I have had back problems since late teens and now at 29 have finally had a diagnosis of Spondyloarthritis.
I am heavily into my sports and since being on the 15mg of prednisalone I have managed to get back t my sports and gym routine.
the question I have is that of contact sports.
I have read online that people with this type of arthrits are more susceptible to spinal fractures so was wondering whether I should avoid contact sports. I love kickboxing and often spar with the guys quite heavily. I would like to know whether this is safe to do so???
