I’ll never forget the first time I REALLY felt it in my lower back doing slalom in a big chop.
These days I maintain a lower back regimen with an abdominal crunch roller bar to keep myself from becoming debilitated. So far so good!
I can relate...the last few weeks I've been reminiscing the first time I saw stars thanks to a little pain in my upper/mid back. I hit the water backward off a ~130' jump and my back slammed hard...my whole body was tingling and I saw little twinkly lights all around! I always though that was cartoon stuff until then.
