Scapula in cricket bowlers without shoulder problem


Author(s): Dr. P Sathya and Tanmaee Dhopaokar

Abstract: The purpose of this study was to assess the scapula position in pace bowlers and spinners without any acute shoulder injury. The right hand dominant cricket players of the age group 17-21yrs were selected. All the players were assessed for weight, height, BMI. Kibler’s Modified lateral scapular slide test was used to assess scapular position on each player. The results of the study showed that the P3 position i.e., unloaded scaption position was affected in pace bowlers and the P7 position i.e., players taking their arm beyond 90degrees along the markers of the scaption without any weights was affected in spinners. The risk prediction analysis reveals that pace bowlers were at a higher risk of shoulder injury in the unloaded scaption position than the spinners.
