Mohammed Anfal N and Dr. Dhinu MRAbstract:
The purpose of the study was to assess the common sports injuries among intercollegiate level male boxers. A total of sixty (N=60) inter collegiate level male boxers in different colleges from the Calicut University were selected as subjects and their age ranged from 17 to 22 years. The subjects had represented the college at least once in intercollegiate level competitions. The present study was based on common injuries to the players and their causes, reasons, method of treatment to injuries, other related aspects and personal profile. The data were collected through questionnaire and followed by personal interviews of the players. The percentage analysis was employed to analyze the incidence of common injuries. The following conclusions were drawn based on the results of the study. The majority of injuries occurred to the boxers were on upper extremities, head and faces. Subjects repeatedly got injuries at the same part and injuries occurred during both practice and competition sessions. Injuries affected the performance capacities of the players both physically and psychologically. Boxing requires a variety of physical attributes and specific playing skills. Participants should be trained to meet the physical, physiological and psychological requirements to cope with demands of play and reduce the risk of injury. It is recommended that the physical education teachers the coaches and the players should be given proper education and training with respect to the need for conditioning programs during practice sessions and the use of correct techniques during competitive boxing to avoid injuries.Pages: 04-06 | 1065 Views 26 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
