Auburn athletes – young and older alike – dislike being sidelined from their sports. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. knows this!

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 should 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.


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.

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.
