YOUTH ATHLETES, THEIR SPORTS, AND SPONDYLOLYSIS BACK PAIN

Back pain may affect young athletes in a variety of sports. Researchers propose that the young person or adolescent with low back pain and back muscle spasm should 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 three sports with higher 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 tells Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center that athletes of all ages and all sports deserve attention when experiencing Paramus back pain.

MOTIONS INFLUENCING SPONDYLOLYSIS

Paramus back pain sufferers often comment that their back pain came on following a particular really 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 as important risk factors for spondylolysis. Such motions were noted in practicing baseball batting/pitching, soccer shooting, and volleyball spiking. Running track and field does not require such motions, yet running athletes are diagnosed with spondylolysis prompting researchers to figure out why. They discovered that the spinopelvic angles of athletes who run are similar to the above sports’ athletes, making them vulnerable to mechanical stress on the pars interarticularis, too, leading to spondylolysis.

GLUCOSAMINE SUPPLEMENTATION BENEFITS FOR ALL

A recent article explained that endurance athletes experienced intense joint-loading preceding cartilage metabolism and type II collagen degradation. The type II collagen degradation in soccer and rugby players was increased suggesting improved cartilage metabolism compared to that of non-athletes while type II collagen synthesis was nearly equivalent. Glucosamine – a type II collagen – delivered a chondroprotective action on osteoarthritis by blocking type II collagen degradation.
