In brief: Yes- but w/ and w/o

You can sustain a significant back injury that may be sports related with and without a back support device.
Proper technique (if lifting weights as an example) and proper positioning (if colliding with another player in a sporting event) will be likely more beneficial in reducing risk of sports related back injury.
