Wilson Family Chiropractic Cares for Millville Athletes of All Levels who have Back Pain

Millville athletes – young and older alike – detest being sidelined from their sports. Wilson Family Chiropractic knows this! Wilson Family Chiropractic offers personalized, effective Millville chiropractic treatment plans to get athletes suffering with back pain to their activities with more knowledge of prevention and rehabilitation tips to escape future back pain and keep participating in what they love to do.

YOUTH ATHLETES, THEIR SPORTS, AND SPONDYLOLYSIS BACK PAIN

Back pain may grip young athletes in a range 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 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 prowess may significantly influence the risk of spondylolysis in athletes. (2) This tells Wilson Family Chiropractic that athletes of all ages and all sports warrant attention when experiencing Millville back pain.

MOTIONS INFLUENCING SPONDYLOLYSIS

Millville back pain sufferers often comment that their back pain came on after a certain really benign move. That’s not uncommon! Past research studies often pointed to repetitive motion of the lumbar spine into extension, rotation or a combination of these as key risk factors for spondylolysis. Such motions were seen in practicing baseball batting/pitching, soccer shooting, and volleyball spiking. Running track and field does not demand such motions, yet running athletes are seen with spondylolysis prompting researchers to figure out why. They found that the spinopelvic angles in athletes who run are similar to the above sports’ athletes, making them vulnerable to mechanical stress on the pars interarticularis, too, leading to spondylolysis.

GLUCOSAMINE SUPPLEMENTATION BENEFITS FOR ALL

A recent paper noted that endurance athletes has intense joint-loading preceding cartilage metabolism and type II collagen degradation. The type II collagen degradation in soccer and rugby players was elevated signifying improved cartilage metabolism compared to that of non-athletes while type II collagen synthesis was almost the same. Glucosamine – a type II collagen – delivered a chondroprotective action on osteoarthritis by blocking type II collagen degradation.
