PLAYING 'Barfly' involves wearing a Velcro suit, leaping from a trampoline and attempting to stick oneself to a Velcro wall. Doctors from the John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford, describe in the British Medical Journal the case of a 42-year-old woman who came into hospital four days after becoming 'unstuck' on the wall while upside down. She complained of pain in the lower part of her neck and tingling in her arms. She had sustained a spinal injury as well as joint dislocation, and had to undergo surgery and traction.
