Mini Trampoline Disadvantages
I have bad knees and was wondering if rebounding (exercising on a mini trampoline) is a good or bad exercise for that?
Not proven: Rebounding trampolines have been advocated from making your vision better, glaucoma better, aligning the eyes to reducing migraines by movement of cerebrospinal fluid since wwii. But all are personal and scattered reports. But there is scientific data from nasa that showed it is a much better way of exercising for heart & body than treadmill and jogging. Certainly it won't hurt the eyes. ...Read more

My son fell off a small trampoline and landed knee first he has a bump on his knee an he keeps complaining it hurts. Could it be a bone contusion?
Yes and no.:
In general they are responsible for lots of injuries. Officilly the aap is against them because of thatnhigh injury risk. But if a high quality trampoline with quality sides is used with god supervision and rules then the could be safe. Limit to 1-2 kids at once. Never allow flips. And use a trampoline with quality sides so that kids cannot fall off.
Those rules prevent most injuries. ...Read more

I'm having lower back pains when I move in certain directions I noticed the pain after I went with my friends to a cheer gym and jumped on the trampolines
You are likely dealing with musculoskeletal pain from the physical activity you engaged in. The pain should subside in a week or two. In the meantime take advil (ibuprofen) or Ibuprofen every six to eight hours as needed for pain. Rest as much as possible. You can also try a heating pad to the affected area. If you develop numbness, tingling, or shooting pain see your doctor right away.
Take care. ...Read more

Supervised: Trampolines are a lot of fun. However, many children and adults get hurt on them. Many trampolines have safety nets surrounding them which limit the chance of falling off. Another safety precaution is to only allow one person on the trampoline at a time. Depending on the kids age and safety precautions made, adult supervision should be a given in order to limit chance of injury. ...Read more
Depends.: Like any fall, it depends on how you feel afterwards. If you are unconscious and can't move or breath, then the worst happened and you broke your neck. This is unlikely. If you have no pain, then you are fine. If you have pain, and it is severe, or you are confused or vomiting, of course, don't move and call 911. Otherwise, if you have minor pain, like past wipe-outs, then rest, ice, Tylenol ...Read more

I went jumping at a trampoline park today and did a few flips and jumped in pit now my shoulder hurts on the side about-2-3 inches down?
Nor surprising: I would expect you to be sore after a fall on your shoulder. That is normal. Now, if you have some limitation of movement of your shoulder, or reduced range of motion, you might be smart to be seen and evaluated. Also, if you have shortness of breath you need to be seen, sooner than later. But, you are probably fine. Take Aspirin or ibuprofen, apply some ice. Good luck. ...Read more

If I have a Vp shunt would that be ok to jump on a trampoline im scared of pulling it out or doing something to it?
Never tried it!: I doubt it. Seems like a strange way to try to clear your sinuses, which I believe would be highly unpredictable. Try a simple nasal saline spray from the pharmacy. If you still experience problems, see an ear, nose, and throat specialist to evaluate your sinuses further. ...Read more

What does a Sharp pain when leg is extended mean? Leg was hit with other leg while jumping on trampoline.
More info needed: More information is needed about the location of the leg pain. Your injury appears to be a muscle contusion where it was struck. Another possibility is a leg muscle strain or a sprained ankle or knee. Extending the leg may aggravate all these injuries. Treat with rest, cold applications on and off for two days and then switch to intermittent heat. Advil or Aleve (naproxen) may help. See your MD as needed. ...Read more
I'm only 13 years old and I just got off of my trampoline with a wrenching pain in my chest. I've been drinking water but it still hurts. Help?
Chest pain: The most likely problem is an acute strain of the muscles of the rib cage. This would be associated with increased pain on motions and probably tenderness at the site of the injury. Treatment would be rest, Tylenol but, if you can take them, anti-inflammatory medications like Advil or Aleve should help. See your physician if pain remains severe or if you have shortness of breath. ...Read more

Today was walking through my school, all of a sudden it feels like I'm going to passout, I start shaking it feels like I'm walking on a trampoline!?
Maybe hypoglycemia: The first thing I thought of when I read the question was hypoglycemia, or low blood sugar. Have good meals with the appropriate amount of calories. Keep some m&m's on hand in case this happens again. The chocolate and sugars will get into your blood stream quickly. If they let you carry a water bottle around school, fill it with orange juice instead. If this is not your case, see a doctor. ...Read more
Ice: Use ice initially. If the pain persists, have the knee evaluated. ...Read more

Last week I jumped on a trampoline for 15 min, ever since my thighs hurt badly, and I can barely walk up and down stairs. What could be the cause?
Overuse pain: The use of muscles in your thighs during sustained trampoline use likely caused some microscopic tearing of muscle fibers. This is often not evident at the time, but the bodies response will bring out pain that often peaks around day three and does not completely subside for a week or two. Doing muscle stretches before such an event or building up time of use can decrease this effect in the future. ...Read more
