I was thinking about buying a HIGH end pair of pants with great tail bone / butt padding and a back brace. Or the combination of a girdle, brace and good pants. Any comments, thoughts or divine revelations?
As long as the area that was injured is well protected, you should be alright. Give it a try and see how it goes. If it doesn't feel right then you probably shouldn't play, however, I've known people with some bad back injuries that came back and played after it was fixed. Just don't play full contact.
