It is estimated that 1.6 million Americans suffer from Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), with as many as 70,000 new cases diagnosed annually IBD is a broad term that describes conditions with chronic or recurring immune response and inflammation to the gastrointestinal tract and encompasses a continuum of clinical disorders.
The cause of IBD is not entirely understood, however, a genetic predisposition with an environmental trigger can initiate a harmful immune system response in the intestines. Differential diagnosis of IBD includes appendicitis, celiac disease, eating disorders, food poisoning, gastroenteritis, irritable bowel syndrome, and salmonellosis. Gastrointestinal problems are common in athletics, especially in endurance athletes, which makes referral for IBD challenging.
With no current cure for IBD, therapy goals include reduction of inflammation to achieve symptom relief, long-term remission, and reduce the risk of complications.
1. Differentiate between irritable bowel syndrome, inflammatory bowel disease, and other comorbidities.
2. Identify the role of the athletic trainer in referral, diagnosis, treatment and return to play/activity in inflammatory bowel disease.
3. Understand medical intervention and monitoring of inflammatory bowel disease as well as effective adjunctive treatment plans such as psychological referrals, nutritional counseling, and stress management.
4. Formulate return to play/activity protocol for patient/athletes with inflammatory bowel disease
