Moses Chiropractic offers personalized, effective West Palm Beach chiropractic treatment plans to get athletes suffering with back pain to their activities with more knowledge of prevention and rehabilitation tips to avoid future back pain and keep doing what they love to do.

YOUTH ATHLETES, THEIR SPORTS, AND SPONDYLOLYSIS BACK PAIN

Back pain may affect young athletes in a variety 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 was affected by spondylolysis. By sport, males’ top three sports with higher 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 impact the risk of spondylolysis in athletes. (2) This tells Moses Chiropractic that athletes of all ages and all sports deserve attention when suffering with West Palm Beach back pain.

MOTIONS INFLUENCING SPONDYLOLYSIS

West Palm Beach back pain sufferers frequently comment that their back pain came on following a particular seemingly benign move. That’s not uncommon! Past research reports usually pointed to 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 does not demand such motions, and running athletes are diagnosed with spondylolysis prompting researchers to figure out why. They found that the spinopelvic angles of athletes who run are similar to 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 new paper explained 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 signifying improved cartilage metabolism compared to that of non-athletes while type II collagen synthesis was almost equivalent. Glucosamine – a type II collagen – provided a chondroprotective action on osteoarthritis by preventing type II collagen degradation.
