Although Spider-man is stronger than a normal man, his muscles and ligaments would not survive a sudden catch when falling unless the web is slightly elastic....
Mass x Velocity = Force x Time.
When any object is moving it has momentum,
the faster it goes and the bigger it is the more momentum it has. To stop an
object it takes a force acting over a period of time. The longer the time you
have to stop an object the less force you need.
If Spider-man’s web is not elastic it will be a very abrupt stop (short time), which means a massive force acting on him to stop his fall
