Description

When examining patients with sports-related and exercise-related injuries, a thorough knowledge of anatomy is vital in order to make an accurate diagnosis and work out an effective treatment plan. In this helpful, practical book, a professional anatomist and a sports physiotherapist have combined their expertise to give a detailed explanation of the structural and functional anatomy of the back. The book includes descriptions and images of the relevant anatomy, and sample clinical problems (with model answers) throughout.

Although each problem is different, practitioners will always follow a similar pattern in arriving at a differential diagnosis. In every case, four main areas need to be covered: the type of sport; the clinical history; physical assessment; and appropriate investigations. By taking a logical, step-by-step approach to solving clinical problems, this book offers a valuable resource for the wide range of health professionals who manage back problems and injuries.

  • Vertical trauma along the spine resulting from falls on to the feet or head often converts to a flexion fracture at the level of T9-L2 vertebrae. The coccyx may be damaged by direct force.

  • The S-shape of the curvatures has been interpreted to allow cushioning of vertical compression forces – for instance, those exerted during walking, running and jumping, or in falling from a height on to the feet.

  • The spinal nerve and dorsal root ganglion (Figure 7) lie in the intervertebral foramen, close to the intervertebral disc and facet (zygapophyseal) joints where the nerve is vulnerable to en-croachment.

  • Vertical trauma along the spine resulting from falls on to the feet or head often converts to a flexion fracture at the level of T9-L2 vertebrae.

  • Spondylolysis (Figure 17) is any spinal lesion of a degenerative nature which may be dysplastic (developmental) or due to cumulative micro-trauma to the posterior bony elements or facet joints.
