Abstract

Background: The success of athletes is greatly influenced by their morphological and anthropometric traits.
Numerous studies have examined how often volleyball players experience musculoskeletal pain, which is typically
located in the upper and lower back. The present study was to compare the physiological profiles with or without
musculoskeletal pain in volleyball players.
Purpose: To compare the difference in the physiological profiles of volleyball players with or without
musculoskeletal pain.
Materials and methods: The subjects were collegiate volleyball players selected based on inclusion criteria. They
explained about the study. Volleyball players were allocated into two groups of total 83 containing group A
(n=23) with musculoskeletal pain and group B without musculoskeletal pain. The pro agility shuttle, vertical
jump, standing broad jump, 40-yard test, three cone drill were assessed and the body composition was assessed
using skinfold caliper. The entire process was performed from February 2023 to June 2023.
Result: From the statistical analysis made with quantitative data revealed no statistical difference between group
A and group B
Conclusion: The present study shows there was no significant difference in the physiological profiles of volleyball
players with or without musculoskeletal pain.
