YOUTH ATHLETES, THEIR SPORTS, AND SPONDYLOLYSIS BACK PAIN

Back pain may affect young athletes in a range of sports. Researchers propose that the young person or adolescent with low back pain and back muscle spasm needs to be followed carefully for increased 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 3 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 Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation that athletes of all ages and all sports deserve attention when suffering with Baton Rouge back pain.

MOTIONS INFLUENCING SPONDYLOLYSIS

Baton Rouge back pain sufferers frequently comment that their back pain came on after a certain really non-hurtful 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 as key risk factors for spondylolysis. Such motions were noted in practicing baseball batting/pitching, soccer shooting, and volleyball spiking. Running track and field doesn’t demand such motions, and running athletes are diagnosed with spondylolysis pushing researchers to determine why. They discovered that the spinopelvic angles of running athletes are like those of the above sports’ athletes, making them vulnerable to mechanical stress on the pars interarticularis, too, leading to spondylolysis.

GLUCOSAMINE SUPPLEMENTATION BENEFITS FOR ALL

A new article noted that endurance athletes has intense joint-loading preceding cartilage metabolism and type II collagen degradation. In soccer and rugby players, the type II collagen degradation was increased indicating improved cartilage metabolism compared to that of non-athletes while type II collagen synthesis was nearly equivalent. Glucosamine – a type II collagen – provided a chondroprotective action on osteoarthritis by blocking type II collagen degradation.
