Abstract
Introduction & Objective: Muscle imbalances caused by repetitive activities above the head affect the upper posture of the body. This pattern becomes a muscle imbalance in sports such as badminton, which is often accompanied by deformities in the shoulder and neck area. Therefore, the aim of the present study was to Comparison of the effect of selected corrective protocol with and without vibration on neck and shoulder alignment in badminton players with shoulder and neck deformities.
Methodology: Thirty-six male badminton players with neck and shoulder deformities in Boroujerd were selected in a purposeful and accessible manner and were randomly divided into three groups of 12 without vibration corrective protocol, vibration corrective protocol and control group. The non-vibration correction training protocol included an 8-week neck and shoulder corrective protocol according to the NASM approach using rolling foam. Corrective protocol (supplementation) with vibration, in two parts were flexible (at the beginning of the session, with a frequency of five to 18 Hz and a range of two to four millimeters) and strength (with a frequency of 50 Hz and a maximum of two minutes of training). Complementary vibration training were performed in three to four sets of two minutes (maximum), with a rest of 60 to 90 seconds. To assess shoulder deformity, a manual inclinometer was used and to evaluate neck deformity, the Clinometer application installed on the iPhone was used. Data analysis was performed by one-way analysis of variance and Tukey post hoc test.
Results: The results showed that corrective protocol with and without vibration improved neck and shoulder orientation in the experimental groups of the two experimental groups, however, there was no significant difference between the effects of corrective training with and without vibration on the sense of joint condition and the direction of the subjects' neck and shoulders.
Conclusion: In designing and implementing a corrective protocol with the aim of correcting neck and shoulder deformities in badminton players, performing a selected corrective protocol with vibration intervention can improve asymmetric neck and shoulder deformity in badminton players.
