Spondylolisthesis L5/S1 and Roller coasters?
It's a relatively trivial matter I know compared to some of the nightmares folks go through with their back conditions. Anyway, I have spondy grade 2 from congenital defect as opposed to accident. My neuro-spine surgeon erred against going on rollercoasters (Busch Garden VA intended in a few weeks) but does anyone else with similar condition have experience of doing so? My thought is that, even if not immediately able, if I do enough core strengthening over say a 6 month period and border on 6-pack abs etc, would it not be possible to ride the smoother steel coasters (would love to do it with my 11 year old son) if also wearing a back brace wrap? I had a 2-3 month bout of sciatica but that has subsided and I'm increasing walking again and do a considerable stretching routine once or twice a day with plenty of core work.
