  1. Sounds like a side spin. I was hit hard and went into a violent spin after thirty years of jumping. I could not get out of it and had to pull my reserve, I described it to my friend Bill Morrisey and he said it was a side spin. On my side, feet going forward. Bill did intentional side spin jumps investigating tandem side spin fatality’s Contact Strong Entprise they will send you a video of Bill Morrisey’s test jumps.
  2. I had a 3-level spinal fusion (C4 to 7). My right arm was paralyzed. Returned to jumping 20 months after surgery and made 8 jumps and started to have pain in my neck again. The problem is the openings. I didn't seem to have much of a problem with mobility in my neck. Also have a friend who had a 3-level fusion who also went back to jumping and is now facing another surgery. You have to weigh the risk versus the reward. Jumping is fun but so is walking and talking.
