Back pain may affect 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 closely 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 Aaron Chiropractic Clinic that athletes of all ages and all sports warrant attention when experiencing Fort Wayne back pain.


Fort Wayne back pain sufferers frequently comment that their back pain came on after a particular really non-hurtful 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 as important risk factors for spondylolysis. Such motions were noted in practicing baseball batting/pitching, soccer shooting, and volleyball spiking. Running track and field doesn’t demand such motions, yet running athletes are diagnosed with spondylolysis prompting researchers to determine why. They discovered that the spinopelvic angles of running athletes are like those of the above sports’ athletes, making them vulnerable to mechanical stress on the pars interarticularis, too, leading to spondylolysis.

A new 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 almost the same. Glucosamine – a type II collagen – delivered a chondroprotective action on osteoarthritis by blocking type II collagen degradation.
