Gliederung

Text

Objective: The high frequencies of ankle and knee injuries, as well as the associated negative consequences cry out for preventive methods in the point of sport activities. Literatures, both home and international confirm the legitimacy of proprioceptive training in injury prevention, as well as during the follow-up care. However it can be concluded in the light of the results of the relevant literature published on the subject, that the research concerning children is quit scant. The proprioceptive training applied on children has a positive impact on quantitative evidence, even after six weeks of training.

Material/Methods: The sample size was 14 persons, all boys, brought up as reinforcement, playing basketball at competition level. The average age is 10.28 years (min.: 9, max.: 11, SD: 0.61). The proprioceptive training was practiced for 6 weeks, 2 times a week. The sessions were 20 minutes, organized with the method of rotation with 3 stations. The Bretz type of stabilometer provided the numerical data. The values of state static and dynamic balance were obtained as a result of tests carried out on both (N=28).

Results: Measured in millimeters in vertical dimension, the tipping of the centre of body mass towards antero-posterior direction did not (N=28; SD Diff.=17,80; t=1,38; p=0,18), while towards medio-lateral direction showed a significant difference (N=28; SD Diff.=8,09; t=2,66; p=0,01) in paired t-test.

Conclusion: The significant improvement of medio-lateral displacement value quantifies the extent of the lateral muscle groups’ muscle length regulation, which is tantamount to increasing the effectiveness of the defensive reflex action, hoping to decrease the frequency of inversion injuries in the future. The movement of the ankle joint to antero-posterior direction is present with much higher frequency during the regular motions, so it did not show a significant change. In field of the prevention of ankle injury the medio-lateral shift has a greater importance. Based on conclusions drawn from the training meets the objective of exercises has been drawn up, which has demonstrated positive effect after 6 weeks in the case of basketball player in young age.
