Can you rupture an appendix from pressing on it or jumping pulling your leg up to your stomach etc?

In brief: Very unlikely

The appendix is fairly deep in your abdomen protected by layers.
If you have pain from jumping/pulling it is likely a muscle strain or depending on location, a hernia. Hope that helps.
