Most Chiropractic Clinic Cares for Murfreesboro Athletes of All Levels who have Back Pain

Murfreesboro athletes – young and older alike – dislike being sidelined from their sports. Most Chiropractic Clinic understands this! Most Chiropractic Clinic offers individualized, useful Murfreesboro chiropractic treatment plans to get athletes experiencing back pain to their sports with more awareness of prevention and rehabilitation tips to escape future back pain and keep doing what they love to do.

YOUTH ATHLETES, THEIR SPORTS, AND SPONDYLOLYSIS BACK PAIN

Back pain may affect young athletes in a range of sports. Researchers propose that the young person or adolescent with low back pain and back muscle spasm should be followed carefully for heightened 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 3 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 Most Chiropractic Clinic that athletes of all ages and all sports deserve attention when experiencing Murfreesboro back pain.

MOTIONS INFLUENCING SPONDYLOLYSIS

Murfreesboro back pain sufferers often comment that their back pain came on after a certain seemingly non-hurtful move. That’s not uncommon! Past research reports often 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, and running athletes are diagnosed with spondylolysis prompting researchers to figure out why. They found that the spinopelvic angles of athletes who run are like those of the above sports’ athletes, placing them at risk of mechanical stress on the pars interarticularis, too, leading to spondylolysis.

GLUCOSAMINE SUPPLEMENTATION BENEFITS FOR ALL

A current paper noted 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 increased signifying enhanced cartilage metabolism compared to that of non-athletes while type II collagen synthesis was nearly the same. Glucosamine – a type II collagen – provided a chondroprotective action on osteoarthritis by blocking type II collagen degradation.
