The Novelli Wellness Center offers individualized, useful Buffalo, NY chiropractic treatment plans to return athletes suffering with back pain to their sports with more awareness of prevention and rehabilitation ideas to escape future back pain and keep doing what they love to do.

YOUTH ATHLETES, THEIR SPORTS, AND SPONDYLOLYSIS BACK PAIN

Back pain may grip young athletes in a variety of sports. Researchers suggest that the young person or adolescent with low back pain and back muscle spasm should be followed closely for increased 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 three 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 The Novelli Wellness Center that athletes of all ages and all sports warrant attention when suffering with Buffalo, NY back pain.

MOTIONS INFLUENCING SPONDYLOLYSIS

Buffalo, NY back pain sufferers often comment that their back pain came on following a particular seemingly 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 as important risk factors for spondylolysis. Such motions were seen in practicing baseball batting/pitching, soccer shooting, and volleyball spiking. Running track and field doesn’t demand such motions, and running athletes are seen with spondylolysis pushing researchers to determine why. They discovered that the spinopelvic angles of running athletes 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 article noted that endurance athletes experienced intense joint-loading preceding cartilage metabolism and type II collagen degradation. In soccer and rugby players, the type II collagen degradation was elevated indicating enhanced 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.
