Example text

Unfortunately, in a small percentage of patients this pain can become chronic and in all those who have become disabled for more than 1 year, up to 90% will never work again without aggressive intervention. Furthermore, in a small number of patients, back pain may be the presenting symptom of serious diseases such as cancer. Therefore it is important that clinicians who assess athletes with back pain recognise the “red flag” signs of serious diseases. These are listed in Table 2. Table 1 Differential diagnosis for low back pain.

It is also common among athletes, in particular in those competing in sports such as wrestling, gymnastics and weight lifting. The forces imposed on the athlete’s back are often much greater than those of non-athletes. Furthermore, these larger forces are often sustained for longer duration. Back pain in athletes occurs either as the result of an acute traumatic event or a repetitive activity that causes fatigue injuries. 26 Sports Medicine Aetiology Back pain is not a diagnosis, but a symptom, which could occur as a result of a number of conditions.
