Possibly.: Roller coasters by their very nature are fast, and move violently placing high levels of stress on the muscles and joints of the body. If you have significant degenerative disease riding a roller coaster could cause damage and lead to sore, painful back. Recommend that you speak with your physician and if needed seek out a evaluation from an orthopedic surgeon to see what their opinion is.
