Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic Cares for Montreal Athletes of All Levels who have Back Pain

Montreal athletes – young and older alike – detest being sidelined from their sports. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic knows this! Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic offers individualized, useful Montreal chiropractic treatment plans to get athletes experiencing back pain to their sports with more awareness of prevention and rehabilitation ideas to escape future back pain and keep doing what they love to do.


Back pain may affect young athletes in a range 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 3 sports were gymnastics (34%), marching band (31%), and softball (30%). Geography and level of athletic prowess may significantly impact the risk of spondylolysis in athletes. (2) This just goes to show Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic that athletes of all ages and all sports deserve attention when experiencing Montreal back pain.


Montreal back pain sufferers frequently comment that their back pain came on following a certain seemingly benign move. That’s not uncommon! Past research studies often indicated that repetitive motion of the lumbar spine into extension, rotation or a combination of these as important risk factors for spondylolysis. Such motions were seen in practicing baseball batting/pitching, soccer shooting, and volleyball spiking. Running track and field doesn’t require such motions, and running athletes are diagnosed with spondylolysis pushing 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. (3) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic helps Montreal back pain sufferers, athletes and non-athletes alike.


A recent paper noted 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 increased suggesting enhanced cartilage metabolism compared to that of non-athletes while type II collagen synthesis was almost equivalent. Glucosamine – a type II collagen – provided a chondroprotective action on osteoarthritis by preventing type II collagen degradation.
