I ride with upper body armour all the time incl. a spine protector. I think it would do nearly nothing with regards to the amount you can bend backwards. It will absorb some impact when falling on your back, and for me the main one is it should work really well protecting from quick blunt object hits, running into trees, rocks, etc.
