High back band for better lower back support?
A quick backround- recently, I had a herniated disk in one of my lower vertabrae which, through X-ray, also confirmed severe arthritis in my lower 4 vertabrae, I've read that a sciatica can develop from this condition as well; I'm only 34 and I want to keep ww kayaking, but I need better back support promoting better boat-posture. Any good products you've come across that could help? I've come across some touring boat seats with high back pads I could butcher and make work I guess.(surftosummit.com has a "GTS sport" might work)
A little more info, I'm one of those people with short legs, long torso(6'1" w/32" inseam) so good back support has always been an issue. I've decided to stay off the hard-core stuff, like IV-'s and up, which I haven't had much time on anyways, so it's not that big a deal for me to stick to the more low-stress runs.
