The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR Cares for Colorado Springs Athletes of All Levels who have Back Pain

Colorado Springs athletes – young and older alike – dislike being sidelined from their sports. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR understands this! The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR offers individualized, effective Colorado Springs chiropractic treatment plans to get athletes experiencing back pain to their sports with more awareness of prevention and rehabilitation tips to avoid future back pain and keep doing what they love to do.

YOUTH ATHLETES, THEIR SPORTS, AND SPONDYLOLYSIS BACK PAIN

Back pain may grip young athletes in a variety 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 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 The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR that athletes of all ages and all sports warrant attention when experiencing Colorado Springs back pain.

MOTIONS INFLUENCING SPONDYLOLYSIS

Colorado Springs back pain sufferers often comment that their back pain came on after a particular 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 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 doesn’t require such motions, and running athletes are diagnosed with spondylolysis prompting researchers to determine why. They found that the spinopelvic angles in 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.

GLUCOSAMINE SUPPLEMENTATION BENEFITS FOR ALL

A recent article explained that endurance athletes has intense joint-loading preceding cartilage metabolism and type II collagen degradation. In soccer and rugby players, the type II collagen degradation was elevated signifying enhanced cartilage metabolism compared to that of non-athletes while type II collagen synthesis was nearly equivalent. Glucosamine – a type II collagen – provided a chondroprotective action on osteoarthritis by preventing type II collagen degradation.
