The effect of exercises with shockwave therapy on rehabilitating shoulder muscle tears in discus throwers
Author(s): Rana Qays Sultan
Abstract:
The aim of the study was to develop rehabilitative exercises accompanied by shockwave therapy for the study sample, and to determine the effect of using rehabilitative exercises with shockwave therapy on rehabilitating the study sample. The researcher adopted a single-group experimental method, and the research population was selected from frozen shoulder patients in various hospitals and centers in Baghdad, where the number of patients with this injury reached 53. The research sample consisted of 7 intentionally selected patients, representing a percentage of 13.20% of the original population. This sample was intentionally chosen due to its proximity to the researcher's location and rehabilitation center. Based on the research results, the researcher reached the following conclusions: there was an improvement in the condition of simple shoulder joint mobility among the research sample between pre-test and post-test in experimental groups. Shockwave therapy had a positive effect on improving range of motion in the experimental research sample. The exercises used also reduced pain levels among frozen shoulder patients. Based on these conclusions, the researcher recommends adopting shockwave therapy and its accompanying exercises to improve simple shoulder joint injuries due to their positive results in improving such injuries. Furthermore, emphasis should be placed on raising awareness about sports injuries among athletes and how to address them promptly to prevent further damage.
