Protection for angle and back..

In 2011 i had a accident at my job and hurted my spine and twisted L5 and have a herni between l4 and l5 and last year on the 24 december i hurted my ligament on ankle and it still hurting me today if i do a fast move like going down the stairs fast.

I was wondering if this ankle protecter is good ??
The FASTER Ankle Brace by BioSkin

And as a back protector,i should look at what kind ??

Sorry for my poor english im french

Not sure I would recommend wearing an ankle brace in a boot. Scott sports makes a lot of back protectors only company I've delt with.

English second language, no need to apologize, eh?

I also have a herniated disc, mine is l3-l4, one up from yours. Steroid injections in my spine and core exercises help. When it hurts beyond that, I take hydrocodone. Sometimes I take two . Sucks, just live with the pain. Not much else you can do.

For your ankle, I've twisted and sprained my ankles many times. No specific diagnosis, but I can tell you that stiff boots help. I just got a pair of k2 thraxis that I'm hoping work out well. I can't imagine an ankle brace inside a boot. Get stiff ass boots and no brace.

K2 thraxis (what I wear, comfy, excellent zone lacing and liner lacing, very very supportive)
Burton driver x
Ride makes some stiff supportive boots, don't know the model

Of course make sure that whichever stiffer boots you choose fit well!

I too have a bad disk L3-L4 area.
It's not the horizontal impacts that cause me pain it is the vertical impacts I need to be very cautious about. Very hard flat landings or even a soft impact can go badly.

As to a protector I can't recommend a specific brand but when I was looking to purchase one this is the style I wanted.

I wear such a Dainese backprotector since 9y. Comfortable and solid. Only drawback is that you sweat more under it, but models with better airflow are available now (if you get one, choose one with wave instead of the cheaper solid plates)

Can you post a pic of the "Wave" I assume it's like overlapping scales of sorts...

Sorry, wrong word. Meant "honeycomb"

Same overlapping plates (not sure, but I assume it's metal instead of plastic), punctuated with thousands of lill holes.
