Spine Injuries in Sport — Seminar at Scripps

On July 15, three experts – Gregory Mundis Jr., MD, Robert Eastlack, MD, and Yousef Ghandour, PT – gave a presentation on Spine Injuries in Sport at Scripps in San Diego.

Overuse injuries to the spine are common in certain sports and may be due to the rising emphasis on early specialization in sport, frequent year-round competition, and increased pressure by parents and coaches to begin high-intensity training at young ages. An estimated 48% of young athletes complaining of lower back pain were found to have occult spondylolysis.

Presenters provided an overview of the anatomy, mechanism of injury and diagnostics for orthopedic spine injuries. They discussed treatment considerations, including rehab progression, education, prevention of injury, predisposing factors to spine injury, and return to play criteria.
