Your back pain during golf could be due to spinal defects.

Spondylolysis is a defect in the pars interarticularis in the spinal vertebra. This is quite common in young athletes, especially those that participate in a sports activity that involves repeated hyperextension of the lumbar spine. This can cause low back pain in young athletes, and these young adults are more susceptible to low back pain when they grow older. The back pain can be reproduced by hyperextending and rotating the lumbar spine with the back in a hyperlordotic position. Palpatory tenderness is most commonly found next to the midline of the spine. If both the pars interarticularis are defective, the associated spinal segment may slip forward or backward, resulting in anterolisthesis or retrolisthesis. This can lead to pain, numbness, and a tingling sensation that radiates into the leg. The signs and symptoms will be very similar to discogenic pain.

Lower back pain can result from facet joint dysfunction and irritation. Facet joint syndrome can be very similar to spondylosis as the low back pain is often aggravated by hyperextension and rotation. Axial compression of the facet joints can result in pain in the lower back too. Inflammation and irritation of the synovial facet joints can cause pain in young athletes. At the same time, degenerative changes in an osteoarthritic facet joint are a prevalent cause of low back pain in older patients.

    I have a herniated disc between L4 & L5. It started a few years ago. I have had steroid injections, but the pain is still there. Now it is interfering with my daily life. What do I need to do to get better?

      Dear Mohd Yusri,
      Please accept our apologies for not replying sooner to your comment. I understand that you have had steroid injections but still suffer pain, especially when you play golf. Sciatica, back pain, and leg pain is common symptoms of bulging or herniated disc in the lower back. In addition to pain, some also report tingling, numbness, burning sensations, and weakness in one or both legs. The L4-L5 spinal segments of the back are the most common site for a herniated or bulging disc.

      You should start a practical conservative course of care that targets the L4-L5 without injections or surgery. Steroid injections are not helpful. Moreover, they expedite the degenerative changes in your spinal discs, muscles, ligaments, and joints, causing more harm to your spine than the disc herniation at the L4 & L5. The best non-surgical treatment program is NSD Therapy®. If you want to learn more about NSD Therapy®, don’t hesitate to contact our main center on 03 2093 1000; we can help.
