[RC] Bruised tail bone... Concussion, compaction - Randy or Cheryl Winter

When I was pre or early teen, my cousins and I were playing like we were
long jumpers on a lawn.  When I landed, my feet slipped forward on the green
grass and I landed VERY hard on my tail bone.  Never had it x rayed, but it
hurt for weeks, as did my whole lower back.  Now fast forward Many years,
and I no longer have a disc left between L4-5, bone on bone.  I have managed
it well, but still gets very sore a times especially after sitting a long
time.  Anyway, I have often wondered if that particular injury was the set
up for damage to that disc very early on.... Landing with that much jolt up
the spine could not have been good for it.  Take good care of it now to
minimize the damage.

You can jump in ( no pun intended) on this any time Bruce :>)
