YOUTH ATHLETES, THEIR SPORTS, AND SPONDYLOLYSIS BACK PAIN

Back pain may affect 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 closely for heightened risk of pars interarticularis fracture associated with 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 ability may significantly impact the risk of spondylolysis in athletes. (2) This just goes to show Back And Neck Care Center that athletes of all ages and all sports deserve attention when suffering with Severna Park back pain.

MOTIONS INFLUENCING SPONDYLOLYSIS

Severna Park back pain sufferers frequently comment that their back pain came on after a particular really non-hurtful move. That’s not uncommon! Past research studies usually 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 seen in baseball batting or pitching practice, soccer shooting practice, and volleyball spiking practice. Running track and field doesn’t demand such motions, yet running athletes are seen with spondylolysis pushing researchers to figure out why. They discovered that the spinopelvic angles in athletes who run are like those of the above sports’ athletes, putting them in danger of mechanical stress on the pars interarticularis, too, leading to spondylolysis.

GLUCOSAMINE SUPPLEMENTATION BENEFITS FOR ALL

A current paper noted that endurance athletes has intense joint-loading leading to cartilage metabolism and type II collagen degradation. In soccer and rugby players, the type II collagen degradation was elevated suggesting improved cartilage metabolism compared to that of non-athletes while type II collagen synthesis was almost the same. Glucosamine – a type II collagen – provided a chondroprotective action on osteoarthritis by preventing type II collagen degradation.
