Malverne Health & Wellness Cares for Malverne Athletes of All Levels who have Back Pain

Malverne athletes – young and older alike – detest being sidelined from their sports. Malverne Health & Wellness knows this! Malverne Health & Wellness offers personalized, effective Malverne chiropractic treatment plans to get athletes suffering with back pain to their sports with more knowledge of prevention and rehabilitation ideas to escape 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 suggest that the young person or adolescent with low back pain and back muscle spasm needs to be followed carefully for heightened 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 increased 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 tells Malverne Health & Wellness that athletes of all ages and all sports warrant attention when suffering with Malverne back pain.

MOTIONS INFLUENCING SPONDYLOLYSIS

Malverne back pain sufferers often comment that their back pain came on after a particular really benign move. That’s not uncommon! Past research studies usually 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 seen in baseball batting or pitching practice, soccer shooting practice, and volleyball spiking practice. Running track and field doesn’t demand such motions, and running athletes are seen with spondylolysis prompting researchers to figure out why. They discovered that the spinopelvic angles in running athletes are like those of the above sports’ athletes, putting them in danger of mechanical stress on the pars interarticularis, too, leading to spondylolysis. (3) Malverne Health & Wellness helps Malverne back pain sufferers, athletes and non-athletes the same.

GLUCOSAMINE SUPPLEMENTATION BENEFITS FOR ALL

A recent article explained that endurance athletes experienced intense joint-loading preceding 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 almost equivalent. Glucosamine – a type II collagen – delivered a chondroprotective action on osteoarthritis by blocking type II collagen degradation.
