The connection between totally different sport actions and lumbar intervertebral disk degeneration (DD) is essentially unknown. We evaluated whether or not adolescent participation in several sports activities is related to lumbar DD in a population-based start cohort of younger adults. A complete of 558 younger adults (325 females and 233 males) underwent magnetic resonance imaging (MRI, 1.5-T scanner). A DD sum rating, based mostly on the Pfirrmann grading, was calculated for all lumbar ranges. The sum rating was categorized into no DD, 1, 2, or at the very least three. Participation in several sport actions was self-reported by postal surveys at 16, 18, and 19 years, and three teams have been fashioned based mostly on participation frequency in 11 sports activities: (a) extremely energetic (at the very least twice per week), (b) reasonably energetic (2-Four occasions a month), and (c) inactive (most as soon as a month). Cumulative odds ratios (COR) and their 95% confidence intervals (CI) have been obtained for every sport by ordinal logistic regression, adjusting for gender, physique mass index, age, socioeconomic standing, smoking, and different sports activities. Extremely energetic participation in jogging/working and swimming was related to the next DD sum rating (COR: three.zero; 95% CI: 1.Four-6.three and 5.zero; 1.7-15.2, respectively) in comparison with inactive participation, whereas extremely energetic participation in skating confirmed low COR. In conclusion, working and swimming at the very least twice per week in early maturity are probably related to lumbar DD. Comply with-up research with MRI are wanted to indicate whether or not frequent publicity to working or swimming has additional impact on the integrity of lumbar intervertebral disks.
