You can experience a back spasm in almost every sport, but especially in those that involve sudden hip movement (i.e. baseball, tennis, golf). And it seems to me the best way to improve any back pains would be to simply rest your body and refrain from any heavy lifting. I'm an avid Mets fan, and I was dumbstruck when Jerry Manuel decided to put Delgado back on the roster not too long after his back surgery. Delgado's back surgery had been a success and his spring training was going well, but due to the lack of power hitters in the line up, Delgado sacrificed yet another season for the Mets shortly after his return due to another injury.

Living in Boston, I'm always surrounded by news of the Red Sox. And last week, back spasms hit the team's first baseman, Kevin Youkilis. He was out for three games with them. It seems to me like back spasms are pretty common in baseball players. In the past month, the condition affected Pittsburgh Pirate Delwyn Young, Texas Ranger Josh Hamilton and San Fransisco Giant Tim Lincecum. Back spasms, caused by an abnormal contraction of muscle, often hit athletes in sports other than baseball as well. The list includes weight-lighting, football, basketball and golf. Here's a link with some more information: Anyone experience a back spasm while playing a sport? How long did it take you to recover?
