    I'm do sorry. Hopefully by now you have found out that playing a wind instrument and jumping at all for sports or otherwise are 2 of the hardest things for your body. People never understand. I would refuse to do anything that could make you worse bc what you do now you may pay for in osteoarthritis later.
