DOES PLAYING HANDBALL REDUCE THE INTERNAL HIP ROTATION? CAUSES, CONSEQUENCES AND PREVENTION 7/12

”If I’d known I was going to live this long,

I would have taken better care of myself.

By analysing the data, we conclude that the consequences of a large volume of handball training on handball players appear at an early age if additional training facilities are not carried out as planned. 

Since we cannot influence the sedentary lifestyle of young handball players, nor the specific requirements of sports, it is necessary to design the work plan so that it contains enough corrective content that is an incentive to reduce imbalances caused by handball training.

The test results of the experimental group

show that the planned implementation of these contents

can reduce the negative impact of specialised handball training

to the extent that young handball players grow up with normal hip mobility. 

It is necessary to start implementing these contents from the youngest age, because the long-term repetition of handball movements creates and determines motor patterns that, by increasing strength to senior age, significantly increase the imbalances created through childhood.
