    wanting to know the thoughts of anyone whose had a slipped disc and rides - im only 23 and recovering well

    Had a minor prolapse a few years back. It does give me the shits after long stints in the sadle, thus I can often be seen standing on the pegs twisting my arse from side to side. Doesnt give me much greif aside from that.
    In complete darkness we are all the same. It is only our knowledge and wisdom that seperate us. Dont let your eyes deceive you.
    Its the little things that make the difference

      Is that why?
      And for a while I began to believe the gay rumours! Go figure!

      All depends on the style of bike V....sports orientated riding positions will give you more trouble(if you have back, wrist, shoulder issues) when compared to the more upright sitting position (commonly known as the "sit up and beg") that you might see on the Sport/Tourer and Cruiser styles.

            Slipped, pro-lapsed and shattered here. When it first happened I could only ride cruisers (and anything where you sit straight, though that could be more to do with the brace I had to wear), now (about 18 months after it all happened) I can ride pretty much any, but I start to get real uncomfortable on rides any longer then about 2 hours. About 6 months after it happened I had a ride of a friends sports, and after about 5 minutes I was in agony for about 3 days.

            If you plan to do a long ride, see if you can get a massage before you head off, I find I can ride for about twice as long if I do this. A tight kidney belt also helps.

                  Rest it and it will be allright although you don't say where it is i.e. upper or lower back. If its the lower back it could be a problem. Swimming is really good for your back plus it soothes the optic nerve. Have fun. P.S. Flexibility is very important also.

                      Have a bulged disc in lower back L4- L5 which pushes on the sciatic nerve.
                      It causes great pain in my lower back, down my right leg and foot.
                      I also get numbness, tingling, burning or prickling sensations.
                      None of this stops me riding my sports bike though, as I just put up with the pain.

                        I had a micro disectomy about 3 months ago and still aren't able to ride. But it is good to hear Havago that you are riding a sports bike. Maybe there is hope yet for me. Arwon has volunteered to look after my bike so I can't sneak a ride in.

                          yeah lower back - L/45-S1

                          im such a poor swimmer but bought googles and cap the other day to get started on it... i like land sports but i just seem to die in the water

                          seems like everyones problem is different. sitting normally for about 2 hours at home is painful so guess im gonna just have to give it try and see how it goes...

                          usually when the endorphins kick in during sport i dont really feel a thing, so i may just have to make sure my ridin does the same thing

                            Okay (V) I crushed a vertibrae and ruptered the Disc at L5/S1, Partial paralysis due to damage to Sciatic nerve for my right leg, surgery was a partial discectomy, spent 3 months in hospital on my back, and then 6 months on sick leave learning to move again etc.

                            Now 10 yrs later only a minor limp (hardly perceptible) no sensation in my small toes on my right foot, some loss of sensation for my right leg.

                            I ride a sports bike and love it. Yes you can get tired from holding yourself properly, but on longer country runs I use a back support\protector to help relive the pressure.

                            Other than that I have no problems with in, I ride every day to and from work.

                            If you ride and find it unbearable then look to change styles but until then just keep on enjoying it.

                              Ruptured disc L5 S1 paralysed my left leg lost the use of my bladder. Had a partial discectomy and lamenectomy emergeny surgery in 97 had it again in 98 its been good ever since. I have raced M/X enduros since with some discomfort but only if I stop my core muscle exercises.Sport bikes don't bother much just make sure you do HEAPS of core muscle work. I found Kayak paddling to help heaps if you use correct technique.
