Default A guide to back injuries

hears something come across on bbc page thought may help few peoplle


Back injuries are quite common in sport, with most athletes suffering from them at some stage in their career.



WHO?

Duncan Ferguson, Andrew Flintoff and Pat Rafter have all had back problems throughout their careers.

And Tim Henman is having to deal with back problems in the twilight of his career.



HOW?

Too much strain on the spine and back muscles.

Since the back is a major part of the body, different areas get injured playing sport.

You can also get back injuries from doing day to day activities like lifting heavy objects.

Athletes who play contact sports are more likely to suffer from back problems.

They are, however, also common in tennis, golf and cricket.



CAN BACK INJURIES END SPORTING CAREERS?

It depends on the injury.

If it is a spinal injury, then it can be very dangerous.

In the most severe cases, it can lead to paralysis - the loss of use of the legs.

Because the back is very complex, one injury can often affect another part of the spine.



Doctors and physiotherapists use X-rays to see whether the spine has been affected.

But they also use a series of questions and short tests to find out whether the problem is muscular.

Back injuries are often very painful and prevent athletes from training.



WHAT ARE THE MAIN PARTS OF THE BACK?

The main bone in the back is the spine.

The spine is made up of little bones called vertebrates sitting on top of each other.

There are 24 vertebrates in the back. They are:


Seven cervical (neck) vertebrae
12 thoracic (chest) vertebrae
Five lumbar (lower back) vertebrae
Ligaments and muscles are attached to each vertebrae to allow the back to move around without causing any damage.

In between each vertebrae are disks of fibro cartilage - the back's version of shock absorbers.

These disks contain a jelly-like fluid which help the back move around freely.



TREATMENT

Certain back injuries, like vertebrae fractures, may require surgery because they can cause damage to the rest of the spinal cord.

But other injuries, like muscle tears, aren't as serious.

Massages, physiotherapy and rest are the best ways to get back to full fitness.



RETURN?

Again, it depends on how serious the injury is.

Muscle strains and tears can take anywhere between two to eight weeks to heal.

But more serious injuries, for example a slipped back disk, can take a lot longer to recover from.

Athletes must avoid doing any activities which can harm their recovery.

So for a fast bowler, physiotherapists would advise them not to bowl until their injury has cleared up.



TREATMENT

Certain back injuries, like vertebrae fractures, may require surgery because they can cause damage to the rest of the spinal cord.

But other injuries, like muscle tears, aren't as serious.

Massages, physiotherapy and rest are the best ways to get back to full fitness.

What is the actual problem? Disc, nerve, muscle or something else? Just wondering in case I've had a similar problem.

I've been told lower lumbar strain, muscle spasm, hips are out of alignment, neck is out of alignment. I feel like I'm being given the run-around. Every specialty provider tells me something different. Primary care provider will not do an MRI unless they determine I need surgery. I'm like "how are you going to determine if I need surgery if you don't do any soft-tissue diagnostics? I had an xray a few months ago and was told there is no spinal issues. I'm pretty certain it's done you're of soft-tissue damage, but I don't underrated why it's not healing. Well, I am pretty stressed out so I'm sure that interferes with the healing process, but it's been an awfully long time time.
