LOWER BODY INJURYS
PLEASE HELP!! I AM DYING TO START THE SPORT OF SKYDIVING. THE ONLY PROBLEM IS 3 YRS AGO I HAD A CAR ACCIDENT LEAVING 1 OF MY ANKLES WITH LITTLE MOVEMENT. I HAVE ALSO HAD TO GROW 9CM OF NEW BONE USING A FRAME. MY LEG IS FINE NOW ITS JUST MY ANKLE. THE ONLE THING IM WORRIED ABOUT IS HOW HARD YOU LAND?? DO YOU COME IN VERY FAST? I CAN JOG FOR LITTLE PERIODS, DO YOU THINK I WILL BE ABLE TO DO SKYDIVING?? I CAN TAKE A LOT OF IMPACT THROUGH THE ANKLE ( I HAVE BEEN PRACTICING JUMPING OFF STAIRS) I HAVE HEARD THAT THERE ARE LOTS OF PEOPLE WITH INJURYS DO SKYDIVING?

hey if they srteched your bone a touch, and you can jog a bit and can land on it, with out it going "crack" Give it a go. discuss it with your DZO and instructor and I am sure they will get you on the ground safetly Lifes full of choices, the dull ones and the fun ones.
