How to protect your spine from your tennis serve http://www.tennisidentity.com/2017/ 02/how-to-protect-your-spine-fromyour-tennis-serve.html When most people think about chronic injuries that occur from tennis, they usually think of “tennis elbow.” But if you ask a serious tennis player about the most common tennis-related injuries, low back pain will almost always make that list. There’s good reason for that. We spoke with Dr. Todd Lanman, a spine surgeon in Beverly Hills, California. He says that: “imaging studies such as MRI show that 62% of serious amateur, elite, and professional tennis players have injuries in the spine in their lower backs. In fact, four out of ten professional tennis players admit to missing at least one tennis tournament because of low back pain.” So while low back pain and spine injury may not be as famous as an injury in that other joint, it is clearly a big problem for tennis players.

If you’re an avid player, you’ve probably thought a lot about your serve. But you may not have thought a lot about how your body is affected by your serve. Dr. Lanman states, “One of the most common causes of back pain and injury to tennis players is the serve. You place extreme forces on your spine during a tennis serve.” Dr. Lanman is a world-renowned spine surgeon at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. As a top back and neck surgery specialist practicing in Beverly Hills, he counts many professional athletes, business leaders, and entertainment luminaries among his clients.
