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 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 was affected by spondylolysis. By sport, males’ top
three 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 influence the risk of
spondylolysis in athletes. (2) This just goes to show Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C.
that athletes of all ages and all sports deserve attention when experiencing Auburn back pain.
MOTIONS INFLUENCING SPONDYLOLYSIS
Auburn back pain sufferers frequently
comment that their back pain came on following a certain
seemingly non-hurtful move. That’s not uncommon! Past
research reports usually indicated that
repetitive motion of the lumbar spine into extension, rotation or a combination
of these to be important risk factors for spondylolysis. Such
motions were noted in baseball batting or pitching practice, soccer
shooting practice, and volleyball spiking practice. Running track and field does not require such motions, yet running athletes
are diagnosed with spondylolysis pushing
researchers to figure out why. They found that
the spinopelvic angles of athletes who run are similar to the above sports’ athletes, putting them in danger of mechanical stress
on the pars interarticularis, too, leading to spondylolysis. (3) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C.

GLUCOSAMINE SUPPLEMENTATION BENEFITS FOR ALL
A new article explained
that endurance athletes experienced intense joint-loading leading
to cartilage metabolism and type II collagen degradation. The type II
collagen degradation in soccer and rugby players was elevated signifying
enhanced cartilage metabolism compared to that of non-athletes
while type II collagen synthesis was nearly the same.
Glucosamine – a type II collagen – delivered a chondroprotective
action on osteoarthritis by blocking type II collagen
degradation. (4) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. has more information on
glucosamine and chondroitin supplementation benefits for your spine and joints
whether you’re an athlete or not!
