Interesting you say that about bad when you are not lifting. There just wasn't any warning from anyone (there probably was but I took no notice).

I have been back to doctors, and I do run several times a week these days. It's not set wrong or else I couldn't run, and I never got an x-ray.

I went back to trampoline 6 months later and I injured myself trying to do something that I didn't have the muscles for any more. It strikes me as more dangerous than I was willing to admit. It's exercise that really pushes your body and I'm not sure I am comfortable with it compared to things that are more within a body's limit.

For example rock climbing - you are limited by what your body let's you do. Only lift your own weight. And that's a lot closer to the safe limit than trampolines which interact with external contraption and do things like compress your spine and cause unnatural brain shaking.

Weakest link theory was a bit of a joke but I am sure there is some truth to it.

That's great to hear, stay safe.

This sort of data was a contributor to my choice of sport for general well being: https://graphiq-stories.graphiq.com/stories/11438/sports-cause-injuries-high-school#Intro

There is truth to it: https://www.westside-barbell.com/blogs/2003-articles/extra-workouts-2

Really grateful for the info, I never could put my finger on what exactly I was not liking about CM when I wasn't pushing myself, stuff is amazing for preventing exercise soreness though.
