Description

The research we chose was “measurement of scapula motion in relationship to injury in swimmers and non-swimmers.” The rotator cuff is one of the most used set of muscles in any given sport. It is also one of the most used muscles in everyday activity. When looking for a proper research topic, this stood out from the rest. We both have had injuries pertaining to the rotator cuff and scapular area. Mason is a swimmer and I am an avid golfer. Being more flexible in the rotator cuff area can decrease the injuries one might obtain around that area. We decided that we would take the range of motion measurements of ten male and ten female swimmers, and ten male and ten female non-swimmers in their rotator cuff. This was to see if this hypothesis was accurate or not and to see if there was any difference between the two study groups.
