Doubtful!: Bungee jumping isn't what i'd consider a safe sport under any circumstances! Especially if you have any type of hardware in your back (screws, stabilizing rods), those could easily be dislodged or become unstable. I would strongly recommend that you find another activity that does not involve strong gravitational force. Bungee jumping could put excessive pressure on your surgical repair. ...Read more
Bungee jumping: Not a good idea. At the least it can aggravate the pain. At worst it might damage the ligaments and muscles in the back. Usually a compressive injury such as landing on your feet can cause more damage, but as you already have back issues, my advise would be to avoid it. ...Read more

My boyfriend had an ACL reconstruction a few months ago with a hamstring graft. His friends have signed him up for a bungee jump. Is this wise?
I am the wrong person to answer this question, because I am a chicken. There are risks inherent in bungee jumping independent of an ACL reconstruction.
With the ACL construction in mind, what kind of activity is your boyfriend engaged in now? If he is finished with his physical therapy and he has full return of function, the operation may not be a factor anymore.
But why risk it? ...Read more

Can stretching and jumping exercises stimulate growth? I'm a 16 year old male and I'm 5'1". I'm concerned about my height. My brother is 18 and 5'10.
No: Stretching, jumping, exercising, nutritional supplements nor dietary modifications will cause you to grow taller. Your tanner staging (puberty), bone age, general health, hormones, parent height are factors that determine your adult height. See peds endocrine dr for thorough evaluation-asap. You might be a candidate for growth hormone, but at 16, time is of the essence. Good luck. ...Read more
Genetics: Nope. Not in any way.Get a more detailed answer ›
The higher you are the harder you fall.
The jump is practice and strength, the landing is how to save your joints.
You want to spread the dtress of the landing over as many joints as you can. Absorb the shock with hip flex, knee flex, and toes to heel land.
You should have a soft quiet landing. Takes practice. ...Read more
Being a short person, does jumping rope stress my spine to keep it stronger and make it unlikely for me to lose height when older?
Short or tall: Weight bearing exercise: walk, run, jump (rope or sports) help to keep bones in spine and hips strong. Of course need to get enough vitamin d, calcium, etc. Eat right, exercise. Stay active. May need a vitamin d supplement depending on location, sun exposure, and dietary intake. ...Read more
I am 18 year 10 month. My height is 5 feet. But my parents are tall in height. Can hanging or jumping exercise make me tall? Please suggest some way.
When I jump even the smallest height, and I'm about to land, this wave of pain flows from the tips of my toes then throughout my foot. What's wrong?
Possible back/Foot: It's possible that your getting referee pain from a back condition or that you have developed a benign nerve tumor called a morton's neuroma (google back pain and parasthesias and m.Neuroma). Also, assuming you don't have dis eyes or rare taking certain meds, these also might be an unlikely cause. Lastly, certain growth plate conditions can cause these symptoms in your age group. See a neurologist. ...Read more
Sir I'm 20 years indian boy. I'm 5'5'' my father's is 5'7'' and mother is 5'.Sir I want to increase height. I do exercise daily like jumping. No result.
Accept your size: At 20 your growth centers are most likely closed & no further growth is likely. By genetics factors alone you would be predicted to get to 5'6".If your growth centers are open (xray of hand can tell) you might grow more but at 20 this is unlikely. There is no magic exercise or diet to grow taller. Taller kids have taller parents. ...Read more

I was gorge walking Thursday (walking in rivers climbing rocks and jumping from heights) and I hit my knee on a rock and pulled two muscles should I get crutches?
How bad is pain?: Crutches are used when you have an unstable injury (broken bone/ligament injury) and to help pain. Without an exam it's hard to say what you need; but without fracture or internal derangement of knee ligaments I tell patients who use crutches to do "toe touch weight bearing". In other words put as much weight on hurt leg as you comfortably can while walking on crutches to speed healing. ...Read more
Have I got a hairline fracture? I had a friend accidentally jump on my lower leg (75kg) average. Since then I have had pain in the bone and foot?

I'm sorry: I apologize, I don't think too many of us will be able to help you because this isn't enough information to go by to adequately provide you with information that may be helpful. I'm not sure what you mean by "jumping" at all, and would need to know when it occurs, what you're doing when it happens, is it actually painful, are there other symptoms with it? Maybe rephrase it with more information? ...Read more
Jump rope: It depends. If you did it very slowly so that it really didn't raise your heart rate much, no, you really wouldn't lose weight. If you do it briskly enough to get your heart rate up to 80% of your target heart rate (meaning a serious workout), then yes, it would probably help you to lose weight. Personally, I would choose a much lower impact exercise like biking or elliptical machine. ...Read more
