Förekomst av axelsmärta hos svenska slätvattenkanotister och dess correlation till axelleds rörlighet och scapula stabilitet (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to investigate the prevalence of shoulderpain in competetive flatwater kayakers and evaluate if there were any differences in shoulder joint range of motion or scapula stability between kayakers who had experienced shoulderpain and kayakers with no history of shoulderpain. Material and methods: 31 competetive flatwater kayakers participated in the study, a questionnaire for background information and shoulderpain were used. Shoulder range of motion in flexion, internal rotation and external rotation were measured with a Myrin OB Goniometer and the participants were observed for scapula dyskinesis in flexion and abduction. Results: Of the participating kayakers 45.2% had had shoulder pain last season. Kayakers who had experienced shoulder pain had a significant lower degree of internal rotation range of motion in the shoulders versus kayakers with no reported shoulderpain. There were no significant differences in flexion or external rotation. Kayakers with ongoing or previous shoulderpain were observed with a scapula dyskinesis in a significantly higher degree than kayakers with no reported shoulderpain. Conclusion:The findings in this study suggests that screening for scapula dyskinesis and testing for rotational range of motion in the shoulderjoint, may be part of a  preventive program for shoulderpain in kayakers.

 

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie var att undersöka förekomsten av axelsmärta hos tävlingskanotister och att undersöka om det var någon skillnad i rörlighet i axelled, eller skulderstabilitet mellan de kanotister som rapporterade nuvarande eller tidigare axelsmärta med de kanotister som ej haft axelsmärta. Material och metod: 31 tävlingskanotister deltog i studien. De fick fylla i ett frågeformulär om bakgrundinformation samt förekomst av axelsmärta. Axelledsrörlighet i flexion, inåtrotation och utåtrotation mättes med en OB Myrin Goniometer och deltagarna observerades för förekomst av scapula dyskinesi i flexions och abduktionsrörelser. Resultat: 45.2% av kanotisterna hade haft axelsmärta föregående säsong. Kanotister som uppgett axelsmärta nu eller tidigare hade signifikant mindre inåtrotation i axelleden i jämförelse med kanotister som ej haft axelsmärta, det var ingen sigifikant skillnad i flexion eller utåtrotation. Kanotister som hade upplevt axelsmärta hade också i signifikant högre grad scapula dyskinesi än kanotister utan rapporterad axelsmärta. Konklusion: Fynden i denna studie talar för att screening av scapula dyskinesi och axelledsrörlighet kan vara en del av ett preventivt åtgärdsprogram för axelsmärta hos kanotister.
