In terms of overall athleticism, other than the obvious extremities that take on more skillful duties in performance (arms, legs, fingers ie.), the back, specifically lower, is pivotal in athletic movement. The main bolstering force in the lower back is the lumbar vertebrae, which on the upper end are connected to the thoracic portion of the spine, and on the lower end transform into the various processes of the sacrum. The lower back is highly involved in bending and stabilizing during athletic movement, while also being favorably responsible for not only producing but absorbing force as well. Men’s Football has the highest rate of occurrence in injuries compared to all other collegiate sports (Hassebrock 2019). This is a product of the various specificities of the game of football such as groundbreaking speed and strength, along with some psychological group-centered constructs.
