Rout S and Sinha AGKAbstract: Background:
Range of motion around the joint is the flexibility, which is important for sports performance and injury prevention. Normative data are obtained from a reference population that establishes the baseline distribution for a measurement against which the assessed measurement can be compared. However, studies on normative joint range of motion in India are not widely available.
Objective: To obtain the normative data of shoulder and elbow joint range of motion in archery and hockey players of age group 11-40 years of Punjab.
Method: A sample of 402 players consisting 210 hockey (92 males and 118 females) and 190 archery (102 males and 90 females) players wasselected through convenient sampling.Joint range of motion measurement was done using a universal goniometer.
Result: The normative data of shoulder joint range of motion of hockey players for flexion, extension, abduction, internal rotation, and external rotation are (177-178), (76-77), (176-177), (73) and (84-85) in degrees, respectively. The corresponding values for archery players are (175-177), (74-75), (174-175), (68-86), and (86-87) in degrees, respectively.
