Jeezus christ man. Good to hear there won't be any permanent/lasting damage. Like already mentioned though, rehab, rehab, rehab. Sending +vibes your way!

Thanks for the vibes guys. Everything is going good so far and starting tomorrow I can begin light exercising so I'm stoked to get that going.

I don't know if I'd say tough, more like stupid. A stupid ox that doesn't know enough to stay still after being injured.

Damn how'd I miss this? Hope you get better fast! How's the recovery coming?

This just reinforces a debate in another thread about doing straight airs of a jump... always always leave off a flat base.

Take it easy bro!

Well, my goal was to leave off a flat base

I'm doing good bro, I'm doing light workouts now, been banging the wife like a drum for the past 4 weeks, life is good. haha

I should be back to normal by this summer.

nah, just be smart and don't do stupid shit. I should have been fine but I had a momentary lack of judgement and got wrecked. If I didn't promise my wife and kid that I wouldn't hit jumps anymore, I'd be hitting the first kicker I see next year.

But I promised, so I gotta get my air time off hips and rollers now and really that will be enough...until I see Leo and Dave hitting jumps.

Wow...not a huge one either. Scary to think a "small" jump can go so big wrong.

Tell you what though, there are comments in the thread about "only" a herniated disc. From experience, I would rather have a fractured vertebrae than a herniated disc. I have a herniated L4-L5. No cure, doesn't ever get better. My back hurts every day. Dawn to dawn, including when I sleep. Advil helps, lortab is better, don't let it limit me other than being scared to jump much more than a little.

Friend of mine broke his back, X-ray looks a LOT like yours. He was in a clamshell for 4 months, rehab a couple months after that, and he's all better. 100%.

This may sound odd, but be happy it's a broken bone! The only hard part will be getting strength back in time for next season.

Get well soon!
