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 needs to 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 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 ability may significantly influence the risk of spondylolysis in athletes. (2) This tells Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation that athletes of all ages and all sports deserve attention when suffering with Tonawanda back pain.


Tonawanda back pain sufferers frequently comment that their back pain came on after a particular really non-hurtful move. That’s not uncommon! Past research reports often 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, and running athletes are seen with spondylolysis prompting researchers to determine why. They discovered that the spinopelvic angles of running athletes are similar to the above sports’ athletes, making them vulnerable to mechanical stress on the pars interarticularis, too, leading to spondylolysis.

A new article explained that endurance athletes has intense joint-loading leading to cartilage metabolism and type II collagen degradation. In soccer and rugby players, the type II collagen degradation was elevated signifying 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.
