High School Gymnastics- FKKKs the spine- then taught for 3 years- kids got fatter each year

Best Answer

I was gymnastics that did it to me...besides messing with my spine from too many unnatural back bends, in PE in the late 1970's they had set up the high beam with the spring board to jump up onto it, which was never my thing. I didn't really want to do it but it was expected. Got one foot up then fell back, and landed with my tailbone right on the corner of the spring board where the metal ***** was. OW. Hurt for 15 years and couldn't sit in a soft chair without my tailbone aching. And I still have problems with muscles in that area
