Shoulder injuries associated with the throwing and fielding demands of the game are common in cricketers. Hence, the purpose of study was to check the prevalence of scapular dysfunction in young amateur cricketers with or without shoulder problem. 150 young amateur cricketers were taken from various clubs and cricket academies. Scapular measurement taken on the basis of kibler’s lateral scapula slide test in three different positions, first is 900
and last is neutral position. Measurements collected at the end of all three tests. Results shows there was no prevalence of scapular dysfunction with or without shoulder problem in young amateur cricketers.The difference in the scapular position between shoulder pain group and with no shoulder pain group was not statistically significant.
There was no significant pattern of involvement which is accounting to scapular dysfunction.
The difference between the dominant and the non dominant side for scapular position was also not statistically significant. Pages: 402-407 | 622 Views 25 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
