Rotational cuff injuries Along with the tendons of the rotational cuff, in the supraspinatal “exit” there is a subacromial sac, which on top borders two ligaments – medial-acromial and beak-acromial. If one of them is damaged or swollen, the so-called “pinch syndrome” or impingement syndrome occurs in this area, but this phenomenon is secondary to the actual injuries. If there is swelling or muscle hypertrophy in the supraspinatal “exit”, then the second and all subsequent movements of the athlete above the head will only lead to an increase in swelling and the appearance of reactive inflammation. As a result, bone injuries may occur, and further repetitions may even lead to rupture of the rotational cuff. Most often, injuries of the tendon of the supraspinatus muscle occur, because it is located between the acromion of the scapula and the humerus. In this case, inflammation can spread to the subacromial bag, which is a possible cause of subacromial bursitis. Continue reading
Volleyball players injure their fingers very often. Most often this happens when the block is executed, when the ball hits the set finger. This can happen even with professionals.
Novice athletes injure their fingers even with a simple pass or ball. Finger injuries are primarily sprains, fractures and dislocations of the fingers. It is not possible to accurately track the statistics of finger injuries in volleyball due to the fact that the athlete does not stop the game with a finger injury, but continues to play, fixing the injured finger, for example, with a band-aid.
