Abstract

Association of Shoulder Injuries in Fast Bowling Cricket Players: A Systematic Review

Madhan K* and Manikumar

Cricket is a safe sport with a relatively low overall player injury rate but, due to the extreme stress of repetitive vigorous shoulder loading, fast bowlers are highly prone to injuries, with bowlers accounting for 45%-60% of all injuries suffered by cricketers. Shoulder joint injuries are especially common, accounting for one-fifth to one-third of all injuries sustained by cricketers. Aim of the study is to evaluate the association of shoulder joint injuries in fast bowling cricket players. The objective of the study is to systematically review the literature on the association of shoulder joint injuries in fast bowling cricket players. Studies were collected from databases such as pubmed central, google scholar, rehab data, research gate, and SAGE journals. Studies such as clinical trials, randomized controlled trial were included, excluding reviews and case report (36 articles were reviewed through keywords, 22 were excluded, 8 were included and 6 were extracted finally for analysis). The study emphasizes the association of shoulder joint injuries in fast bowling cricket players. These studies investigated the prevalence of shoulder injuries in fast bowling cricket players.
