Abstract

Background: This study was conducted explicitly on the efficacy of task-oriented exercises paired with wrist
flexibility training on enhancing wrist mobility and reducing wrist injuries in badminton players.
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to see how a structured intervention integrating task- oriented exercises
and wrist flexibility training benefited wrist mobility and injury prevention in badminton players.
Materials and Methods: A randomized controlled trial design was used, with a sample of 70 intermediate- level
badminton players participating. The participants were split into two groups: conventional and intervention. The
intervention group participated in a four-week programme that included task-oriented workouts with badminton
movements and targeted wrist flexibility training. The typical group continued with their regular training schedule,
with no wrist mobility modification. Validated metrics - ROM and Quick DASH score - were used to assess wrist
mobility and function.(Study period : September 2022-May 2023)
Result: Preliminary research found that the intervention group had significantly better wrist mobility than the
control group. They also demonstrated enhanced ROM, flexibility, and functional performance of the wrist joint,
as well as a significant decrease in wrist injury occurrence.
Conclusion: These data indicate that combining task-oriented exercises with wrist flexibility training in badminton
players can successfully improve wrist mobility and lower the incidence of wrist injuries.
