Exploration study of common injuries and preventions in volleyball


Author(s): Dr. Narender Singh Siwach

Abstract: Every sport has injury problems. Some of them are "overuse", types of injuries such as those seen in joggers' ankles, lower legs, and knees, while others are actuate injuries. In volleyball, finger injuries have gone down over the years due to more passing with the forearms, but ankle sprains have increased because people are jumping higher and more often in spiking and blocking. Passing, digging, and setting are quite safe, but blocking and spiking increase the risk of hand, shoulder, knee, and ankle problems. Scientific studies of injuries do not report a consistent incidence of problems. Generally speaking, volleyball is a very safe game, but as spiking, blocking, and diving for digs have become more commonplace, injury rates have risen over the years due to this more aggressive play.
