New Roads athletes – young and older alike – loathe being sidelined from their sports. New Roads Chiropractic Center knows this! New Roads Chiropractic Center offers personalized, effective New Roads chiropractic treatment plans to return athletes experiencing back pain to their sports with more knowledge of prevention and rehabilitation tips to avoid future back pain and keep doing what they love to do.


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 closely for increased 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 3 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 New Roads Chiropractic Center that athletes of all ages and all sports deserve attention when suffering with New Roads back pain.


New Roads back pain sufferers often comment that their back pain came on following a particular seemingly non-hurtful 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, and running athletes are diagnosed with spondylolysis pushing researchers to determine why. They discovered 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. (3) New Roads Chiropractic Center helps New Roads back pain sufferers, athletes and non-athletes alike.


A recent paper explained that endurance athletes has intense joint-loading leading to cartilage metabolism and type II collagen degradation. In soccer and rugby players, the type II collagen degradation was increased indicating improved cartilage metabolism compared to that of non-athletes while type II collagen synthesis was nearly equivalent. Glucosamine – a type II collagen – delivered a chondroprotective action on osteoarthritis by preventing type II collagen degradation. (4) New Roads Chiropractic Center has more detail on glucosamine and chondroitin supplementation benefits for your spine and joints whether you are an athlete or not!
