ridiculous for you to get the right answer for your problem on a message board, as proper diagnosing is impossible over a forum. it doesn't matter if someone experiences the same symptoms. please do yourself a favor; go see a doctor (an m.d.).

Michael, you've gotten some good advice and all say the same thing: Go to a physician. Don't mess with a general prac either. Save time and possibly more injury and prolonged agony and go straight to a orthopedic. If you have to get a referral so be it. Back injuries can take weeks to heal - with proper care.

Good luck Buddy, keep us posted

Back injures suck as mentioned from all of the above. Ive noticed a big difference now with dailly stretching after workouts. As long as Im doing my workouts I feel good, but after a couple weeks....its hit and miss.

I did almost exact same thing hung up in between couldnt get board under me or over shoulders.
only had pain when I was hitting fly balls to my son
Could ride , not pain free But was able to ride
Trip to dr. X-rays cracked T-7 T-8 ( compression fracture) herniated disc
MRI two days later
10 days after that was having surgery
Procedure was called Kyphoplasty(sp)
was relesed to full activity in 24 hrs
Surgery was at 8:00 am and I was at sons bball practice same night
at 6:00pm
Dr told me if I let it heal without surgery I would shrink and not to be able to stand up straight

Still have herniated disc , small pain here and there but much better than it was

Let me know if you have any questions about procedure
Takes them like 20 mins start to finish
I was lucky any they read MRI wrong and had extra holes punched
In back and extra time on Table

Just seen you posted results Michael good to hear you will be fine
Plenty of time to heal before summer

Ouch Ben. I ride, but not like that! I hope your pain is manageable.

I have had my share of back injuries, but never permanent. Until you have it, you can never understand how it effects everything you do or while doing nothing. My co-worker has to continuously change his meds and wears a pain blocker shock thingy about 50% of the time.

I think this is the slowest healing injury ever.

Yhea it sucks. Mine was great since I got that machine. Than last night played Volleyball and could barely get out of the gym on my own two feet. Warmed up, stretched and wore warm clothes until the 3rd game. Stretched between games, stayed warm and felt great till the end. This sucks! Spent 2 cycles on the machines last night and once this morning so much better, but still pretty tight and sore.
