If I have medical issues, should I consult my doctor?

Yes. If you have any specific medical concerns, always consult your doctor before beginning any new exercise routine, including bouncing on the bellicon. If you have back pain or a bad disk, we recommend using the bungees that correspond to your weight class to give you the softest, most gentle bounce. Also, if you have bad knees or bad joints the softer bounce will feel better on your body. If you suffer from osteoporosis then a firmer bounce is better. Using the bellicon can help to increase bone density and reverse osteopenia. A firmer bounce is also better if you have a problem with over-pronation of your ankles. For a firmer bounce you should use bungees that are at least one weight class above your own.
