The shoulder joint is one of the most movable joints in the body that is subject to repeated stress and multiple injuries due to over use of certain overhead activities and movements. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of a period of neuromuscular training on shoulder function in athletes with functional instability.
In this quasi-experimental study, 20 athletes with shoulder instability ranging in age from 22 to 35 years, from districts 1 and 2 of Tehran, 2019 were selected purposefully based on the research criteria, and in two groups (10 experimental group), (10 controls). After obtaining consent form and measuring demographic characteristics of subjects, all subjects were taken YBT-UQ upper extremity function test and shoulder joint range of motion.
Then, in order to investigate the effects of neuromuscular exercises on the mentioned variables, the experimental group performed selected neuromuscular exercises according to defined exercise protocols for eight weeks. The control group subjects also did not perform any specific exercise. Finally, after the end of the training period, the post-test was taken and the data were analyzed by independent and dependent t-tests using SPSS software version 21 at α = 0.05.
The results of this study showed that eight weeks of neuromuscular training had a positive and significant effect on upper extremity balance and range of motion in athletes with functional shoulder instability (P≤0.05).
According to the results of this study, it is recommended that athletes and individuals with neuromuscular disorders as effective exercises in improving upper extremity balance and range of motion whether during exercise and during exercise. Competitions and what to use in their treatment and rehabilitation protocols.
