Influence of Physiological Loading on the Lumbar Spine of National Level Athletes in Different Sports

Introduction Sport and exercise are stressful by their nature, and over-stressful activity may produce injury ( Clement et al., 1981 ). The lumbar spine is subjected to considerable stress during many athletic endeavors; therefore, abnormalities involving this region may cause injuries and pain among athletes because of the unique demands of the related sport. Independent variables that contribute individually or in combination to lumbar spine injury include poor technique, poor conditioning, and abnormal anatomy; thus, young athletes may have a spinal

Management of frailty at individual level: Narrative review of physical activity from the European perspective of joint action on frailty – JA advantage

-ordination and, in general, there is a decrease in the level of physical and functional activity ( 6 ). Reduced physical functioning is the most dominant sign of frailty ( 7 , 8 ). The ageing associated loss of muscle mass seems to be one of the major causes for reduced physical abilities in older age and, consequently, disability and frailty ( 9 ). There are many influences contributing to this process, for example, motor neuron death, and hormonal and immunological changes as a normal part of ageing ( 10 ). On the other hand, there are additional behavioural influences

smooth and coordinated neuromuscular actions ( Winter, 1995 ; Zatsiorsky and Duarte, 1999 ). Efficient postural balance not only reduces the risk of body imbalance, fall, or subsequent injuries, but also contributes to the optimization of motor performance in a number of athletic disciplines ( Hrysomallis, 2007 ; McGuine et al., 2000 ; Watson, 1999 ). Each sport involves specific motor skills that require the completion of particular postures and movements ( Hrysomallis et al., 2006 ; Maurer et al., 2006 ; Paillard, 2017 ). Balance is an important factor in many
