  Doug, if you have a back problem, a tandem jump is definitely in your best
interest.  Prior to landing, you lift your feet up and let the instructor
and parachute take the contact.  Note that I did not say impact.  The
large surface area ram air canopy and an experienced instructor will make
a tip toe landing.  Regards, Eric.
