But yeah, if you say that most of your back woes are caused by falling...maybe goalie is right up your alley. You're doing more "controlled falling"
I'm about 6' 1", so I don't know if that is considered tall for a goalie.
My back problems were herniated discs, I'm afraid that a fall into the boards might do it again, but if I stay safe and try and build my core muscles that might help.
