Why does my back hurt when I jump?

In response

When one jumps, the disc of the spinal cord undergoes compression upon impact, i.e., when the feet lands. This compression is the source of the back pain.

In general, the discs do not compress against each other when one is in the air or when one stretches one’s back.
