Effect of Sports Specific Warm-Up Protocol on Injury Prevention among Badminton Players
Keywords:Warm-up, incidence rate, exercise training, performance, athletes.
Background: Badminton is a sport in which players use a combination of speed, endurance, strength, and
coordination over lengthy, high-intensity actions that are broken up by rest breaks. In sports, a warm-up is a preexercise
session intended to improve performance in competition or training. Training that has been introduced
into training programmes involves properly warming up the body before physical exercise. General warm up
doesn’t help on injury prevention in all games, so there is a need for sports specific warm up programs to promote
more flexibility and readiness before the specific strength training and power training.
Purpose: To assess the impact of a sports-specific warm-up procedure on badminton players’ ability to avoid
Materials and Method: From the SDAT in Chennai, a total of 100 young badminton players were chosen. With
a mean age of 22.35 ± 3.23, there were 59 male and 41 female players among them. Injury Rate, Epidemiological
Incidence Proportion and Incidence Rate were used as outcome measures. The players were split into two groups,
one of which received a sports-specific warm-up procedure and the other of which received a generic warm-up
Results: By the descriptive statistics of the collected data, the Sports Specific Warm-up group showed better
improvement in preventing injuries compared to the conventional group.
Conclusion: It has been concluded that Sports Specific Warm-up plays a vital role in preventing on-field injuries
among badminton players.
