Chiropractic Solutions Cares for San Jose Athletes of All Levels who have Back Pain

San Jose athletes – young and older alike – hate to be sidelined from their sports. Chiropractic Solutions understands this! Chiropractic Solutions offers personalized, effective San Jose 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 affect young athletes in a range of sports. Researchers suggest that the young person or adolescent with low back pain and back muscle spasm should be followed closely 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 was affected by 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 impact the risk of spondylolysis in athletes. (2) This just goes to show Chiropractic Solutions that athletes of all ages and all sports deserve attention when suffering with San Jose back pain.

MOTIONS INFLUENCING SPONDYLOLYSIS

San Jose back pain sufferers frequently comment that their back pain came on following a particular seemingly benign 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 key 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 seen with spondylolysis pushing researchers to determine why. They discovered that the spinopelvic angles in running athletes 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 paper noted that endurance athletes has 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 – delivered a chondroprotective action on osteoarthritis by preventing type II collagen degradation.
