Finger injury may be acute or induced.
Volleyball injuries can be caused by inadequate blocking technique, speed of a spiked ball, inadequate anatomic position in contact with the ball.
Prevention: proper technique of the block, preventive bandaged fingers. The thumb is the most common injury, so when bandaging it first you must bandaged thumb, and then starting from the wrist you need to bandage whole thumb.
The symptoms of thumb injury: pain when the thumb is moving, pain in the web of the thumb. Continue Reading
Elbow joint connects three bones (Humerus, Ulna, Radius), muscles, ligaments, and links. The elbow joint must have a certain mobility and strength. There are three types of elbow injuries that can happen in volleyball: tennis elbow, golfers elbow and throwers elbow. Volleyball players during training use different throws and movements that are similar to these sports, while serving and spike have similar kinematic structure.
Tennis elbow is an inflammation of the tendon that connects the extensor muscles with external epikondilom. These are the long muscles on the outer side of the forearm that help to open up and correct the hand and wrist. Continue Reading
Back Pain is a common volleyball injury in which particularly sensitive part is lumbar spine. Lumbar spine consists of five vertebrae, vertebral discs, ligaments and muscles. It provides strength and agility of the body. Loin backbone establishes connection between the legs and part of the body above the pelvis.
Symptoms: absence of extension, flexion and rotation.
Mechanisms: unbalanced technical jumps and drops, back muscle weakness, fatigue.
1. Quality and adequate preparation:
- a medical examination before the start of season,
- testing 4-6 weeks before the start of season,
- various training,
- individual approach to the exercise selection,
- previous preparation and preventive care are obliged to exercise power, Continue Reading
With inclusion in the program of Olympic games, volleyball gets more important as a competitive sport with the increasing number of athletes in particular and the length of training. Therefore, the number of injuries are increasing. Many of these injuries can be avoided by good training organization.
Coaches and volleyball players are required to know the types of injuries, the main causes of injury, injury mechanisms and procedures after the injury, because they usually happen to them and they are the first who can help themselves and others.
Volleyball is a fun game where relaxation and imagination can lead to sudden movements, uncomfortable positions and downs that may cause injury. Continue Reading
The shoulder has the greatest range of motion of any joint in the body. It is our shoulders that allow us to put our hands where they need to be for work, play, and all of our daily activities. To manage this, the shoulder has to have the right balance of strength, flexibility, and stability. Loss of this balance can lead to pain and injury. Maintaining this balance through exercises aimed at stretching and strengthening can help avoid shoulder problems.
The rotator cruff muscles
Without learned muscle control, any overhead activity, let alone just lifting the arm, would be impossible. The muscle group for this control is the rotator cuff (RC) muscles – the infraspinatus, supraspinatus, teres minor, and subscapularis muscles. The muscles primarily designed to position the scapula for overhead movement are the trapezius, and serratus anterior. The larger and more powerful muscles that generate movements of the arm are the deltoids, latissimus dorsi, and pectoralis major.
Ankle injuries are among the most common injuries in sport. Ankle sprain is the most common injury in virtually all epidemiological studies. Being the first part of the kinetic chain to withstand the impact of running, twisting, pushing off and landing, the ankle and foot must, within fractions of a second, distribute the impact higher up the chain in complex flexion, extension, eversion and inversion movements of the talo-crural joint and supination and pronation at the mid-foot. The faster the movement, the more important is the balancing act and proprioceptive function of the ankle.
