The Effect of Using Adhesive Tapes (Kenzo Tape) in Rehabilitating the Shoulder Muscles of Throwing Players in Paralympic Athletics Events
Main Article Content
The purpose of this paper is to identifying the effect of using adhesive tapes (kenzo tape) in rehabilitating the injured shoulder muscles of athletes with physically handicapped, identify the effect of the rehabilitation method and the tapes (kenzo tape) on improving measurements of (muscle force, degree of pain, muscle flexibility) , and identify the differences between the pre and post-tests for the physically handicapped. The researchers used the experimental approach in one group design to fit the nature of the research with pre, between and post-test, where the research sample community consisted of (8) players of the national sports team with handicapped in the throwing event, who represent the research community, and (3) people who did not apply to them were excluded. Specifically, in the research, where (5) players who had an injury to the shoulder muscles were identified as shown in the table, and who were chosen in a deliberate manner by means of clinical examination and medical diagnosis for each player, as the percentage of the research sample reached (%), which is the percentage of the sample’s representation from the community search. One of the most important results reached by the researcher is that: The effect of using adhesive tapes (kenzo tape) in rehabilitating the injured shoulder muscles of physically-handicapped athletes by reducing pain, the effect of the rehabilitation method and the (kenzo tape) on improving the measures of (muscle strength, degree of pain, and muscle flexibility) , and there were differences between the pre and post-tests for the physically handicapped by reducing pain and increasing physically range. One of the most important recommendations recommended by the researchers is that: Use of rehabilitative exercises and adhesive tapes for the injured in the shoulder and those who have weakness in the shoulder muscles and blinding in the training centers for the physically handicapped and the rehabilitation centers, and use of adhesive tapes (kenzo tape) for all players, whether physically handicapped or normal, during training or between training units, because of its strength, increased movement and protection from injury.
