YOUTH ATHLETES, THEIR SPORTS, AND SPONDYLOLYSIS BACK PAIN

Back pain may grip young athletes in a range of sports. Researchers suggest that the young person or adolescent with low back pain and back muscle spasm needs to be followed carefully for heightened risk of pars interarticularis fracture related to spondylolisthesis and spondylolysis. (1) In a new study of 1025 adolescent athletes with low back pain, 30% of them had spondylolysis. By sport, males’ top 3 sports with increased risk were baseball (54%), soccer (48%), and hockey (44%). Females’ top three sports were gymnastics (34%), marching band (31%), and softball (30%). Geography and level of athletic prowess may significantly influence the risk of spondylolysis in athletes. (2) This just goes to show Minster Chiropractic Center that athletes of all ages and all sports deserve attention when experiencing Minster back pain.

MOTIONS INFLUENCING SPONDYLOLYSIS

Minster back pain sufferers often comment that their back pain came on following a particular really benign move. That’s not uncommon! Past research reports often indicated that repetitive motion of the lumbar spine into extension, rotation or a combination of these to be key risk factors for spondylolysis. Such motions were noted in baseball batting or pitching practice, soccer shooting practice, and volleyball spiking practice. Running track and field doesn’t require such motions, and running athletes are seen with spondylolysis prompting researchers to figure out why. They found that the spinopelvic angles in athletes who run are like those of the above sports’ athletes, putting them at risk of mechanical stress on the pars interarticularis, too, leading to spondylolysis.

GLUCOSAMINE SUPPLEMENTATION BENEFITS FOR ALL

A current paper explained that endurance athletes has intense joint-loading preceding cartilage metabolism and type II collagen degradation. The type II collagen degradation in soccer and rugby players was increased signifying enhanced cartilage metabolism compared to that of non-athletes while type II collagen synthesis was almost equivalent. Glucosamine – a type II collagen – delivered a chondroprotective action on osteoarthritis by preventing type II collagen degradation.
