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

determine sizes of intervertebral discs, vertebra and the shape of the vertebral column. Our findings showed that in cricket players, movements involved the frequent hyper extension and rotation of the spinal column, which could be hypothesized to lead to a height reduction in the intervertebral discs; therefore, repeated hyper extension and body acceleration could have larger negative effects on the discs in levels L2/3, L3/4 and L4/5. Greater signs of disc degeneration of the lumbar spine could be demonstrated in cricket players compared with basketball and field
