Abstract

競技スポーツは健康を目的とした運動に比べ, 身体に強い負荷を与える。特に女子選手においては, 身体の消耗が激しいため月経不順, 慢性疲労を始めとした体調不良に陥りやすい。そのため, 選手は練習プログラムの未消化, 成績の悪化, 競技の継続困難をきたすこともある。我々は, スポーツトレーニング負荷で生じる身体症状と血液検査所見および漢方医学的所見の関係, さらに身体症状に対する漢方薬投与の有効性について検討した。対象は陸上自衛隊東北方面隊女子駅伝チーム9名 (19歳から27歳, 中央値19歳) である。トレーニング負荷前後でHb, BUN, AST, ALT, CPKの測定, 漢方医学的診察, 身体症状の聴取を行った。身体症状出現予防に桂枝茯苓丸, 六君子湯, 四物湯をトレーニング期間中に投与し, 症状の変化について調査した。トレーニング負荷によりCPKが500IU/l以上になる症例では, 全身倦怠感, 膝痛, 腰痛などの身体症状が出現し, 漢方医学的所見として小腹にお血の圧痛が認められた。漢方薬投与により, トレーニングに伴う各種自覚症状は完全に消失し, 計画的にトレーニングを行うことができた。選手の記録は全例で向上した。以上の成績は, スポーツ選手の管理に漢方薬を利用することが有用であることを強く示唆する。

From a point of stress, the competitive sports are totally different from exercises for the health promotion. It would be even harmful especially for middle-distance or long-distance women runner. It brings them paramenia, defatigation and other orthopedic troubles which makes them unable to exercise further more.<br>We have investigated the possibility of the preventive use of Kampo Medicine for those athletes and found that it is useful. The nine women who belong to the Tohoku-Region women team of long-distance relay road race had received Kampo medical treatment for 7 months. Serum CPK and AST were elevated with training exercise. In the cases whose CPK level was above 500 IU/l, most of them suffered from fatigue, leg pain, low back pain, and lower abdominal pain, which is very important for Kampo diagnosis. Because these symptoms unable athletes to exercise as planned, we understand that for the improvement of physical capacity, it is important to prevent those symptoms. For the treatment and prevention of the symptoms, we prescribed Keishibukuryogan, Rikkunshito, and Shimotsuto. We defined preventive medication period as “Mibyou” and continued to use Kampo medicine for 7 months. During the period, they were free from any troubles that would make them unable to exercise. These medicines enabled them to improve their records drastically. This study shows that preventive use of Kampo Medicine is extremely effective for any athletes to maintain their good conditions.
